I vacuumed the motherboard off, and located one chip that had half popped out - just reseated it, and it's been working great ever since. I haven't found a PET yet that was really dead - there was always something simple I could do to get them going again. -- Robin Harbron firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.tbaytel.net/macbeth
