Been using the VGA out, never gotShould still get a splash screen on bios… are you using VGA or DVI out?
Sorry, meant DVI. Yeah getting 15khz out when I boot off the stock drive and dongle (using the cards VGA port, not tried using a DVI to VGA adapter. Will give that a shot this afternoon). Working on my test bench and Vewlix. But with no drive, or my currently prepared multi drive, I get no video signal at all.By default the Type X Graphics card will output 480i (15Khz res) over the VGA port and 480P (31Khz res) over the DVI port. There is no HDMI port.
So the VGA port is really for older cabinets that don't support 31K resolution.
if you want to run on a Vewlix over VGA then you'll wan to buy a DVI-I to VGA adapter and hook that up on the DVI port of the graphics card. Most modern displays WONT work with the 480i signal from the VGA port
Yeah, no worries... I'll try another drive setup. Think I have some older SATA SSDs in the closet. And yes, I've been running VGA to DVI via an OSSC. Although my old Viewsonic 4:3 LCD on my workbench seems to handle the output well enough without a scaler.
Yeah... had a hell of a time clearing the ground pins on the capacitors due to the large ground plane pulling heat away. I've got some "chipquik" like @rtw listed, but hand't thought to try it. Would be hard to apply in this case (only ever used it on surface mounted components before I got a hot air rework station). Was able to pull the capacitors using my Hako desoldering gun, but every time the ground pin hole would be blocked preventing inserting the replacement.I gave up trying to recap these after the first attempt. More than enough tries for me. Really thick boards, needs lots of heat and giant globs of flux... very messy work. Pico PSU sounds like a good replacement for these boards with dead PSUs, due to the odd sizing of the OEM piece.
Make sure you're in a well-ventilated area or get a extractor fan!
