I bought a Mac Color Classic at a PC show and it came with a free LC 575 motherboard in a box. I got around to ordering the two 512k VRAM sticks and I put the board in the Classic. The Classic has Mac OS 8 on it I believe but it lacks a control strip, network control panels, and others. The odd thing is that the System info says "System 7.1" I guess the previous owner had fun with the Mac. I changed the system enabler and the Mac runs fine.
The only minor problem I have is I get some pixels on the screen that like to stay. This is hard to explain so bare with me, it seems like the CRT screen has dead pixels, but when I put the screensaver on everything goes back to normal, but when I move around windows or the mouse some pixels appear where something has moved. It is a bit annoying but I can live with it. Maybe I will try swapping the two VRAM sticks. Anyone know why this would happen?
Thanks for your advice.
Classic Specs if needed: 1mb VRAM, 4mb Built in, 80mb HD, Mac OS 8, Floppy, Ethernet :coolmac:
