Well I guess you can make a topic for that board too ^^

Well, I think I'll give up on making 486 PC because it seems I'm too unlucky for it

It can be all sorts of things ... a mistake, a bent pin, a defect ... We can't say anything without seeing the board 😀

have you tried the POST card with it as well ?

Made another post about that, and the POST card shows nothing, I mean '----'

bake it in oven, it fixed few old cards for me. I know it sounds scary, but it works

It was a hard work, but I've finally adopted that case to accept standard parts. It turned out to be a little sleeper PC because I got a good offer for 486DX2 -66. Also RAM that was in Vectra was working.

I still think that is very nice case even today.

I wish it had CPU speed display with turbo button. I think it would look even more cool.
