Re: Onyx 10000 deskside keyboard issues

it was indeed that front "IO4 filter secondary" board. upon swapping it out the keyboard works once again.

This is actually a pretty good looking place for something to break, looks simple enough that with volt meter it can be troubleshooted and repaired.

Re: Onyx 10000 deskside keyboard issues

Alright. Some progress. I pulled the memory board out of the onyx terminator rack and put it in the deskside. No more memory errors at bootup. over 1500MB of memory compared to 256mb with the other board. a big improvement. I also pulled out the io4 controller from the terminator rack and installed ...

Re: Onyx 10000 deskside

I did not have any luck with it. I should be free to try again in a day or so. I had both the ac lights light up green, but the power good lights never lit up, i am unsure if that is normal operation. no fans spinning up or any kind of indication of power up. Its an ordeal to get it moved, and the o...

Maintaining Hardware / fesability of keeping hardware running

Sgi hardware has been a big thing for me. I learned about the hardware while it was still in its prime and i was still in school, and decided i really wanted to get some of the gear that was top notch at the time. I can't even begin to gauge how much time has been spent working on or thinking about ...

Upon restart the reyboard no longer beeps at bootup, and says something along the lines of keyboard error. I do not have the correct cable to connect the machine to my desktop and capt...

Looking for PDF documentation For power Animator 9.0

I have a complete copy of power animator 9.0 with all the documentation. I actually had power animator before I had the books, which was quite difficult to work with as there was a lot i did not know how to use. As of right now i have all the books it was supposed to come with, which is much better,...

Re: Looking for good software For PPC macs

Ill take a look into adobe cs2 products, thanks. I do have maya 6 for mac. It installed but is giving me licence issues, ill have to look into it more later. I was unaware that the ram could be upgraded or that the hard drive that shipped with it is so slow. Memory can be upgraded easily enough, if ...

I picked up a weekend job at the scrapyard I frequent in the hopes that I could pick up some SGI or Dec gear before it gets ruined. This past weekend i managed instead to find some mac stuff.Looks like a whole school cleared out all their computer gear. A bunch of PPC mac g4 laptops. I picked up two...

Re: FS: O2000/onyx2 wheel base

I posted looking for one of these a while back for my onyx 2. I had no luck finding one. I imagine shipping it to the US would be quite expensive. Contact me as a last resort if you cant find a buyer and ill look into what it would cost to ship.

Re: WANTED: Indy

I picked up the two I have for $80 + shipping off Craigslist. They came with some nice matching external tape and cd drive enclosures.

They are not too expensive in my opinion. I would not pay more than $50-100 myself, they are pretty basic compared to the other bigger machines.

Re: Wanted: Octane

I may have one I can sell to you, i have many spares. I can get back to you with the specs. You mentioned an interest in ibm gear as well, would a ibm as/400 with a terminal be of interest to you? Shipping on the last octane ran around $100. If you have interest in the as/400, local pickup or freigh...
