VERY NICE TANDY 1000 EX SYSTEM. I need to sell off some of my vintage systems because I have too many.
This system has never been in need of any sort of repairs due to damage or failure of internal components. What you see is original condition. This system was not retrobrited. There is absolutely no yellowing on any of the parts.
I did clean the keyboard, however. No harsh chemicals or abrasives were used. I only use Isopropyl alcohol and a mild dish liquid and water solution. Pull the keys off the keyboard for cleaning.
I used a static-free computer vacuum to clean any dust laying under the keys themselves. I also replaced the cracked and brittle rubber feet on the bottom of the computer. I used Goo-Gone to remove the adhesive residue left over from the old rubber feet and removed any left over Goo-Gone with Isopropyl alcohol and a mild dish liquid and water solution. NO MAGIC ERASER OR OTHER ABRASIVES HAVE EVER BEEN USED. I pulled the original 8MHz 8088 Intel CPU and replaced it with a 10MHz NEC 80186 V20 CPU giving the system between a 20% to 30% performance boost.The original 8088-2 CPU pulled from this system is also included. I installed a new Cybernetic Systems SmartWatch+ module (Y2K compliant).
This clock module allows for the battery to be replaced. A new battery was just installed in the SmartWatch+ module as well. The current date and time is automatically set when the computer is booted up through the AUTOEXEC. 2GB Internal Compact Flash (CF) Hard Drive (MS-DOS 6.22). I used a Monotech XT-CF-Mini XTIDE Controller connected to a Cybernetics Systems PLUS to ISA converter to allow the use of Compact Flash (CF) cards to be used as a hard drive.
Roughly 200MB of the drive has been used with all the software loaded so there is. Of room left for any software you wish to install. I've installed over 100 of the most popular games and software packages in the system so you can get your retro-computing experience on right away.
SIIG JJ-A21012 I/O ISA Card With Dual Serial Ports and Parallel Port. I used a Cybernetic Systems PLUS to ISA converter to allow installation of this card into the system. The card offers the Tandy two serial (COM) ports configured as COM1 (3F8 IRQ4) and COM2 (2F8 IRQ3) and a parallel (LPT) port configured as LPT2 (278 IRQ5). Full documentation for the card's jumpers are included on the CD-ROM if you ever need to reconfigure the card. The card supports SPP, EPP, and ECP parallel port modes.
I tapped the screw holes on the metal brackets to accept standard M3 fine thread computer screws. The installation came out very nice. It looks like the card was actually made for Tandy 1000 EX and HX computers.
New 2 Button Serial Mouse in Box. Also included is a new serial 2 button mouse with its box as well. A mouse driver (CTMOUSE) is loaded when the computer is booted up. The HDM menu system and much of the other software supports the mouse.External 720KB 3.5 Tandy Diskette Drive with Cable. The original box is included and I'll leave the invoice in the sleeve as well.
The original foam inserts in the box are long gone though. Xircom PE3-10BT Ethernet Adapter and Ethernet Cable.
I wrote a custom script that allows you to boot the Tandy into three configurations by issuing DOS commands or using the HDM menu system. This reboots the computer into a non-networking mode. This configuration makes the largest amount of RAM available for games and software programs.
This reboots the computer into an MS LAN Manager network configuration utilizing the NETBEUI (NetBIOS) protocol. The computer identifies itself on the network as.
Drive is created that is shared with a virtual Windows 98 computer's. This reboots the computer with a TCP/IP packet driver installed allowing the use of the mTCP TCP/IP suite of utilities. The IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS server addresses are set up by simply modifying a text file.The custom script I wrote is a batch file. On the Tandy that you can freely view and modify to your needs. In fact, you can use it and the related files on any vintage computer you have to enable networking with a Xircom Ethernet adapter.
If you are comfortable with networking then you'll be able to use this setup right away as you see fit. However, if you are new to DOS based networking. I'm including a CD-ROM with a preconfigured VirtualBox Windows 98 computer to use a bridge between your modern computer and the Tandy. I have created an instruction guide full of screen-shots that walk you through the VitualBox setup process. (I used to be a computer science teacher, this document is very well written).
1 - Installation of VirtualBox on your home computer. 2 - Creating the virtual machine.
3 - Creating the virtual hard drive from the included hard drive image. 4 - Configuring the VirtualBox settings. 5 - Setting up the Windows 98 virtual machine (IP addresses and other network settings). 6 - Configuring the Tandy TCP/IP network addresses. Once set up this is basically how it works.Start the virtual Windows 98 machine on your home computer and let it fully boot. Create a shared folder on your home computer that points to. Power up the Tandy and put it into UNC networking mode. Folder is set up as the.
Now, whenever you put something into the networked folder on your home computer it shows up in the. Vice-verse when you place something in the.Drive of your Tandy it shows up in the folder on your home computer. The virtual machine acts as a bridge between your modern computer and networking standards from the 80's and early 90's.
This allows you to download software for your Tandy from the Internet, move it to the shared folder on your home computer, and have it instantly available for installation on the. Also, you can back up the Tandy's entire hard drive to the.Drive for safe storage on the virtual machine or your home computer, or both! The included CD-ROM includes folders relating to networking that contain. MS LAN Manager for DOS. The installation disks and patches/upgrades. The complete 07-05-2015 version of the mTCP TCP/IP suite of utilities. Complete documentation in PDF form.
Xircom PE3-10BT network adapter drivers and documentation. I tried to cover every scenario in the guide I created but I'm sure I may have missed one or two (especially when dealing with Windows 10 Spyware Edition). You won't be disappointed with this computer system. I have taken great care to make sure everything works 100%. I will guarantee that this system works for you upon arrival.If anything does not work, or you feel is not as I stated, let me know and. I want you to be happy with your system for may years to come. Please don't hesitate to ask! How did you connect your Tandy 1000 to a VGA monitor?
I use a Monotech EternalCRT MDA/CGA/EGA to VGA Converter box. How do you set the date and time in the Smartwatch+? I wrote a script to walk you through the process (in the HDM menu). Or, if you wish to do it manually just do the following. At the DOS prompt and enter the current date (MM-DD-YYYY).
At the DOS prompt and enter the current time (HH:MM:SS). Does the NEC V20 CPU run at 10MHz? No, the CPU runs at 7.16MHz as set by the Tandy 1000's clock crystal. You get a 30% boost in efficiency/speed though because the V20 CPU is actually an 80186. Would you perform these upgrades on my Tandy 1000 EX/HX?
Yes, but it's not cheap. You'll need to consider. Monotech XT-CF-Mini CF Card Interface.
Two Cybernetic Systems 1000EX/HX Plus to ISA Adapters. My labor to perform upgrades/install software. Xircom Ethernet Adapters are almost impossible to find any longer. When you do find them they are usually.I've been in the PC business for over 30 years. I'm wise to all the scams.
All of the included documentation and software can be seen in the pictures provided. A CD-ROM containing the following. Drivers and documentation for the mouse, Smartwatch+, and Xircom Ethernet Adapter.
MS LAN Manager for DOS and mTCP TPI/IP Networking Suite and Documentation. Documentation for the PLUS to ISA converters, SIIG ISA I/O card settings, Smartwatch+, Xircom PE3-10BT, and the XT-CF-Mini CF Card Interface. The latest version of VirtualBox and a preconfigured Windows 98 virtual hard drive to use with it configured for networking with your Tandy. That I wrote available in both MS Word and PDF format that walks you through the process of getting your Tandy networked to your home computer.
A three page guide titled. That I wrote available in both MS Word and PDF format that reminds you how to get networking started in UNC and TCP modes. Since this system has had an NEC V20 CPU upgrade it's safe to use DOS 4.01 on it. With that being said I would still avoid DOS 4.01 on any Tandy system (known to corrupt the BIOS in 8088/8086 Tandy systems).
Again, since a V20 CPU has been installed it's possible to upgrade the BIOS in the Monotech XTIDE controller to take advantage of the 80186 instruction set and therefore speed up hard drive access (See Monotech's web site for more details). You will need 8.5GB of free hard drive space on your home computer to set up the VirtualBox Windows 98 machine if you plan to use it. Become the envy of all your vintage computer enthusiast friends!
