Hello, I am desperate to get a copy of an os for the mx-2424. I have a smart media card I can mail to whoever can help me out. I have purchased 2 mx-2424se's and both showed up without operating systems loaded and 1 of them with a blown cap or resistor(can't tell with surface mount) on the Pci test right next to the scsi power 1 plug on the mainboard. Anyway, I am trying to finish an album started over 20 years ago and all of my analog transfers are on dvd-ram's. I think I can build 1 good working machine out of what i have and either build the second one up as time permits or use it as a parts machine. But, right now my dilemma is just getting them to boot up. Screens light up, but no characters-I have tried replugging all internal connectors and tried getting viewnet to recognize it as well. I think I am at the limit of my abilities and any help would be appreciated! Btw, I know this is my first post(been lurking along time). I'm sure it won't be my last. So, Hello to all here on the forum and thanks in advance for any help or direction y'all can point me in. Nathan.
