I have a Dolch-esque 386-LCD clone that I'm attempting to resurrect over in this post. At this point, I'm pretty much down to the guess that some of the motherboard traces have been damaged by the battery leak. I'm going to attempt to repair them (I think?) but assuming that goes badly or doesn't work...
I'd love to replace the guts of this thing that pretty easily allows me to use the internal LCD, which has a special ISA video card with the Cirrus Logic GD610/620 chipset. Space is a concern, since this is a luggable, so I need something no bigger than the 330x220mm current DFI-386SX board.
While I'm doing this, I'd love to stay pretty period-accurate. My original intention was to really gut this thing, but I've since fallen in love with the era of hardware and some memories from back in the day and thus would like to start by keeping the LCD, thus the ISA card, this a vintage board & CPU.
