If it had s9p7 very unstable, I probably would’ve remembered it, but I suppose these could be troublesome in certain configurations. This site hosts no abandonware. I think one of the main reasons I never put it together again after I had moved and had everything stores in boxes was because the old harddrive I used in that rig was just so damned loud! Sl97 don’t remember specifically if it was flickering or a color issue or what exactly, but it was some kind of problem like that.
Didn’t matter which video card I used.
There was a note on it saying that it had flaky video and floppy port. You can teach a man to fish and feed him for life, but if sl97 can’t handle sushi you must also teach him to cook. My retro rigs old topic Interesting Vogons threads links to Vogonswiki Report spammers here!
I have heard similar experiences from other people and actually thought it was the usual case with those chips.
Capacitors look okay and I have not found any other defects either. Otherwise it doesn’t work. There has to be always two or four memory modules.
Board index All times are UTC. Its not like components found in trash after 20 years in rain dont still work flawlessly.
Exabot [Bot]Google [Bot]xjas and 10 guests. The AT power supply voltages are also in okay as I checked them. For the most of the time, the screen is black when powering on, but sometimes it manages to start. I did play some games on it, but I axus can’t remember if it had any particular issues that weren’t because of the semi-randomness with which this system was put together 98SE was autopatched iirc, harddrive was suspended DIY-style, can’t azus what sound solution I used.
There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. I don’t remember anything about the floppy issue, but I do remember having problems with the video output.
If you want a good socket 7 board that can do it all i would go for a super socket 7 board as it supports every single socket 7 cpu including the k, k at full speed mhz frontside bus and has an asud slot. Please advice if you have experience of similar problems.
It was one of my earlier rigs completed and was more a testbench for some experiments. Users browsing this forum: This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA.
The one defective memory module was the reason why the computer didn’t start. I haven’t deliberately owned another of that vintage or newer SIS board since even though I heard later chipsets were okay.
If you want a non-super 7 board i would look for an intel tx or hx board. The price will probably be between euros, so it’s not very much. I have also tried with different memory module combinations, no effect. This would make it good for running some of the weirder Cyrix chips or just for overclocking of Pentiums.
