I am new to building computers and I thought I'd be ambitious and decided to build my husband's dream computer, a 486!
I am building with a(n) :
- Intel 486 Dx4 at 33 MHz x 3
- (2)x4 MB of SIMMs (EDO RAM) which is 8 MB total of EDO RAM
- Abit AB-PB4 Rev 1.2 motherboard
- new power supply
I have been fiddling with the computer and I was able to get into the BIOs. When I got into the BIOs it still wouldn't boot after a restart and would hang. However, I was trying to make the system work and played around with the jumpers and floppy drive. Now the system doesn't display anything anymore. I have been using a motherboard manual and I am looking to install a sound card, I/O controller card, and a video card. The video card is a PCI (ET 6000).
Any guidance would greatly be appreciated! I have attached a picture here 😀 and I'll be more than happy to attach more pictures. 😀
