It is almost certainly *not* possible to alter Vcc from the EPROM reader - that's why I suggested checking it first. If it's a bit on the low side, it might be worth investigating why it isn't 5.00V on the dot. Also, if you were going to alter it, that would be something you'd have to do external to your existing EPROM reader. I never meant to suggest it was a trivial task, just something that might help. If it were me doing it, I'd rig up a stacked connector and just not pass Vcc from the EPROM reader up to the chip - I'd give it 5.00V to 5.25V, say, from an external adjustable power supply, ignoring what the EPROM reader provides. As long as there's a common ground, the circuit shouldn't care. It's not a worry-free operation. It's more of a last-ditch effort. Fiddling with the power rail could lead to fried hardware, so my suggestion was "drastic measures", not a requirement to try. > If the chip itself has a bit error all > over it, it may be reason enough for the board to crash on boot-up, > resulting in no display? That certainly could be reason enough. -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
