Re: PC98 system

Oh man, I'm always glad to see more Japanese computers. Aside from a few buying guides and a handful of cursory videos on YouTube I haven't seen much. That thing is super imposing too, very beefy.

Re: Voodoo 5 Troubleshooting Adventures

Just wanted to provide an update on this. So far, none of the flipping of BIOS switches has helped. This is all a big doo-doo mess.

Voodoo 5 Troubleshooting Adventures

Good morning from scenic and foggy northeast Ohio, everyone. I started a Super Socket 7 project and I've been having loads of fun. Perhaps you folks can help me troubleshoot why I can't even get my machines to POST. Primary Machine (New Build, old parts): Thermaltake Toughpower 1000W Gold Gigabyte …
