  1. I looked at the system profiler, and the card appears to be a Geforce 2 MX. The shop I took my computer was an Apple Authorized shop, by the way. Anyway, the drivers worked. But now the control strip is in that funky position. How do you movie it back down again?
  2. I just got my Sawtooth G4 back from the shop with a new graphics card. I can't exactly tell what it's supposed to be, but it looks like a Geforce 4 MX. I don't have a digital camera, so I can't take pictures of the card, unfortunately. Anyway, I turned my computer back on, and I've lost 3D acceleration, resolutions above 640x480, and even sleep mode! I can only think of this being due to a total lack of compatible drivers for my computer. And the card didn't even come with a driver disc. So I need drivers. I'm using Mac OS 9.2.1, by the way.
  3. If you're interested... http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3281698&CatId=694 That card is almost certainly not compatible with Macs out of the box (in case you were confused by the fact they keep mentioning Mac over and over again in the description). It may be flash-able though. I was interested in this card for the reasons you mentioned, but it was more the fact that I currently make very little money. I get a $17.00 bi-weekly allowance from my parents, and any other money I make is through loose change or from various chores around the

  5. I've been thinking about this for a little while now, and it seems to me that in my old Elementary school, there were candy iMacs that could go all the way down to Black & White. I know this, because I remember playing a Muppet-themed educational game in school which repeatedly asked to be taken down to 16 colors, and the iMac went down every time I clicked OK. I also remember seeing a Black & White option in the control strip. Perhaps this was a school-only version of the iMac, or possibly an upgrade card that allowed this? I'd like to know if anybody here has seen or heard ab
  6. First, the good news. I just got a new Apple IIe for free from a friend! It's got a printer, color monitor, and two disk drives. Now, the bad. The power supply shorted out within just the first couple hours after acquiring this thing. > I would like to know if there are any good replacements or repair services I can use.
  7. I had a sneaking suspicion in the back of my mind that that was the problem.
  8. I have an original Macintosh LC that refuses to start up. Nothing displays, and the only thing that happens is a clicking coming from the power supply. I do not have any devices in the SCSI port that are causing this. All I did was open it up. I tried pulling out the 68030 accelerator card, and it still doesn't work. There is no gunk coming from any chips or circuts that I can see, or anything else. I really wish it didn't have to come to this. Now both my color capable 68k macs are broken!
  9. Speaking of the 2010 problem, I think we should spare a thought for all those poor Zenith Supersports, which are no longer able to keep the current date and time (their clocks only go up to 2007). Maybe a BIOS hack should be arranged for them.
  10. I do agree with you. I was just making a funny at the time. Still, even the first-gen Intel Mac Pros and iMacs tend to be quite pricey compared to the G5 Macs. But yes, if Classic is a must then a G5 would probably be best. Then again, a late-model G4 Power Mac would serve you just as well for a lot less, or just find yourself a classic Mac that can run Mac OS 9 and move to an Intel Mac. The cost of a G4 or earlier to run OS 9 shouldn't make a dent on the prospect of purchasing an Intel Mac. Alternatively, you could install a CPU upgrade in an early model G4 like my Sawtooth (such as
  11. It's not a secret, it's a myth. When it was the only machine they offered you could claim it was the best Apple machine for anything at all. Ah, but add "GS" on the end and it becomes a different story entirely.
  12. All that would need to happen to make that truly viable would be for someone to start manufacturing accelerator cards for the IIGS again.
  13. Just an NES emulator itself would be kick-@$$ since the CPU used in both are nearly identical. The NES's 2A03 CPU is a modified 6502. The problem is the NES had extra sound and video chips, which would have to be emulated as well. The last problem is that I don't think NES ROM files will fit on a 140K disk. There are actually NES roms that are only 32K in size.
  14. In the meantime, you should probably set up some ads on the main page, so you can get funds for the server. I'm not sure why you didn't think of that before.
