if you want to save your eyes, check http://www.badcap.net about board repair.

they have a repair service and kits for various boards. using students as
they are, repair cost is low and may well be worth it.

i will not argue that point. i started repairing cards in s100 days. when
'ibm clone' can out, i continued until it go too cheap to by a new card.

i still do mainboard, but that has almost gotten to be a thing of past.
even mainboards are dropping in price to where cpu and memory are main

asian's sure know how to make it hard this days to make a living. i am not
against union labor in manufacturing, but they have drained this country
down to where revelations is going to 'right on'.

peace out.
