John,I took everything out and cleaned it all very carefully. Everything is secure and visually,looking good. I also took the crappy computer apart to get a little perspective on how things should look when they do work. I cleaned that one too, just because it seemed like a good idea. The broken one is still broke and the crappy one still works like crap.(haha)

Run the memory test that I mentioned before - it doesn't require DOS or Windows - and it boots to it's own stuff right off the floppy disk.

If it doesn't run, then we'll start checking some other things out.

Please excuse me if I don't reply for the next couple of days - I'll be away from my computer most of the time until Wednesday evening.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I have the Knack. **  If I haven't replied in 48 hours, please send me a message. My eye problems have recently increased and I'm having difficult reading posts. (23 Nov 2017)FYI - I am completely blind in the right eye and ~30% blind in the left eye.<p>If the eye problems get worse suddenly, I may not be able to respond.If that's the case and help is needed, please PM a staff member for assistance.

Sorry, I haven't been able to try this yet, I've had a lot of work issues. Playing with this computer will have to wait.
Thanks for your help.
