Re: Acorn 3000 4mb Ram Expansion

That's a shame . . . I've just checked the service manual. It details a 1Mb to 2Mb upgrade only!

From memory, I don't believe so.

However, there are sometimes links on the board to differentiate between 1M and 4M versions.
Wouldn't indicate there would be something to change?? Or are they 'passive' model identification?

I'll drop him a line and see how he's fixed . . .

While were in the subject of the UPURS, Martin. Will your CAD package output a DFX of the board outline and component position? I'm almost ready to start the Case - having now decided how I'm going to fix it :mrgreen:

Re: P.R.E.S. AP5 - Original and Re-Design

What's actually needed is the ACP ADFS E00 with the Hard Drive code put back in place, IDE code added, keeping Page at E00. So will need to use the Bank Switching, on the AP5, to gain the extra memory. The RAM overlay is there already . . . Oh! And JGH :roll: =D>
