    What the heck? Only $25? How?

    Power Mac 5500 picture problem

    I always push the brightness down as far as possible on any CRT I use, whether it's a TV or a computer monitor. Haven't had a CRT die yet!

    Pretty neat monitor, but if I'm gonna have a monochrome monitor I'd like to get an amber Amdek unit.

    Or uh, y'know, the Tandy CM-11, which is much cheaper than a 1084 in my experience...

    Great to see you've pulled this off! Can't wait to see the fully finished model.

    Well I mean, even though it's a Pentium 100 the previous owner stuck 80MB of RAM in it so it runs pretty good.

    I do wish there was a way to strip IE out since I'll never use it but what can you do.

    Yeah, I always install OSR2.5. FAT32 and stability improvements always make it worthwhile. Of course, I probably could have just installed 98SE...

    Yeah, that's exactly how the BIOS is on that Compaq. Right now I'm struggling with sound on that XPS though, I installed drivers for the sound card (A Soundblaster Vibra 16) but I get an "Incorrect MIDIPORT setting in the SYSTEM.INI file" error I can't seem to fix, I have no sound, and the card doesn't even show up in Device Manager. EDIT: Turns out the Found New Hardware Wizard was the trick! Glorious sound!

    How weird, all of my problems were because somehow the drive got partitioned as FAT16 instead of FAT32. Repartitioned it, made sure it was FAT32, and bam, it works!

    Yeah, this machine's done that for as long as I'm willing to put up with the racket, a lot longer than 60 seconds.

    First of all, I'm installing 95 OSR2 as its the only version of 95 I use. And second of all, I did in fact run a surface scan and it found zero bad sectors. It's a 2113MB Seagate drive that has a 2042MB DOS partition so it's just under 2GB.

    I seem to be attracting Windows 95 machines because today I got surprised with a mint Dell Dimension XPS P100c. All original except for the RAM (it got upgraded to 80MB at some point) and hard disk (I had to put one in), has a Trio 64+ video card and a SoundBlatster Vibra 16S ISA sound card. Now if only I could figure out why I can't install Windows 95 on it. There's nothing wrong with the hard disk but the setup just gets stuck and starts thrashing the hard drive like crazy.

    LaCie MO 230 drive for PB 190 or 5300

    No actually, I haven't. I guess it's worth a shot.

    LaCie MO 230 drive for PB 190 or 5300

    I'm pretty sure it's black and white only, but I was still kind of surprised it could handle a PAL signal. Yeah, it's a PAL 1200. Imported from jolly old England.
