Re: ISA 3Com EtherLink III 3C509B-TPO Repeatedly fails self test, "Vital EEPROM," error.

Interesting, thanks for the information. I'm also using an Etherlink III card, but was lucky so far. Does disabling Shadow Memory help, maybe? Like a BIOS shadow? I can try it, I'll start with the video BIOS shadowing first which I enabled a little while back to get a small performance boost out of …

Re: ISA 3Com EtherLink III 3C509B-TPO Repeatedly fails self test, "Vital EEPROM," error.

I've seen this happen several times to people on vcfed with the same card. Just about every time it is an addressing conflict. But I tried every single address on the other computer- I can't believe that every single address on that computer is being used when I can add other cards to the system ( …

Re: ISA 3Com EtherLink III 3C509B-TPO Repeatedly fails self test, "Vital EEPROM," error.

I have also tried this NIC in a completely different computer, and am getting the same EEPROM Vital Data test failure. I'm guessing this means the EEPROM is somehow bad? I've made sure to clean the contacts on the card so that dirt isn't interfering, I just don't understand how it up and died one …

ISA 3Com EtherLink III 3C509B-TPO Repeatedly fails self test, "Vital EEPROM," error.

I got the sound card for my Pentium 200 machine working, swell- now the NIC card isn't working. If it's not one thing, it's the other, and I'm losing my sanity. When I run the self-test in the 3Com NIC utility, which is for this model of card, I double checked, it works for a few seconds and says …

Re: 486DX2-66 project update

I actually quite liked the aesthetics of the IBM case, but it had: The aforementioned chunk missing. The entirety of the case was coated in a thin, borderline non-removable layer of automotive residue vile chemical pollutant disgust that caused it to smell of chemical vapor toxic evaporation mixed …

Re: 486DX2-66 project update

Not sure how the high and mighty IBM parts feel about being in a PB case but to the causal observer it looks like a standard PC who wont realise what a Frankenstein it really is. Or in other words it looks like a nice tidy job :) Butchered IBM parts in a Packard Bell case sounds like the ultimate …
