130XE os rom problems

Postby lips2k15 » Sun Aug 06, 2017 4:20 pm

Hi guys and girls, I am trying to restore a 130xe that I had given to me - its issue was that it had had it OS rom removed so when powered on all i get is a dark red/maroon coloured screen... I purchased a replacement and fitted it in the the chip socket on the motherboard but still the same. The previous owner is now telling me that it used to have a flash rom in there and some resistors that they took out to reuse the the flash chip but they couldnt remember the arrangement so does anybody know whats going on here?
