The inactive A590
So what has gone wrong ? No drive light.
Let's have a look.
This 590 has been very well behaved
Cables all connected and so the power
Sadly had to drill out one of the|
screws to release the bottom plate.. Happens !!
Board looks fine.. But what do I know.
Quite elegant in the styling.. So retro
Sadly still no hard drive activity
And nothing showing up on SysInfo
Time for a cuppa tea and an epiphany....
FIXED IT !!
And the light re-appears like magic
Clara is back along with my Workbench
As is SID
Back to BASICs
That's not Tetris
So how did I get the drive to re-appear
And give me back my orange light
The trick is not to slide the DIP
switches so they are all off. You
need at least one active and on. I
must have slid the number one down
when I was moving the A590. Man I wish
all problems were that easy to solve
Onwards.. nuther cuppa first
