I was working on my PC Chips M912 again this evening getting ready to drop a VLB IO card in there. The system was working 100% at the weekend but opened her up, installed the card, powered up to no display and lots of beeps. So removed the card powered on again but still no display. The beeps changed to 1 solid followed by 3 short. The weird thing is that the system continues to boot.
M912 motherboard modded with 512kb of real cache.
16MB of 72pin simms
S3 VLB graphics
generic crystal sound card
generic network card
PT607G IO card
The other VLB IO card I tried is an ST300ALI.
I've tried removing the sound card and network card, changed the system memory and even removed the 1mb ram expansion from the S3. None of this makes any difference. If I change out to another ISA video card (not vlb) the system boots without a beep but I get no display but I'm not sure if this card works or not.
