What EPROMs are they? I also noticed some visible corruption over the past couple of times I've booted, in the form of a dot underneath the ASCII character '7'. Do you have pictures in your thread? EDIT: Eh, forget it. his comment is here

All rights reserved. In theory you could JUST run 640x480x24 but it probably just isn't quite enough. Now that I think about it, it's more likely the inconsistent bits are 0 than 1, since UV erasure converts all the bits to 1s.

Again, it's at least good enough to run, and I'm not seeing any visible corruption on screen while using it. 21102 EDIT: I managed to find the DOS software for my jmetal88October 19th, 2014, 07:48 AMI found a generic BIOS here, although it's for a PCI card and not a VLB card: http://www.vgamuseum.info/index.php/component/content/article/185-s3-vision-864 It's not exactly the same, but it did allow EDIT: Removed the attachment. But at this point I'm willing to look at a dump of ANY revision of the BIOS if anyone has it to send to me.

I may post the file later. I've got a blank EPROM of the proper type I can burn the result to in order to test when I'm done. I just figured out why Diamond removed the 16M color mode from the INI file. read this article Palcal's card: Diamond Stealth 64 DRAM rev.B3Diamond Stealth 64 DRAM rev.B3 Diamond Stealth 64 DRAM rev.B3Diamond Stealth 64 DRAM rev.B3 Additional Info Made by: S3 Codename: 86C864 P Bus: PCI Memory

  • Not good. :( So, I turned shadow RAM back on and kept rebooting until my '7's looked good again and copied down a different result here: 21099 Now I either need
  • That one accepted the file with no trouble, all the bits programmed, and now it's in a stable state reading back the same thing every time.
  • It changes less when I dump it via DEBUG rather than via the EPROM burner, but it still changes.

So, here's today's dump of the BIOS, which is hopefully 'good'. Thanks! It looks like they've simply omitted the setting from the INI file for the 1-Meg version of the card.

Second, the differing bit was low on today's and high on yesterday's, and it shows up in the middle of an otherwise long sequence of low bits, so it would seem this content Powered by vBulletin Version 4.2.3 Copyright © 2017 vBulletin Solutions, Inc. I found an older version of the driver with the 16M color mode still in the INI file and it causes a segmentation fault with the 1 MB version of the Just asked in for sale thread if they are of any interest, or does the gold recycling beckon like so much of this stuff.

We'll see in 20 minutes or so if it's programmed the EPROM correctly.

All rights reserved. I don't want to say the burner is bad when I only have one EPROM I can test writing to, anyway. I might have just found the chip.

jmetal88October 20th, 2014, 08:19 AMSo, I managed to fix my broken motherboard.

I just did a visual inspection of the file and it's actually missing a large section. I hope it's not damaged. Less vram usage = higher resolution and 24 bit color just doesn't gain much on an old system. jmetal88October 21st, 2014, 06:10 PMHere's the 'two in a row, what I think is probably good' BIOS dump.

I might be able to fix the files myself. Looks like it just failed to copy any of the 'iffy' data, which is why it matched twice. I just saved another dump of the BIOS today that only differs from yesterday's by one bit. check over here I get a nice text display out of the Stealth 64 as the board tries to boot up, but things aren't configured correctly yet so I get a lot of errors

So apparently the README was written back when the first versions of the driver were written, which erroneously supported a 16M color mode on the 1 MB cards and just never I guess I'll try it with the maximum programming time the burner will allow, at this point, and if that doesn't work, maybe I should order a new EPROM. The thing I'm concerned about (and I hate mentioning it because it seems like such a bad idea in hindsight) is that I tried to make a homemade UV EPROM eraser The mode was dropped from the INI file so people wouldn't get segmentation faults by selecting it, but never actually removed from the driver or the README describing the driver (and

A dump from a known good chip would probably still help out.

smeezekittyOctober 26th, 2014, 02:47 PMIts not that surprising you couldn't run 24 bit color with only 1 MB VRAM. It hooks up via an RS-232 serial port and only accepts files in Intel hex format uploaded at 1200 baud. So I guess now I'll either wait until I can get another dump to compare it with or until I can test it with a known working motherboard and CPU. jmetal88October 25th, 2014, 10:38 AMAlright, the video card is in good shape!

But I'll make a couple more dumps of the chip and see which way the bits read back more often, I guess. I've also tried the version 1.37 drivers, and those just seem to crash Windows 3.1. I have a suitable (albeit old) EPROM burner I can use to burn myself a new one, but of course I'd need a dump of the chip before I can do At some point, years ago, I apparently decided I needed the 28-pin EPROM socket off the board to use in something else I was working on.
