It's not really a recent find, but something I had an eye out for for a while and literally saved from a dumpster.
It's an old terminal used at my workplace. It was under AC and haven't been turned on I think in the past 20+ years.
But a couple of weeks ago it's time had come to be thrown out.
It was a little dusty, so I gave it a quick cleaning. It was stored under AC which probably saved the motherboard from battery leakage. It's dead anyway so I removed it for safety. The hard drive seems to be dead, but otherwise boots up nicely. I have a 50MB Maxtor or a larger capacity, but maybe less reliable IBM WDA-L80 as a replacement.
Thinking on adding a sound card and a 5.25" disk drive. A coworker offered to sell me an Aztech Sound Galaxy BXII which should probably be a good fit.

If you can dump this bios it'd be nice ! (If you need help, I can give you some tips)
Sure, give your tips.
However I'm in the middle of moving or on a break from it because of the holidays and I left it at my new place so I probably won't do it until at least early January.
No problems ! There are many ways to contact us ^^
To dump the bios it's pretty simple.
Download this archive, put its content on a disk
then run "ROMSAVAT.EXE" and it should generate a file which will contain the bios.
Then send us that file 😀
