Hi all,
I'm afraid I need some help, I need for as little as possible an A4000 CPU card plus a keyboard and mouse.
But I must confess funds are tight, so any help would be greatly appreciated


cheers, JuvUK

It's an American Layout Juzzer & it's a bit grubby with dis-colouration.

That should help with the price :rofl3

I've got a 3640 that was :censored: up before I got it by the previous owner desoldering the caps and taking nearly all the solder pads off :mad:

I was going to have a go at repairing it when I find the time :nuts:

Yours if you want it Juvvie :thumbsup:

@JuvUK

If you get this board, I'll fix up the Cap problems for you as I did for scrappysphinx's board by using alternative pad points for the capacitors.. Won't be SMD though..

Postage only mate - by the time I repaired it - it would cost me more in time than what I could sell it for. I've got another spare for myself :D

Version 3.0 - see piccy attached.

If TC is in agreement - I could post direct to him :thumbsup:

@TC

To be honest I've no idea. The board arrived in its present state with me just cleaning off some of the c**p that was left on the board from its desolder caps murder!!!

I was told it had been working prior to that but haven't got round to fixing it to test it :oops:

If you'd just abriviated to "nylons" this would have been a perfect quote for the 2010 quote contest, where's your head at mate?? :-( :lol:

No mate, sorry. I haven't even got round to sorting a suitable box yet & might have to make one.

I'll try & get it done for the weekend, but I can't promise. :|

No need to worry about the CPU card spacers as the board has 3 of them installed.

I think I know where a spare 4th one is, but I have already wrapped it all up so I will stick it in a jiffy bag with first post =D

Juz. I'm going to withdraw my offer of the US A4K Keyboard. It is not as healthy as I first thought & I have an A1200 Tower planned which means it will suffice until I can acquire a better one. I have three A1200 Accelerators here that need to be put to use.

Sorry to mess you around me old fruit. I just wasn't thinking far enough ahead. :(

HugZ,

Kin

Just to Let JuvUK & Davideo know.

I collected the card from our local Royal Fail depot today...Wonderfully packed.

Initial observations do indeed show pads missing for the capacitors but I've had this issue before & will be finding alternative connection points using std caps not smd types...

Incidentally.............The Xtal is socketed..... If the card boots up we may be looking at a spot of overclocking here too Justin :D


TC :thumbsup:
