My little retr0bright experience [SUCCESS]

Hi everyone, As I am restoring one of my STE in a custom way, i decided to do a paint job on the body. However, the keyboard looked really yellow. Huge aesthetic problem.

Re: DualTOS assembly accident

Hi again, Exxos, and hi all readers of my adventures :D

It seems my motherboard don't like running outside of its metal shield.
I've put it back inside the shield, closed carefully every locks and she booted fine, currently running GEMBENCH.
Weird, isn't it ?

Re: DualTOS assembly accident

Thank you Exxos, I made some little "progress". I've put back my stock TOS 1.62 chips and the board still throws 4 or 11 bombs I've changed the memory to the stock 4x256Mo >> no change I've put back the factory power supply >> no change I've cleaned again the cpu contacts >> no change I've unplugged...
