  1. This is my first keyboard of that type, they've really become scarce!
  2. My mom calls me up today to tell me she bought me an "old Apple computer" at an estate sale. It turned out to be this complete Macintosh SE setup, which was used by the daughter of the estate owners during her college years at Drexel University. It took some cleaning due to sitting for twenty plus years but it fired right up, and the cleaned and greased floppy drives work perfectly.
  3. Wait, the 1.25GHz model is hit hardest by the capacitor plague? That's weird, my 1.25GHz eMac that spent who knows how long sitting in a box unused worked just fine the last couple times I used it.
  4. Yeah, I plan on servicing it as soon as I can but I need some tools beforehand, like those long T-handle Allen wrenches that are just about mandatory to service the LCS. And I don't even know what kind of coolant to put in to replace what's in there now...
  5. My old thread is buried...somewhere and I didn't feel like digging it up, so I just decided to make a new one. The main conquest I've had recently is my G5 Quad, which I purchased locally off Facebook Marketplace for $150. What a machine it is! I can't wait to upgrade it and see what it can do.
  6. I've never had any problems with my 12 inch 1.33GHz iBook G4, aside from the fact that it was very slow running Leopard. I did upgrade it to a mSATA solid state drive not long after I got it, though, so that probably helps it some. Weirdly enough, even with the solid state drive the palm area gets really warm.
  7. I actually just purchased a G5 Quad today and was wanting to replace the coolant in the LCS, so this thread is very helpful!
  8. Ouch, I thought my badly dented and scratched 15" "High Res" G4 was sad...at least that one's internally intact and works.
  9. I already have a G5 but I might be able to score a working Quad in the next week or so...
  10. If by that you mean a jumper covering the "Term Power" pins, then yeah. If not...then no, I don't have a hard drive in this system yet or any kind of internal 50pin SCSI terminator. I couldn't get it to even TRY to boot off a CD so I got tired of it and mothballed it until I decide I want to work on it again.
  11. Okay, I've tried the Apple drive jumpered as close as I can be to the original drive and either I'm still wrong or the drive just doesn't work because it won't read discs either.
  12. Nah, it's a NEC drive! I have an Apple 8x drive that I'll try out first, but if that doesn't work either I have to go shopping.
  13. Sure, first I need to fix the whole "non-working CD-ROM drive" issue I've got going on though.
  14. Hmm, that's a bit disappointing but understandable.
  15. I have a Power Computing PowerCenter 150, and I also have an Apple 200MHz 604e CPU card. Could I put the 200MHz card in the PowerCenter, or does it require only PowerComputing CPU cards for some reason? And if it can accept an Apple CPU card, can you freely upgrade from 604 to 604e or am I stuck with only regular 604 cards?
