i posted a few topics ago that i was having some probs installing os3.9
so i thought my mainboard died
after e few testing i found out that without the blizzard it runs without problems
i even did buy some new memory to test if thats not the faulty thing
so now i need or a repair or a new 1
who has 1 for sale? or who repairs the blizzard?

1 - what is your blizzard ? blizzard 1230 MKIV in your signature ?
2 - What exactly happens when you install your card ? what leads you to believe it's dead ?

well at least i think its dead cause it gets my amiga resetting and giving weird errors while loading os 3.1 or 3.9
its the 030 blizzard
is ther any program to run a test with it?

Perhaps if you tell us what the errors are, we might be able to help.

before you throw it out, i suggest giving it a good clean with a q-tip and cleaning fluid. I recently bought a 060 which I thought was broken, continual crashes, etc. I gave all the contacts on the 060 and the board and my amiga expansion port a good clean with the fluid and it's been working perfectly for the last 4 months.
if it is broken i still wouldnt throw it. have it repaired or sell it as broken on ebay. someone will be able to fix it and you will feel good about saving a rare amiga item which someone else can breath life into. good luck!
