Thanks, but it is not included of course :-D
I don't think my CSPPC/Mediator/Voodoo setup would be happy if I sold the monitor...

Give it away free with the motherboard then ;-)

I will, if the auction ends at over 300 UKP!!! :-D

just a reminder to let you know that there is now less than 24 hours before my auction is ending. See the item here. (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5178630562)

Too bad the RTC does not work. It seems a lot of A4000 mobos suffer this problem with those damn leaky, furry NiCad Batteries!!! Arrghh.... :banana:

A4000D motherboards suffer from the following flaws that eventually pop up due to age:
- Leaky battery
- Leaky audio capacitors
- Extra-fragile simm sockets
To find a motherboard nowadays that doesn't at least suffer from one fault from the above mentioned ones is very difficult. :-(
Also, the chips on-board are mostly soldered to the board (except the roms and sometimes the buster chip), so if one goes bad you need to desolder it in order to repair it (e.g. like that CIA chip from a picture in the auction).

To my luck I got two fully working motherboards in excelent condition. No battery leakage and complete simm sockets, and no problem playing audio using Paula :-)
I could have had three, but the battery doesn't work, even though there has been no battery leakage at all :-(

So people, now there is only 3 hours left of the auction. Go and bid; go and bid wild! :-D
As said, if the auctions closes at over 300 UKP the monitor is included :-)
