    I do not mean to brag but the flea market in my town is awesome! :D After 7 years I am still amazed of the stuff that can pop up there! Well, it seems that I am Well(er) on my way to having all the tools I need for quite a while. :D No more hot swapping hot tips when I need it. I just have to...

    New HW Found! :D ASUS K7M + AMD 750MHz - busted USB ports. Easy fix. A minor problem at the AGP port. Easy fix. Gigabyte 6VTXE + Celeron 1200 - needs caps and some attention at the AGP port. Easy as pie. ASUS A8N-SLI S939 with PCI-E A64 3200 - in great shape. NOS Kingston 2x32MB SIMM 72 pins...

    Hello, World! :D - Robert B's PC builds - oogle away freely :) - OLD Hardware Emporium

    Do not forget the spit n' polish! :D Yeah the P55 (not P51 Mustang) kind of it is both dead and alive. :D My bet is that the Main Bios is shot so I'll have to take out of the closet the paper clip trick so that the Backup Bios kicks in (probably) to the rescue. :D The board is stuck in a power...

    The Filthy, Rotten, Nasty, Helpdesk-Nightmare picture clubhouse

    This Gigabyte GA-P55-UD6 was dirtier than a 25 year old socket 3 motherboard that I find at the scrappers. :D Good thing that the dust didn't make contact with water as it would've been a lot more challenging to clean. :D I still have to sort the damaged SATA ports but otherwise this high end...

    RobertB's Asus P5K/EPU missing transistor problem

    That would be kind of great but as I live in Europe - Romania, I think that it would be much easier to find a good home for your stuff in the Good Ol' USA. :) To be honest after the flood of HW I got over the last months/years I didn't have time to fix it yet. I changed a few parts back then...

    The floppies are 5.25". I do not own a single 8" floppy yet. The Tandon TM848E are true monsters and they are the "slim" version aka half height! :D One is NOS the other two are missing a few ICs but I plan to restore them and then sell the NOS one. Also I do not have anything to test the 8"...

    I think that my EPROM problems are over, at least for a while. :D 200+ pcs of 16K, 32K, 64K and 128K EPROMS have been rescued. :) DIP 28 DIP 32 DIP 40 plus a few Z80 class CPUs I also found a sealed TANDON TM848E 8" FDD - A true monster! :) I am unable to test the monster as I do not have...

    FRESH LOOT! 1. PC Siemens Nixdorf PCD-3Msx - 386 - It is like a fine jewel.Nicely built and sturdy. A 420MB Conner has a place to call home. :D 2. GA-486SV REV.7 + AMD DX2 80MHz, S3 VLB - battery damage repair - all good. I used a dark green lacquer to cover the traces easily removed with IPA...

    Look what the cat dragged in! :D Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI ROYAL. Now my P4 EE (I might have 4 pcs - I have to check) will have a place to call home. :D This board is heavy and running hot. The NB is an absolute furnace even with active cooling. The CPU cooler is a heavy aluminum monster even for a...
