  1. Anyone know what screw size is needed to secure the back panel of a Performa 5xx ?
  2. I picked up a Seagate ST32151N 2.1GB 50pin SCSI hard drive. Im hoping to put it in my Performa 550. Problem is...I don't know much about SCSI. http://office.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/seagate/st32151nwwc.html It does not show up as an option during OS install or under any Apple disk utility or SCSI setup. I've tried playing around with the different jumper setting/termination settings. Does this hard drive even work in this computer? Any help on the what the correct jumper settings should be for a performa 550? Thanks

    Seagate SCSI HD help needed

    Update: I may have figured this out with the help of the patched Apple HD SC app. It is initializing now...
  4. I had good success following this guide on-line, with some modifications: https://imgur.com/gallery/hecBMSW Instead of microwaving the belt (wife absolutely forbid it), I boiled water in a pot and put the belt on a small strainer so that it was suspended about 1/3 from the top. Let boil for 10-15 minutes Follow the rest of the directions on the page. Clean the black roller and make it semi tacky. After removing the belt, i gave it a VERY quick spray shot of Loctite spray adhesive. Just enough to make it a little tacky as well. Drive works almost like new. I'll make sure and use it frequently over the next few days to make sure nothing actually got glued and stuck. IMG_9802.m4v IMG_9803.m4v

  7. Hi all. I bought a new battery for my iBook G4 and although on the battery it shows 5200mAh OS X is only seeing 4222 (with a cycle count of 4). Same with coconut battery. It registers the original battery capacity at 4400mAh, with a maximum capacity of 4222. any ideas?
