SE/30 boot problem with PDS Assante ethernet card

Recommended Posts

I have an internal Assante ethernet that works with one of my SE/30 units. I have moved it to the other one, and this causes a boot error. I have washed the board, and will be replacing the capacitors that Trag sent to me. I'm hoping this will correct the problem.

 

Any ideas why the card would work in one unit, but not the other ?

The machine is likely not getting sufficient right power because of failing components, e.g., on the logic board or power supply or both. The pds card puts additional strain on these components, causing a failure to boot.

 

That's my theory.

it just seems strange that it only causes the problem in one of the machines, not both. i will replace the capacitors on both of my boards and post the results.
