    Yeah, the GF4 Ti4600 works! I had to change few caps since few were in bad condition.

    Now I'll test that Asus K8V SE Deluxe + A64 setup. :toast:

    Awesome 9700!!! The Ti4600 was one of my all time favorite video cards! I remember buying one to attend a LAN party when UT2003 first came out. LOL. Cost a boat load at the time. :laugh:

    Dang! Hopefully it is something simple. Reset the bios?

    Don't think so that that's the problem since it was missing the battery when I got it (so bios was resetted).. Well, I have dozens of DDR1 memory modules so I can try if it's about memory.. :toast:

    Yep, that would be my next guess. Some older boards are picky about memory. I have had several Asus and MSI boards that were that way.

    Got this card coming soon

    [​IMG]

    It's an AccelGraphics AccelSTAR II, with Permedia 2 chipset and 8 MB SGRAM. My first 3D Labs chipset card. I collect mostly vintage graphics cards and the hardware for testing them.

    It'll probably be a few weeks before I am able to take decent pics myself, so until then I will post pics from eBay when I buy cards :)

    Just bought a couple of original (2064 based) Matrox Millennium. First one has just the VGA port, and from the part number looks like it was made for HP:

    MIL2P/8MB/HP
    [​IMG]

    Second one has another port that I don't recognise

    MGA-MIL/2N

    Can anyone tell me what that 26-pin connector is?

    I think the DB26 was for a breakout cable that had another VGA output along with composite and S-video.

    edit: something similar to this:

    Well, you have a desk, a bottled beverage, an mATX motherboard, some RAM, a couple of processors with IHSs, a processor I can't identify(S462 Athlon?), what I believe is a PCI NIC, three video cards and a Radeon 2900 series. If the pic wasn't taken with a potato, it would be much easier... :p
    What do I win?

    DSC_0207.JPG DSC_0208.JPG
    so yesterday i went out to buy a new one and thought i'd try one last time, ....and to my surprise all 4 sticks worked with the new PSU in :wtf:
    DSC_0210.JPG

    Anyone remember these?

    Just part of the CPU collection I used to have. Never had a 386 board this chip would fit in though. I had almost 2000 different CPUs, but for financial and other reasons had to sell them all. Some, like this chip, I now regret not keeping. I'm now compiling a list of which chips I want to replace for my test rigs (generally the fastest that each motherboard/chipset supports).

    aaaaaaand i was wrong...... again.:banghead:
    apparently the motherboard itself is half dead as i can't boot with more than 2 sticks inside , and as the memory controller is in the CPU this did happen with 2 different CPUs (it would POST with 3 or 4 sticks but it would BSOD in windows)

    oh well guess i'll be on the lookout for another cheap "working" s939 board

    Shoot a PM to @ThE_MaD_ShOt as he may very well have a couple s939 boards available.
