AHEAD VGA-102-1M jumper settings

Postby keropi » 2017-3-20 @ 00:22

Hiya!

A 286/16 setup I just got came with this VGA:

An AHEAD VGA-102-1M , AVGA , V5000 card. SInce the setup came with a B/W monitor it was jumpered for one (left-most jumper on the jumper block at the upper-left part of the card, with the jumper ON even on a color monitor the picture was b/w) and it makes me wonder what the other jumpers do. I tried to find more info but I could not find anything useful.
Any ideas/clues? :blush:
TIA!

I have a videocard like that ! It allows to run a 20 mhz 286 a lot faster than any other "common" videoadapters) Even Wolf 3d and the Spear of Destiny are playable on a 20-286 with that card...)

It seems too slow in my 286/16 , using a WDC90C30 or 5429 is noticeable faster. Maybe it needs more than 256kb or vram.

I also have one of these cards, but I don't have drivers nor manuals for it and I never messed with the jumpers.

Does someone have the drivers or manuals for this video card?
If yes, could you please upload them in the VOGONS Driver Library?
Thank you very much.

Here are the jumper settings that my card had when I got it and these give out a beautiful VGA. :blush:
