Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

I have an extra hdd-led on the 5,25" front plate where I have one of the hard drives. I think I saw a connector on the disk (the 340mb one) for a hdd-led it should be quite easy to fix. I will have a look at it when I replace the cd-rom. The hdd-led on the case works as it supposed to do. After …

Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

1. Nice to know and if I find one it will be perfect in this computer. 2. I will keep an eye open. The only one i found now was about 200 EUR and that is a bit to much... 3. I have an Adaptec AHA 1740 that I can try if I don't find another solution. CD-rom isn't top priority at the moment and I …

Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

Its time to see what has been done from the list I made in the first post. Get to know the hardware better I'm not sure if I know it any better now but I have found some fun stuff and some of its personality. The memory modules that was installed when I got it seems to be for a HP Printer... but it …

Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

OS = Dos 6.22 and WFW 3.11 The installation program I'm reffering to is the setup for the soundcard on the CD I got with it so it should be the original drivers from 1995. Disabling the IDE-port on the card is on the list of things that I should do but I have to figure out how to do it first. As …

Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

1) I recommended to put the 3Com 3C509 into EISA mode, then it will be fully controlled via ECU. 2) Do you use an EISA configuration file for the sound blaster 32? I changed the 3Com-card to use EISA-mode and that seems to work just fine. I don't have any configuration file for the SB32 but it …

Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

@OSkar000 For the SB32 (in DOS), you may try Unisound to check if it detects your card (if it does, the card will be initialized): https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=72553 I did a quick test and after running Unisound it seems to work. I could install the drivers and software. However... i …

Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

Got some work done today and found some new problems! https://i.imgur.com/gTolSgv.jpg First of all, the networking card was a simple IRQ conflict, it didn't like sharing IRQ with the SCSI-card. After running the config utility, 3c5x9cfg.exe and changing to IRQ 10 everything worked great and I could …

Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

Thinking about buying one, it's on my eBay watchlist. Does it have L2 support? From what I can see it seems to have 256k L2 cache installed. Progress is slow on this computer, but I have finally found a SCSI-cable that is long enough to hook up two harddrives and the CD-rom. At the moment I'm stuck …

Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

An EISA graphics card that can do 1600x1200 will be hard to find. I am not even sure, if such a card exists. I have the compaq 1024/E card inside (1MB VRAM as far as I know), it can do 1024x768 256 colours with 60Hz. In my second 486er EISA machine, I have a ATI Graphics Ultra Pro 2MB VRAM, it can …

Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

Not much happening here since I got another project that needs some more attention than this one. More on that later :) I got image files for Dos 6.22 and I found the orignal windows 3.11 installation disks in a box here. Also with Dos 5 and Windows 3.0 and some other programs from that time. …
