ST Keyboard IC's needed

Re: CF card + HDDRIVER 10.02 in Falcon

You might be making this harder then you need too. The Falcon supports two IDE type drives. I use two IDE drives in my Falcon. One in 'Master' internal CF card. The other is a 'slave' SD card that slides in/out from the back. The internal has many partitions, and they are all TOS. It boots from C on...

Re: SD vs. CF memory cards for IDE interface

One thing I have noticed is that all the current SD adapters have the SD slot oriented 90' to the pins. So it can not be easily made to have the SD card removable from the back of the case. Also, for Falcon's, there is the 44 to 40 pin issue. Yes there are adapters, but then you have to split the 5V...

What might be causing this crash screen 1040STf

What might be causing this crash boot screen in one of my 1040STf's. This machine has always done this since I received it a couple months ago. I have reseated all the socketed IC's it has. suggestions? Oh, this is a black and white screen, on a 1224 color monitor.

Re: Which games could be possible on our Ataris today ?

ST's are made for MindCraft. 1st versions, not that 'expandable' craziness they have now, would work great! A slim version on an 800 matches up well. A 130XE upgraded version might be fun too! Most games that are not FPS can still be implemented on some version of ST. Many games on 'smart' (ya right...

Re: 2 versions of SMD-340, need help

I cut my losses and purchased one from Exxos. It costs a bit more, but you know that it will work correctly.
Getting FD off ebay is like rolling the dice in a crap shoot. You might get lucky, but chances are that you will not.

Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

All the Dallas IC's I got have dead battery. I did some Googling, and looking in here. I now know that they all on the Earth are probably dead. They have not made them in many years. Not true and not true. Both my ATARI Falcon's have original working DALLAS batteries. And DALLAS still make pin comp...

Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

Here is my Dallas 'Upgrade'. I used this video as a guide. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdlSfqto_0o I'm pretty sure I got the polarity right. If I got it wrong the falcon would not boot? or worse? But this Dallas just might be bad in other ways besides the battery. I have 2 more Dallas IC I will ...
