I have a 386 mobo with ATX to AT converter cable, and for a while it worked fine. Then last week I got eight beeps when booting which is the AMI bios code for no video card recognized. So I tried reseating the cards and occasionally it would boot. Sometimes I would hear it counting the ram and booting fine but the screen was black. The only way I can get it to boot every time is to only use 8 bit isa cards. As soon as I put a 16bit io card or video card, it fails everytime.
Should I be looking to buy a AT p8 p9 style psu or maybe just build my own converter cable that can do the -5v rail?
