hmmm... that is very interesting to know.
I have a VX mobo, P1 200MMX, what is the HD limit you say.. 8.4?

is this for all brands... mine was iPC , which disappeared a few years ago.
As usual with these funny name companies of course!

I don't recall who made the mobo, I'd have to check it later on.

I think that the best solution is to replace the NiMH battery with another NiMH. Check the voltage (V) and capacity (mAH) of the old one and search for something like that. The old batteries are in a very bad condition & we can hardly see any thing printed on them . They are round & sort of like C ...

Three seperate networked PCs, one VNC server, two VNC clients. A bit like PcAnywhere, but this one is freeware. This seems not to be what you are looking for. I get ya , but this is not what I am aiming for. I mean to use only one PC with 3 fold outputs for everything ; multi display, multi sound; ...

Notebook PSU/mobile power solution

My borthers' old plasma notebook pc (8 years old) has reached its end of life sort of. So we decided to upgrade all its hardware ourselves raher than spend a lot of money on an expensive "brand name". So we were able to find almost all the needed replacement components including the mobo with one ex...

If you only need to share the desktop with other users, get VNC and a network. I am afraid I am not sure what "desktop" are you referring to; a Desktop PC or the Windows Desktop. I assume it was the first. I have extra VGA cards, extra 10/base-t cards, extra modems, sound cards, and of course USB, ...

I am looking for a home-made solution to hook multiple keyboards (users) to the same workstation which has multidisplay /multi-vga cards enabled (at the same time not switching) . I know there are companies that sell expensive cards to do this , but these are just sound/vga cards with some expensive...

No there is no power ; only dimmly lit LEDs on the keyboard, and I mean the LED light is hardly noticable unless I cover it under my hand while looking. Where do I find the fuse; or is this part of a PSU problem (ATX). by the way ; why is the mouse working if there isn't enough voltage ... just curi...

PS2 DIN socket: Mouse working , Keyboard dead

I have an old Pentium 1 (200mhz) mobo made by Intel. After taking my PC with me when I travelled a few years ago it seems that some thing had happened to the PS2 Socket while the PC was in cargo. And ever since I have not been able to use a PS2 keyboard with it not even in DOS. I bought several keyb...

OK, by generic I meant something for a similar or same "Shuttle" mobo without the "Creative" changes; not for other mobos, I just assume it should work ... it seems I am mistaken.
