    The Holy Grail of PCI Macs: Daystar Millennium Quad 604.

    @Compgeke No MacOS 8.6 support?

    $25 PowerBook 190CS with 32MB RAM expansion

    The 190/5300 shipped with some middle version of 7 (7.5.3 maybe?). At any rate, as long as you use one version later you shouldn’t need to worry about enablers. Any Disk Tools disk from 7.6/7.6.1 or 8.0/8.1 should work without any special setup. Congrats on the sweet find!

    Stress testing an SE/30?

    My main SE/30 fails the apple diagnostics video RAM check, but runs fine otherwise with no symptoms. I wouldn’t worry too much if something does come back with failures.

    An Expensive TV...Macintosh TV Logic Board in a Color Classic

    @Trash80toHP_Mini Ah yes, the LC PDS slot exchange for the tuner card, forgot that one. I think we covered it @KnobsNSwitches if you do get it working please share what you did. Definitely a cool project for the pure case of “why not?”

    An Expensive TV...Macintosh TV Logic Board in a Color Classic

    I believe the CC can handle 10mb RAM where as the TV logic board can only address 8mb RAM. Also, CC supports FPU, TV does not, iirc. that said, hooking up a PlayStation 1 to a color classic sounds cool. And the TV logic board can run 7.1 plenty confidently, and up to 7.5.5 reasonably well if you keep your expectations tempered appropriately. (Speaking from my own experience there)
  9. I ran (well.. walked I suppose) my Dos Compatibility 6100 card with Windows 95. Between the PC Setup 1.6.4 disks (2 of them I believe) and Windows 95 install CD everything worked as i’d expected it to. This was with the Mac running 8.1. Were you trying Windows 3.1 or just DOS? Just curious in case I try to go to something more responsive in the future if I ever put the card back in.

    Floppy drive compatibility question

    If you plan to keep the Performance 630, I second getting an Ethernet card for it. Otherwise, picking up a USB floppy drive will allow the sawtooth and iMac to work with floppies. USB floppy drives can usually be found in the $5 to $15 range.

    Beige G3 Strange Issues

    Have you tried unplugging the hard drive(s)? My beige G3 takes a minute to display video when booting OSX. If yours has that issue AND is freezing in middle of boot, could leave you on a blank screen. Also, any PCI cards installed?

    Not a "Classic" Checkerboard Issue

    @DistantStar001 everyone has given some great advice here. Best of luck, should be fixable . @techknight and @Alex I generally bake my boards at 160 (lowest my oven goes) for 45 minutes after cleaning. I also do a final rinse with 91% alcohol immediately before baking, so it should evaporate much faster than water anyways. Seems like everyone has their own variation of the process.

    Question on graphics on Color Classic

    But in all seriousness, aside from your “colourresolution” issue, your image looks like crap and you DO need to adjust it. It isn’t sized right, appears to be bowing slightly at the edges and (depending on your phone camera), may have a slight focus issue. Good luck dude.

    Question on graphics on Color Classic

    ... well clearly you seem to know what is right and wrong so I’m sure you will figure it out.
