I also got the eMachines eTower 366c in the same day, this one's a much happier story. Booted right up the first try without any issue, aside from a dead CMOS battery. I just need to throw in a hard drive and install an OS.

Nice to see a Cyrix rig.

Believe it or not, this is the first time I've been able to find a full Cyrix system that wasn't being sold by an overly optimistic eBay seller with a $200 price tag.

Another card I've been after for awhile to the GPU collection!

Though I've been moving away from this era lately, the opportunity to snag another Triplex card couldn't be left untouched. It joins the GeForce3 Ti and GeForce2 - the Triplex Millennium Silver GeForce4 MX440 Dual Head!

The Compaq Presario 850 turned out to be a 486DX2-50 just like I expected

Beautiful!

... and just like I feared the power supply is stone dead.

That's too bad though. Fixing PSUs is rarely fun.

Yeah, and since it's proprietary and replacements probably aren't available I have to try and fix it.

Trying to search for the part online (197416-001 from this listhttps://web.archive.org/web/19961226053531/ht … e1/pres800.html) show a few places which might still carry refurb stock.

That part number should help, I'll probably be taking my chances on Ebay though in the event the supply is irreparable. But I think the problem is likely something mundane (caps, fuse, maybe a transistor or other similar component) so it probably can be repaired.

That should go good with your black Aopen motherboard.

Dude, your hardware haul is amazing. The black PCB ASUS boards are a nice touch as well.

Great looking mainboard. I like the L2 cache soldered to the mainboard, mainboards of this size normally only have single bank L2 cache. Moreover the srams can't be stolen so easily! 😁
