Question about Intel DG31PR Motherboard

2 Answers

Upgrading Motherboard I have a SUN SPARCstation 5 and going to get a FIC motherboard for it and replace the SUN motherboard with the FIC. The casing is nice and small, my main consern is the PCI cards. This desktop is small and thin like my IBM Netvista but thinner. I'm going to place a CD/RW/DVD-ROM in where the SCSI CD-ROM Drive is and put in a EIDE Hard Drive where the SCSI Hard Drive goes. Just fixing this up for my friend thats getting a apartment with me and would like to fix this computer up for him to play wow "World of World Craft" on. And I know it would be easier to just buy a desktop, but no fun in that. It also would be neet seeing a old 1980's SUN SPARCstation 5 with a Intel Core 2 Duo processor. But just need help and PCI Cards with this.

    Also I have a DELL Optiplex GX150 that i'm selling to a guy and if he doesn't buy it then he can just use that and I'll get a Pentium 4 DELL motherboard for it from a GX270, But the guy said he'll buy it later if he don't forget about it. really if he buys it he buys it if not then not. I'll just fix the SUN up for him then.

    Are you wanting to buy the Spar off me?

    It comes with 2 sticks of RAM unknown of size but can handle up to 256MB Max and I have the VGA Adapter, comes with basic CD-ROM Drive, No SCSI Hard Drive, No Keyboard. Desktop Powers on and shows a quick Error Message saying No Keyboard found and screen shuts off. This thing is heavy So shipping will cost around $20 if still wanting it.

    I only know about IBM ThinkPad laptops and repair them and sometimes IBM NetVista Desktops.

This won't work.

The Sun uses a very proprietary power supply, won't connect to your new mainboard. PCI cards won't clear, and nothing will line up.

Save the pizzabox, and give this to someone who can use it!!

Also, the sparcstation is a 1990s machine,

    This is more akin to putting an NES cover on an XBOX. Dunno how, dunno why, and I really don't see it working. Just give me the sparc to add to my sparcstack!

    No man, I own 2 sparcstation 5s, a Sun Ultra 2 creator 3d, and a Sun Blade 100.



    I'm just saying, you sound very new to teh computer world.

    Get this thing working -- you'll want a Sun diaplay or a multisynch monitor that can deal with sun's WIERD refresh rate. I use an old SGI monitor; that seems to work fine.



    You can learn Solaris on this thing; and REALLY get to know computers; if you're brave enough!!

Hi,

I have looked on the FIC website but they do not have a manual available.

I would recommend contacting FIC directly for this manual.
