First post, by bjwil1991
Here's the backstory about the computer: my brother and I went to a few thrift stores and sitting on a shelf was a computer that was built in the 1990's. I asked how much it is and they said $10 (cash only), and I couldn't say no, so I bought the system and took it home with me and placed it in the trunk of the minivan we had at the time and put it into the trunk of my car that had no brakes (used for storage in the meantime).
I took some pictures of the computer itself while it was in the trunk (from June of 2020):
Battery (leaked a bit):
The motherboard (front side):
Does it POST?
Yes, it does.
More photos coming up later (trying to not insert a lot at a time) for the upgrades, features, and other items.
The only repair this board had was the trace that got damaged by the leaked battery and no other damage either (got lucky, unlike a board that was beyond repairs and the other that I have doesn't POST still, but it'll get the repairs it needs).
