    I'll check tonigh.


    Seems like someone is getting rid of his excess hardware, this morning I passed by the same dumpster and found another PC. The case had no panels, it was a slot 1 board with no AGP slot, missing heatsinks and some bulging caps BUT it had a Gigabyte slotket :eek: :rockout: and a Sony IDE DVD burner :p Took those with me, pictures later.

    I'm going to check tomorrow too :D

    Awesome old hardware UART!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Added ya to the original post man. Welcome to the ole nostalgic club. :toast:


    I actually have an Asus Slotket with a K6-2 400 I think. Man, now I wonder where in the hell that got to. :p I will have to try and find that. The Asus brand was like the Gigabyte and held their motherboard color. In Asus' case it was that Gold color there older boards were.

    Cheers:toast:!

    Absolutely! You got it! Was lucky to have such a name in real life. Good ol' Paw must've known
    that I'll be on a chip diet when I get older:rolleyes: so when my friends ask: "You Art?"
    I say: "YES, yes I am.":D
    As for the 486'es above, I'm passionate about this particular chip over the 386 & have several more...

    Did a "semi-thorough" cleanup, took a blower to them and you wouldn't believe the amount of dust that came out :eek: anyway...PC1
    Intel D845WN (Year 2000 socket mpga478)
    [​IMG]
    The CPU
    [​IMG]
    RAM:256MB SDRAM, what i think is a RivaTNT2 64, Creative ModemBlaster and a Realtek Ethernet
    [​IMG]
    Looks like old WD's
    [​IMG]
    The first time i've seen a samsung PSU
    [​IMG]

    PC2, appears to be an IBM 2170
    [​IMG]
    And Guess what, an AMD K6-2 450 :laugh: my second one
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    OK so i tested them and PC 2 "IBM" POSTed fine and working so just needs an HDD and OS, but PC 1 wouldn't POST,
    it didn't beep even with no RAM so the first thing i suspect is the CPU but the CPU does get warm as i think dead CPU's don't get warm??.
    i could be wrong as its midnight right now and i have a headache and can't think straight and going to bed, feel free to leave suggestion for troubleshooting it :toast:

    Could be a bad power supply also. Pull the motherboard and look at the back side for any burnt looking area's as well,.

    Oh man, I remember those SiS 530 boards. That IGP was practically worthless for anything lol. Used the same chip with mine as well, and the system ended up dying in the early 2000s by the time I knew anything about computers. Had a Matsonic motherboard with integrated LAN and modem risers which was rather cool, but I liked the P3 500MHz/440BX/TNT2 m64 Gateway I got next. I basically had free/hand me down systems until I bought my first HP laptop in 2007.

    Took it apart last night and gave it a thorough cleaning and re installed everything correctly and it lives!!! [ although it made me stay up till 4am x_x]
    I also found out that the reset button was stuck on the "on" position probably causing it not to POST, either this was the problem or last time i didn't install the GPU correctly, anyway both of them are fully functional now :toast:
    i guess i'm going to need new cases for both too :ohwell:.
