There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. The experience completely turned me off SIS. The AT power supply voltages are also in okay as I checked them. This site hosts no abandonware. The one defective memory module was the reason why the computer didn’t start. Otherwise it doesn’t work.

Didn’t matter which video card I used. I think one of the main reasons I never put it together again after I had moved and had everything stores in boxes was because the old harddrive I used in that rig was just so damned loud!

I did play some games on it, but I really can’t remember if it had any particular issues that weren’t because of the semi-randomness with which this system was put together 98SE was autopatched iirc, harddrive was suspended DIY-style, can’t remember what sound solution I used.
If it had been very unstable, I probably would’ve remembered sp79, but I suppose these could be troublesome in certain configurations. Return to General Old Hardware.
This site hosts no abandonware. Only rebooting would make it change hue. There are problems with the motherboard and have not found the reason. I have heard similar experiences from other people and actually f it was the usual case with those chips. The one defective memory module was the reason why the computer didn’t start.

If you want a videeo 7 board i would look for an intel tx or hx board. Haven’t come across any as of yet Capacitors look okay and I have not found any other defects either. This would make it good for running some of the weirder Cyrix chips or just vdeo overclocking of Pentiums.
I haven’t deliberately owned another of that vintage or newer SIS board since even though I heard later chipsets were okay. I don’t remember anything about the floppy issue, but I do remember having problems with the video output. This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA.
Please advice if you have experience of similar problems. For the most of the time, the screen is black when powering on, but sometimes it manages to videk. I don’t remember specifically if it was flickering or a color issue or what exactly, but it was some kind of problem like that. I only dealt with 2 and not this model, but I found the socket 7 SIS sp997 with chipset integrated video to be very flaky and unstable even if you did not use the integrated video and used an add-in card.
Opinions here may or may not be different but to me it is not a bad board.

IIRC some ram was dedicated to the on-board video even with it disabled. You can teach a man to fish and feed him for life, but if he can’t handle sushi you must also teach him to cook. Its not like components found in trash after 20 years in rain dont still work flawlessly. Anyway, it still might be interesting to have as most others AT s7 boards were those plain i?
I’m going to have a look tomorrow on a Asus SPV motherboard and asking for opinions. The asue completely vdeo me off SIS.
Is it worth buying this one? Could the motherboard be faulty?
