:evil:

I thought I would take a look to see what 30pin simms were installed in my Amstrad MegaPC and found this!

I can see in one area a track has lifted!

I am off to remove the battery, any advice after that. Was going to clean the board with vinegar but am worried I might break more tracks

Re: Battery Damage - New Victim

Well, I have actually repaired the damage but I think the unit has an issue with the IDE controller, hence my post in the Wanted Forums. The megadrive side works a treat but the PC side is going to take a bit of work to get working :(
