I've got a faulty M918 (486) which I am trying to revive. Well, in fact I did, but only with an ISA card. My PCI video card refuses to work - 8 beeps, a weird noise plus 2 beeps.
The PCI card is a basic VGA, it works on a Socket 7 board. Unfortunately I don't have a different one to test.
Just wondering if - besides bad luck - there could be any reason for a PCI video card to not work on a 486 board?
I re-flowed the chipset which had many more-or-less-attached legs. But that did not improve.
(Besides that PCChips are awful boards, I know! 🤣)
