Re: What extremely rare (non-prototype) computers do you wish you could find?

SX64s and Kaypros are probably the most common of those non-x86 luggables.

A rare machine I'd like to find is an Apple Workgroup Server 9150. Modified Quadra 950 case with a PPC heart, and since there's no PM9100 equivalent it's the only way to get that case design.

Re: No graphics out from Indigo2

I think for right now I'm just going to focus on replacing the graphics board.

I did notice at least one of the two boards is warped, I don't know if that would cause it to not work but it certainly could.

Re: No graphics out from Indigo2

It's a Seagate Hawk model ST31200N. All I have on the side is a small L-shaped ribbon cable that connects between a six-pin header on the drive and a rectangular black connector wired to the drive sled.

Re: WTB-Indigo2 Stuff

I actually purchased the sleds I need from another Nekochan member and a CD drive off eBay that I'm hoping will work, but I'll keep you in mind if the CD drive isn't good!

Re: No graphics out from Indigo2

There actually are no jumpers on the hard disk, I checked. It's just Molex and SCSI 50 pin. I took some pictures of the video board I removed from the machine in hopes that someone can help me identify it. I'm pretty sure it's a XZ or Newport board. I'm obviously going to need either this or whateve...

Re: WTB-Indigo2 Stuff

Oh I don't plan on throwing away any old proprietary PSUs I have to replace.

Though honestly I'd rather get one I have rebuilt (I just don't have the inclination for that sort of thing) than buy another one.

Dragon Maid is a nice bright comedy show, but I need to catch up.

Re: WTB-Indigo2 Stuff

The way I see it, if I buy a graphics board (especially a slightly better one) and it turns out the PSU is at fault, I'll still have a graphics board.

Replacing the PSU wouldn't guarantee the current graphics board would work again...

Re: WTB-Indigo2 Stuff

I don't smell anything when the machine is running (and I'm familiar with that fishy capacitor smell) so I don't think it's the PSU. It's a R4400 system so it's pre-Impact.

Re: WTB-Indigo2 Stuff

God I hope it isn't the motherboard...

All I know is that the graphics board causes the hard disk to not work, as it spins up when the graphics board isn't installed. That tells me at the very least that I need a different graphics board.

Re: WTB-Indigo2 Stuff

Well it looks like I might not need a CPU board. What I'll need instead is a graphics board compatible with the IP22 (?) motherboard and backplane.
