    Question whats this? and how do i wire it up to a psu?

    well, i got these from a friend, as far as i can tell it is a P2 slot single board computer and a backplain (no, im not sure thats the right backplane, are they universal?) anyway, could anyone give me some information on them, or more specifically, how would you wire them up to a power supply? and what type of power supply you need? it looks AT

    (the pictures are all of the same thing, and are clickable thumbnails)



    thanks in advance!

    Looks like it needs an old PC-AT style power supply and keyboard.

    Can't see an actual CPU in those photos, but the plug in board seems to have memory sockets on it so I presume there is one on there. Any photos of that?

    If you need to spend any money to get that going, then unless you run a museum I would suggest spending 60 quid on a mini-itx board instead. Much smaller, and probably more powerful.

    yeah that defenantly requires an AT style psu remeber to put the connector in the right way round.

    Any chance of a pic of the mainboard, as it looks very non standard even for its age I'm guessing early 97?
