  1. Earlier in the week someone I knew was getting rid of an old ZEOS 486, so I asked if I could have it. Here it is:

    And here are some more shots:

    The rest are here.

    From what I can tell this thing is more powerful than my other 486, but the thing won't start. Upon turning on the power I get three really long beeps, a few short ones, and then it goes silent. I'm not sure if there is supposed to be some kind of special cable for that weird second input on the PSU, so I've been looking around for a manual on the internets.

    Here are known specs I got from just looking into the case:
    Intel 486DX (Unknown speed)
    16MB RAM
    Sound Blaster CT2230
    Diamond Computer Systems SpeedStar24 (Video Card)

    tl;dr: I got a giant 486 tower that weighs like 40 pounds.

      If ECC checking is turned on by the CMOS, a good first step would be to reset it. But yeah, having a full manual with error codes and everything would be nicer. Usually, they are a couple hours of googling away, at least if you are not willing to pay.

      Been doing some research and it looks like ZEOS ended up merging with MPC Corporation in 1995, which went defunct in 2008. I got really close to getting manuals, but the Internet Archive didn't have the .pdf files archived.

      They're still online, but I didn't see your motherboard amongst them.
