    SE/30 Unstable behaviour after 128MB RAM install

    Thanks Pb, i might try to make a plastic shim as well as solder the pins. Why would apple make it different only on the se/30 thats so annoying

    Yes i read that too but only after buying it and unsuccessfully installing it, taking the simm to my sisters this weekend to add solder to the contacts to help it fit better.

    Ok thought so im no electronics person but my sister is ex ministry of defence electronics specialist so I’ll get her to solder it for me otherwise there’d be blobs every where lol do you need to add much? If i grt it soldered and use bands hopefully that will be enough

    Thanks Bolle, back side, is that the side with the skull or the side with the chips? Do you think blobs of solder will work?

    Hi trag I believe its an se/30 only issue the rominator site mentions a simm shim for se/30 but I’ve googled that i get nothing so I’m at a loss about what that is

    Not tried it yet lago the wife had other plans for my evening and not in a good way, chores and being taxi to the kids oh well, anyway interesting is it poor design then as surely 95% of them would be used in se/30’s at the prime candidate for needing 32 bit clean rom and having 128mb expansion capabilities? I suppose we should be happy someone even designed it at all! Ok I’ll get more bands from work and maybe some blutac as a wedge. Thanks for that as I don’t want to keep opening the case.

    Early Mac LC proto?

    That clear one is awesome, nice prototype! I noticed a few of you said the LC is you’re favourite mac? Why’s that! Interesting as I’ve just acquired an LC II. I’ve not had the chance to look at it properly yet, cleaned the motherboard from a little goo (not a lot mind) and luckily no battery problem which was a nice surprise, i cleaned up and retrobrited the case, cleaned floppy drive yesterday but as yet not looked at the power supply or tried turning it on. I brought it as i wanted another Apple keyboard II for my se/30 as I don’t like the extended keyboards, the keyboards are going for approx £40 on eBay at the moment and this LCII I brought came with an external scsi cd-300 cd-rom, style writer II printer, keyboard II, an early abd mouse and a 12 inch acorn monitor all for £30 but was sold as not working. Thought I’d try to get it working the sell it on eBay as I already have a working 6200cd with os 8.6 i use to get online and download software for my se/30 and play some 640x480 games. Also have a slightly dodgy keyboard that require some attention at the mo so I wasn’t even contemplating keeping the LC, is that a mistake? Should i keep it

    Interesting C! I didn’t quite understand either mind you I’ve not got the rom working yet going to try again tomorrow with an elastic band.

    if you’re on 7.1 You’ll be ok. I’m on 7.5.5 with my se/30, i didn't go ssd and instead have a 1gb hhd and as yet a not setup network card something i’ll look at once i get the rom and ram upgraded. I brought a cheap PowerPc 6200CD which I’ve got os8.6 and Netscape 7 so i can get on macintoshgarden for software, throw in a few scsi zip drives and a few CD-ROMs i can transfer stuff easily . I have a 2007 Mac mini too and as soon as i get tiger 10.4 intel for it the plan is to network them all and use the mac mini as an ssl email client so i can then email from the se/30 well thats the plan
