GD5434 v1.23b ROM hangs on Advanced/EV BIOS

I just wanted to report another issue that has been found. On the CL GD5434 ROM v1.23b, it causes a hang condition on the Advanced/EV BIOS, but not on the 430vx Award BIOS.

ROM file case sensitivty

I was looking at the Packard Bell 570 and 520r, and found a problem with regarding to Linux (and other UNIX) systems. For example in mem.c on line 851, there is a function to open one of the rom files for read: f = romfopen("pb570/1007by0r.bio", "rb"); In this case, and probably others, some of thes...

PCem title image question

I have been curious as to what application is being shown on the monitor for the website title image. It looks to be an IBM 5150 but I can't quite make out what the application on the screen might be. Just a curiosity since I have looked at it a number of times. Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: Packard Bell Legend 760 Supreme (PB410A)

Thanks for having a look. I have a datasheet for the HT216-32 but it was not hard to find. It's a VLB chip as well. I haven't heard of ACC either until I looked at the board.

Re: Packard Bell Legend 760 Supreme (PB410A)

For sure. Actually, right after that picture was taken, I checked the voltage on it and it's dead flat, and then I desoldered it. So it's good now. The power supply though is a complete mess. https://imgur.com/a/S9Eov I'm hoping the motherboard is still functional. I will rebuild the power supply an...

Re: Packard Bell Legend 760 Supreme (PB410A)

No problem. I'll clean the board tomorrow and take a picture. This site has information about that board: http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/pb/mb/410.htm The VGA controller is an Headland HT216-32. The ROM for this is in the BIOS ROM as well. From what I can tell the IDE and FDC ports seem to be routed to...

Packard Bell Legend 760 Supreme (PB410A)

I have extracted the BIOS contents of my Packard Bell Legend 760 Supreme with board model PB410A (486 SX 25 with Overdrive socket). SYS V1.01.20E, VGA V10.05.03J. I saw another Packard Bell machine added in the commit log and I was wondering if any others were wanted/needed. I would actually like to...
