My Mum's chipped Xbox. Which still works with these exploded caps. Not even my Asus slot 1 motherboard had them fail this badly. And those weren't nichicon caps either.

Another piece of the windows xp build arrived.

its loud

Also this thing was drastically cheaper than the cooler master jet 4, which later died anyway, so let's see if it can match its performance

im still mad about that jet 4


Pro tip, before you reply to an question or topic, answer these three questions:

 

1) Do I actually have an answer for OP at all?

2) Am I giving an answer that is based in multiple reliable source tests and not personal opinion or heresay?

3) Is my answer on topic, clear and concise?

 

If you answered "no" to any of those, close the tab.

Do not give people information you personally think is correct. Source, research and then reply. If you plain and simple don't know what you're talking about, don't talk about it. It's harmful to support questions on forums to be providing people with wrong or misleading information. As well as going off topic from the original question.

i.e. "What B360 motherboard should I buy?"

>someone replies with a PC partpicker list with a ryzen system

Not what was asked.

Was in my parents basement and found my second GPU, my dad's old laptop and some board that says 1978! I know we have some other cools things I'll have to commit to finding some day but this is all for now. Also my mother threw away a very old and valuable Mac computer because it was sitting by the front door for too long 😕

For my first LTT post, here's my contribution:

Trident 1MB VGA card.

 

I don't have any pics or parts from my first "gaming PC", but it was a 286-20 with 2 x 1MB SIPP modules and a 20MB MFM hard drive and a 300 baud modem.  It was bliss.

Just the Photon logo

the p4 is a 3ghz non HT model

 

now I just gotta find the manual for it because I've got no video but it's clearly going past something because the ram comes out of post and it takes a while to shut down

I'd say that's the GPU. Though at least most of the image is there, and the driver is loaded correctly....my Geforce 3/4 (can't remember-tossed it in a draw and left it) is stuck at 4 bit colour, 640x480. With full blown checkerboard artifacting.

I still have an old 8086 PC stashed in my attic too, it was working... (I`ll check when I get a free moment and post pics if it still does).

I`ll probably need to sweep the dust of it first though :)

IMG_0909.JPG

 

Edit:- Apparently not...someone in my household decided to throw it out....🤨

They left the monitor, some old cases and bits of detritus for me...so for the record, here they are:-

(a bit of a come down from a working 8086 but hey-ho, whatever...)

At midnight tonight, one of the items I've been lusting after for a long time, will have the auction end, and I"m feeling good about it.

A Compaq Portable III (pic is an exmaple)

compaqiii.jpg

 

It's highly yellowed, anyone have any experience restoring the yellow to an original colour?

I'm considering (but only considering right now) making it more like those old dirty terminals you see in Fallout games, but I am yet undecided. I may take it to work and see if I can connect it to our network (I'm the IT person here, so I can get away with such silly things)

I still have this thing in a box because I don't know what to do with it. 😅 It's super dusty because my old case didn't have filters on it. 😂

Make sure to put a small fan on that chipset heatsink so it doesn't burn up, because the heatsink is actually insufficient for the wattage used by the GeForce 9100 underneath when used passively! 😮  I'm honestly amazed it's lasted this long.  Before we were into our current product line, we used to sell hundreds of these boards because they kept dying.
