    This EIZO card which is Hercules compatible, yet it has it's own suite of modes and supposedly works with VGA monitors

    This Ara ET4000C seems pretty rare (I have loads of ET4000AXs, yet never seen "C" variant before)

Snatched this sealed EXP PCMCIA CD-ROM with built-in sound (Soundnote) from Ebay. 30 dollars shipped. Found it absolutely accidentally. As it was listed under the name «Vintage 1998 PC Portable 8X Speed Multi Media Kit». So if you’re after interesting PCMCIA devices (like me) this one was almost impossible to find.

Here is the 486 that I received, and re-installed MS-DOS 6.22 and WIndows 3.11 on. I'm waiting for my WD90C33-ZZ to arrive for it, and will be replacing the motherboard with an ECS UM4980 later on down the road. The intention is to get this thing running with either my Cx486 DX4-100 or Am5x86-P75. Currently has an i486 SX-25 installed.

For my builds it's "no CF-disks, no Floppy emulators, no modern cases etc.", only the real and authentic stuff whenever possible/sensible/affordable.

Such a handy device to have around. Use mine all the time for updating CF cards used in my retro boxes.

Just bought this laptop I found in the classifieds:

Highscreen LP 3451

Information on this thing is scant, to say the least, but it's supposedly a 12 MHz 286 with 1MB and monochrome LCD, although there's a picture of one on facebook with a colour screen but I'm not holding my breath. According to the owner it doesn't consistently boot which has me worried but for 25€ I'm willing to find out just what exactly the deal is.

The thing is that this baby apparently has 2 ISA slots...

pretty good deal if that includes shipping, better hope that doesn't mean shipped poorly.

Yes, that includes shipping/tax. Hopefully it arrives intact. 🤣

Interesting. Once you receive it, may you please archive the installation diskette(s)? I bought one myself that is only the unit and PCMCIA card with the cable for $24.26 shipped + tax

Sure, will dump the diskettes. In the meanwhile you can try these drivers http://nwserveur.no-ip.org/win3xorg/devices/P … 20S-16/drivers/

Nice cards as usual! Can you post more about the TIGA (if you have drivers and get it running) and about the EIZO Hercules in action?

It will take some time before I will test them.

Eizo MD-B05 card supposedly (info from previous owner) supports 18kHz MDA/Hercules monitors as well as 31kHz VGA analog monitors as it has analog output on pin 4 too. In 18kHz mode it's 132-column card with regular MDA/Hercules modes working as well (but taking only a part of the screen).
Also 1056x348 mode should work although the previous owner had some issues with that.

Some info is available here:

Bunch of crap for 20 USD 2/2 3dfx required repairs as 20-something pins had cold solder joints, but works well now

Which pins, if I may ask? I never knew cold solder joints could be an issue with Voodoo cards..

On this particular card multiple pins on the PixelFX (500-0003-03) chip were loose. On Voodoo 1 and Voodoo 2 cold solder joints (even without physical damage) are a plague. I assume it may be due to low quality solder used and /or not enough experience in mounting such complicated (for this time period) cards and chips being large so any sort of thermal wrapping and so on causes the pins to be ripped of from the PCB. From my experience Diamond Monster and Creative cards are especially on the lower quality side of things and prone to this.

Went to recycling again to spend a few coins. I believe those Forex boards are the ones with no documentation available at all, but they were 5€ a piece so why not?

Found @ local ad site some cool stuff:

3 VLB video cards and a sound card from Aztech. The Diamond Stealth 64 is a bit crusty.

The mobo doesn't post, and being a nfore 4 ultra there is a chance of overcooked chipset.
