A few days ago I picked up some vintage apple Macintosh computers along with some vintage apple accessories and was ecstatic when the person giving me the computers said I could have their Macintosh IIfx in near mint cosmetic condition (besides some yellowing of the plastic) free of charge. When I got home however and opened the beastly machine I was presented with one of the worse cases of PRAM battery leakage I have ever seen. Both the PRAM batteries had leaked onto the motherboard and it was not pretty to say the least. Now I'm tasked with repairing my Macintosh IIfx but I don't even know where to start. Any advice? Here's a picture of the leak before I started cleaning it: Here's a picture after I got some of the gunk off (yes many parts fell off.): Can I save this logic board? Will it take years, months, weeks, days? Is this worth my time. Is it impossible or possible but very difficult? I really don't want to see this computer go.
Jeroen Wartenbergh posted a topic in Mac II, Quadra & CentrisHi, Last week I (Dutchman, Amsterdam) bought a Macintosh IIfx from an German auction site. It came with a 'modern' ethernet card: 10/100 Mbit and RJ-45 connector, along with some other cards. Unfortunately, I don't have a clue where to get drivers. Asanté drivers won't work, has anyone got a clue where to obtain those? Due to the Radius Rocket 33, I hope these drivers will support System 7.1. Below some detailed photo's of the card and 2 with the card inside the Mac. The ethernet card is the 3rd from the left... Would it matter which slot it resides in? At first, I was hoping to do some fishing in the German language 5 1/4" Apple HD 40, but that crashed on me. So no luck there. After that, I've tried 1 of the other 4 remaining cards that came with the deal, a FWB JackHammer. The control panel has an update feature where you can select the card you want to update, no luck either as it did not mention any cards at all... Does anyone have a clue what brand / model this could be and if so, where to obtain drivers? Thanks in advance, cheers, Jeroen.
