Time for a new motherboard me thinks. And so after
sourcing a suitable candidate from the States I fitted
the new board on 17th April 2005, and she now works fine

Click to see how I changed the A4000D motherboard

Having fully restored the A4000 above to it's former
glory, I added a new hard drive, operating system .. plus
a new graphics and sound card... Plus a fast serial port
and SCSI controller. My goodness, what a lucky Amiga

This A4000d/040 came fully populated and had this
very sexy fan mounted on the port plate.. My first
job was to Install a Picasso II card and update the
operating system to OS3.9

Answer regarding the mystery IDE connector...

It's a NoIDE hardware hack, to disable the IDE port
(useful when used with a SCSI controller to avoid the
30 sec boot delay)...Thanks Framiga Amiga Org
