bin\rom files on offer

I recently took posession of a bag of proms ranging from 27c256 through to 39sf020 in dip package, & about 20 plcc late chips... I usually erase chips before storing them but got to wondering if perhaps any of the roms on them might be sought after, there's about 8 x 486 eproms the rest are 586\686....

Most of the motherboards I've worked on with onboard sound, the way to
disable it is usually with a jumper setting on the board itself...
You may need to tell us what board you have so we can advise on what
can be done...

UHF Radio eprom programming.

Probably not the forum to post this on, but hoped that someone here may lead me in the right direction, but, I had a friend leave a 27C256 chip with me in the hope that I may be able to add some extra channels to the chip, it currently only has one, so he says, & was hoping that I may be able to wor...

I have 3 different 314.bin sources... They can't all be bad files, right? Is the 314.bin attributes read only.? I sometimes get...

Hopefully someone can figure out where I went wrong. If you can do that or supply me with the actual bios file, I'll be in your debt. Sorry if this isn't in the right forum, btw.
Download your 3.21 rom here.. :wink:

Unless the multimeter had a capacitor tester on it, I really don't know how else you could, other than pulling them one by one & testing them the way I posted above, that is - to induce a small voltage into them making sure corect polarity when connecting, & checking to see if they hold the charge.....

Do any of the electrolytic capacitors look bulged on top instead of flat, even just remotely bulged.? I'd still suspect bad capacitors as CP suggested.. I've lost count on how many boards I've revived by replacing most of the capacitors on them, & I'm just a novice playing with this stuff for fun......

That's an i...
