  1. So when I first acquired my PowerWave, it had some posting issues which were due to RAM, which were resolved quickly and the machine ran well. However, after decided to upgrade from the "fine" Mach64 with a Rage128 I had sitting around, things got weird: get a chime and then the screen gets a signal briefly, then nothing. not even a black screen, my monitor just says there's no signal. The machine wouldn't post at all, even after a board reset before powering back on. Tried pulling RAM, reseating the ROM, reseating and changing out CPU daughtercards. Nothing. I put the Mach64 and it immediately posts and boots right up. I upgrade/reinstall the ATi drivers, shutdown, replace with the Rage128, reset the board, power on, and after a few seconds it finally posts. Okay, fine, no harm done I guess. Time comes where I have to reset the PRAM. Upon doing so, I'm back to a black screen, no posting at all, nothing beyond the bong. Would the ROM on the PowerWave just see the Rage128 and not know what to make of it because it's too new? This all seems very odd. Just wondering if anyone has any advice or has had a similar experience. Edit: as an addendum, if it really is something about a contemporary (to a PowerMac 85/9500) that it needs as far as a graphics card, what would be a decent replacement for the Mach64? VRAM modules for them are nearly double what you can get a standalone card for.
  2. Question for those of you SE/30 owners who use a PDS video card with an external display. I have a Micron Xceed video card and grayscale setup. Grayscale works great on the internal CRT, but I've never used the DB-15 port also offered by the video card. I have a 15" Color VGA LCD that's about 10 years old. Would this adapter on Amazon be all that I would need? (Not sure how those DIP switches on the adapter are used in case like this though.) Note the horizontal scan rate mentioned in the Xceed manual page below of 31.5kHz, which seems rather odd (maybe common for Apple though?). Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
  3. So i've tried once to upgrade the video card for my G4 cube, which has 16mb VRAM from the factory. I have found that the few other cards for G4 tower computers that technically *will* fit in the Cubes short AGP slot, but do not fit well, they need things removed, don't fit flush (ie are recessed and monitor cable doesn't plug in well), etc. etc. The G4 cube supposedly had a factory 32MB options from two companies (source Low End Mac): ATI Radeon with 32 MB of VRAM Nvidia GeForce2 MX with 32 MB VRAM Had anyone seen these in the wild ever? Do both of them exist to peoples knowledge? Would love to find one someday, but starting to lose hope on the factory upgrade card.
  4. I saw this in the Ebay Finds thread: And yes, that is a very cool feature. My first Asante card did not have this so here is the MacGruber I needed to do to run the Asante with a video card: I made the back plane out of an old PC case sheet metal with some Dremel work. The card is rotated 90 degrees so that I could use the mounting screw for the "Thick" connection to hold it in place. Because it was close to the back of the tube it is protected with a plastic sheet covered in electrical tape. Fast forward to the only real "deal" I have come across on Ebay. That was for a Misc Mac parts grab bag. It was a single auction that included 3 of the Asantes with the special detachable "Thick" daughter card and a MicroMac Carrera 040 with the IIsi card. I think it was only $65 w/ shipping. So here is one of those cards in action:

  6. So, I might be getting a decently sized conquest of Mac stuff this weekend from trades. There'll probably be a post from me in that section around Satueday, but for now I've got a question. Among this lot is a Macintosh Color Display, the 640x480 CRT. From what I've heard and read, the only input is a DA-15 cable. I have two questions regarding this. Firstly, is it at all possible to wire an adapted to allow composite input? The form factor and resolution would be perfect for my N64 and C64 if so, and I'm willing to solder a cable. This seems quite unlikely, but honestly, I'd be over the moon if it was possible. I've been looking for a decent CRT for a while and if this is possible it'd fit the bill perfectly as well as being useable with Macs. Secondly, I want to get this monitor running with my SE as an external display. What kind of card would I need to drive this and how could I get one? I know they're pretty rare, likely, and I haven't got a ton of money. What makes should I be on the lookout for? I haven't got a pizza box Mac or a tower to hook it up to; I've currently only got compact macs. So, it looks like a nice monitor that isn't too big (14"), and I'm happy to have it when I get it. I was just wondering what I need to do to get it going and could use all the advice I could get. Thanks!

    LC PDS Video Card questions

    Hi All, I recently picked up two video cards for the LC PDS slot. I'm not sure where to find the drivers as Google isn't really turning up any good results. The first card is a Formac Pronitron LC/FP display video card. It appears to have the standard 15 pin Macintosh video connector on it. Does anyone know where I can find the drivers for this card? Also, a user manual would be awesome. I'm hoping to use it with a VGA adapter to drive an external display at 640*480. The second card is also a Formac labled model. However, I'm less sure of which one it is exactly. A sticker on the ROM says PG/LC Rev. 1.0. Additionally, it isn't using a standard 15 pin Mac video connector, but rather a connector that looks similar to VGA, but only has two rows of pins, with 5 pins on the top row and 4 pins on the bottom row. Does anyone know any more details about this card or at least what type of connector it is? If photos are required of either card I can provide them. Thanks, Justin

    Radius Pivot SE/30 - Monitors?

    Hey I've bought a Radius Pivot Color Card for my SE/30 a long time ago now. I also own the IIsi varient of this card, and I know it works on the SE/30 (PDS are electronically compatible) with a Samsung 17" Multisync LCD. I am using a DA-15 to VGA adapter, it has 8 switches (if memory serves) so you can set the correct resolution. I forgot what combination I used but I know I wrote it down somewhere. I think the two cards are pretty similar. So theoretically the same setup should work with the SE/30 specific card. But I'm running in a few problems. I tried installing the drivers from the MacGarden. I put these drivers there myself. I know they work since megabyte used them with his Pivot card and his SE/30 can now see the external monitor. Whereas the IIsi version didn't need any drivers to work, I think the SE/30 one does. If someone has one of these, I'd like to know which drivers you have installed. Also, I'd like to know if the "Macintosh Color Display", that's the 14 inch one, works with the Radius Pivot. The one I have at home doesn't display anything, I think it might be dead. I've bought an LCII. Does it work on the LCII without the need for a PDS video card? I'd like to test it with the LCII. Help much appreciated!
