  1. Did some more testing today. With the card not installed I disabled the cache in the control panel and then restated with the card installed. It then booted fine but the system would still freeze after running for a while or sometimes crash at warm boot with different bus errors. I tried removing the FPU and that caused no change. It is safe to say that this card is the culprit and I have contacted the seller. The onboard cache obviously has some issues and probably so does the CPU, unfortunately it is a QFP package so I can't do a simple swap to see if the fully confirm that the CPU is bad.
  2. @joshc With everything installed the 5V rail at the floppy port is 4.91V which I think is well above the low which is iirc 4.6? The 12V rail is holding steady at 12.41V. I ran Specter VR in demo mode to put a load on video and CPU.
  3. After I posted this and playing Specter VR and a few other games and trying to run a ram disk that I use for website cache I was getting some bus errors from various INTs and programs. I’m going to check voltages later today when I’m back home but I’m starting to think the accelerator may be the culprit.
  4. Phone net and there was an active line on the two wires that it uses? Just a guess, that is 48v and can spike to 90v. I almost killed a IIvx as a kid, it smoked the adapter.
  5. Well, Rominator II absent no change, Pivot IIsi absent no change. All while running 7.1 it still froze when trying to load the extension during start up or if I tried loading it if I booted with it not in the system folder once I got to the finder. Just finished putting it all back in and running benchmarks in 7.6.1 it is using the accelerator by default when installed with no control panel installed based on multiple test results showing nearly double the scores in CPU tests with it in the machine. The card is a Daystar Power Cache P34 with a QFP CPU running at 33mhz
  6. @mactjaap @Cory5412 thank you for the help. Yeah got a Duo 2300c system 9.1, and a Portable with system 7.1 both onto the web to various degree last week.
  7. For months it’s been running with everything but the accelerator with no issues. In 7.6.1 it reports the accelerator as the active processor in Tattletech and in Speed Test. However I can’t use any of the three control panels. I think I may have two issues one, 7.6.1 doesn’t need the extension and everything I’ve read so far only talks about working with 7.5.5 and/or the control panel is incompatible with the rom. I will know later today when I get home. I may also try moving it up in the boot sequence before totally taking it apart. @joshc the power supply wires and plug are new. Whe
  8. I've been trying to use a few different versions of the Control Panel with the System hanging when it loads. I even did a fresh install of 7.1 and got the same result. Tomorrow I will try with the original ROM installed. Has anyone observed this behavior before?
  9. I remember seeing it somewhere as someones guess as to a possible anniversary Mac in the early 2000s.
  10. I just tried it out on my Macintosh Portable and it runs great at the SE/30 recommended settings!
  11. The 575 supports 7.1 - 8.1. That should be the same for your modded color classic. You may need a special system enabler though for 7.1.
  12. The manufacturer that I talked with a year ago wants a gerber file, I’ve never done this. What software would anybody here recommend? Or would anyone who would be interested in creating it? It’s a fairly simple single layer flex pcb as compared to others I’ve seen. Any help would be greatly appreciated. At fist I was thinking straight copy, then I thought why not have a section of ribbon cable where mine failed from opening and closing the lid that way that part of it can be replaced easily if it were to break again there.
  13. Thanks, I’ll give it a go. @Cory5412 you’re right thanks I had some wires crossed in my head.
  14. Has anyone done this I haven't been able to find any instructions other than it is optware. My thought was to have it encapsulate IP packets in Appletalk and for those machines that can only connect via Localtalk would have access to the internet. For example possibly play some Bolo on my Duo 2300.
  15. I had an issue that was rectified using an 80 wire cable instead of the original 40 wire on a Beige G3.
  16. This is so cool I want to roll my own compact now and this would be the board to get their. Maybe build a case out of acrylic I’ve had some decent results on some small stuff. I’ve been thinking about a Lisa type case since the first time I saw one.
  17. I just got it running today! However since the first time booting it I have not been able to adjust the contrast since. It seemed to change on its own after a boot cycle to a slightly lower contrast and since then moving the slider up or down does nothing. already tried disconnecting the battery and letting it sit a few along with reseting the power manager, I also checked to see if it had a preference but there was none to delete. Any ideas?
  18. The vast majority of these that I have seen except for my SE have screen burn in. My Dad had AfterDark installed pretty much since day one, plus he was pretty adamant about turning it off when not in use.
