  1. Is it possible to create a benchmark to compare the first Mac to the last Mac?(from 68xxx processors to the most recent like M1) That would be great!
  2. How about Mac II series and compact Macs?
  3. Thanks guys.At the moment I will stick with 8mb and 7.1 as operating system because 7.5.3 feels a bit slow.
  4. I've just installed 8mb ram and I will run 7.1. If I install over 16mb ram and 7.5.5 the SE/30 will be any faster or not? I want you opinion please for amount of ram.
  5. Also can I use different type of modules.I want to put 8mb but the 4 simms are different than the other 4.All are 1mb simms
  6. As I said before,I had 5mb with 4x1mb and 4x256k and machine worked fine. The 256k modules are in front(A bank) and 4mb modules in the back. Maybe I will try with another modules.
  7. My motherboard -recently recapped- and my modules.First bank has 4 modules 256kb each second bank modules 4mb.I think the problem is the modules.They have only 2 chips per module.As a result my SE/30 sees only 2mb of ram.
  8. I have a SE/30 recently recapped from a very good technician.If had 5mb of ram (4x256 and 4x1mb).I have changed the brand new modules(4x4mb-60ns) from the IIci to SE/30.I have putted on the first bank(A bank).Machine does not boot and had stripes on monitor and the sound of death. Then I have install them to bank B and install the 4x256kb to bank A.Shows me only 2Mb ram... Also I have a Seagate 2gb hard disk the finder can’t see it properly...
  9. Disks are from original Photoshop 2.0... Can I repair the drives or not?
  10. I have tried my original Photoshop 2 disks to my Classic II and LC475 and suddenly neither of two internal disk drives reads any disk...(before both machines read/write normally all the disks) Is it possible a disk to destroy the disk drives?
  11. I have a Performa 450 but seems completely dead.I have added a working battery but nothing.Does not start up or any sound from power supply... what can I do?
  12. I have found this article about floppy drives: https://siber-sonic.com/mac/superfloppy.html?fbclid=IwAR18XgxXhnJc7e0NmGx6ir0MBB2egMNsBUls_wyBZyjsgzRpYbYdDgtAZRo
  13. Thanks very much ArmorAlley but I don't want to spend so much money for this floppy EMU(I prefer to spend the money to an old Mac). I have seen two options on eBay but I don't know if they will fit in my IIfx? Can I post the links here?
  14. Thanks very much Bolle. The problem now is where can I find the right floppy drive for the IIfx
  15. Guys can I use these floppy drives(I think they are from LC) with my Macintosh IIfx or not?
  16. Guys can we find a schematic for the Power Mac 7500 for a friend because he want it for fix some caps from the motherboard.He does not have sound and has problem with two caps as he said to me.
  17. I have the Power Mac 6100 but got low level sound from the speaker.Need to recap it or not?
  18. If I make fast on/off, boots but then makes blinking.I believe its the ROM.(which is the stock ROM)
  19. allright guys, i found that the vram failed, so i removed it, sockets and installed spare ones. now i get horizontal stripes that after reset i have chime and blinking mouse and disk sign
  20. From a friend of mine who has problem with his SE/30 "Hello Guys! I've recently owned a SE/30 .i have the squares on my screen that indicates interruption between rom and cpu. i have recapped my board using tantalum caps and problem still persists. i found another SE/30, tried the rom simm and ram and the problem is there. also ive tried my Rom Simm and ram on the working one and checks ok. finally i've found the schematics and pin by pin checked the continuity and everything seems to checked ok. Also there is no Chime sound I am attachiing you pics of the board. A
  21. I have also shut down issue with my IIfx.I haven't recap it yet unfortunately.
  22. Worth updating the ram to 32mb or 16mb? I want to use Mac OS 7.5
  23. I want to upgrade my SE/30 to 32MB of ram.I have found 8 modules 4MB 30 pin ram but are all non parity.Will they work or not?
