Off road thunder PC
#258532 - 06/28/11 03:54 AM


Anyone have a break down of the internal PC for an off road thunder? The power expansion out the PC has a 2 pin black and white connector at the bottom does this get connected to the motherboard anywhere it is just dangling.

Also is there a way to test the pci video card in a regular PC?

Got a project that way to many people have already thought they new what they were doing.

Personally i'm guessing MB/cpu as that seems most common, but would like to verify the video card.

Also I assume the VGA should go to another board mounted to the side of the unit, right now someone had it going from the PC straight to the monitor and this has to be wrong as I found a connector dangling that looked like the edge connection to the monitor from the side board.

Any help / details (ie memory etc) / would be very appreciated. Is the only security the chip on the video card?

It's all standard PC componants. If I managed to get it to partially boot on a Pentium 2 board which isn't the original, I can't imagine anything is custom. I was only limited in that I have no Voodoo cards.

Just plug it into a PCI slot without any other graphics cards and test it out.

If the system still works with these wires dangling, then they most likely won't be needed. And as long as the screen was 31khz, there's no issue with having the monitor directly connected. If I remember, thatt "edge" like connector is just an IDE with power for other devices, unused.

You should really look for the manuals.
