Hi, I am trying to get this board running again. I got it in the condition as shown on the picture with some ICs missing. Will care about BIOS, KBC and cache later. I think critical are the two which are labeled
For the F521 I have the exact replacement.
All these ICs need indeed to be populated, I have found several pictures of complete boards.
For the "FCT240" I have a "SN74HCT240N" as spare.
When I insert these 2 ICs I observe that the Reset-light on the POST card is "on" all the time.
It gets off after removing the SN74HCT240N.
So my question is if the SN74HCT240N is an incompatible replacement? Does it make sense to order a FCT240? Or do I have to look somewhere else for the cause..?
