Unrelated to the PSU issues.
So I have never seen my 6100 working. Here's where I have the machine after stripping it to basics:
-Recapped logic board
-New PRAM battery
-No ram in the slots (onboard ram only)
-ROM in slot closest to PDS
You turn the machine on and nothing. The CPU gets toasty after a while but otherwise there is no chime or any signs of life besides the PSU fan and the front LED.
I've heard of this once before. Someone had a machine similar in spec to mine and was a little to eccentric installing the DOS PDS board. The cable dressing between the board and the heatsink of the 601 has to be done properly or else when you press the card in you force down on the CPU and crack it. I took my heatsink off:
I mean, it could be a weird ripple in how the epoxy set when the chip was fabbed. The obvious signs of the chip being broken in two are not there. One side of the of the chip isn't sitting higher or lower than the other and under a loupe I can't see something like a hairline crack.
If the chip is cracked the board is trash. What other things on the board could I of missed in case we are not looking at a bad CPU?
