I just think his answer was a joke. The system is a binary number. 1.075 - 1.100 is binary 0000 1.125 - 1.150 is binary 0001 etc etc until you get to the two that look the same. 1.275 is okay, but the next one (1.325) is the same (and shouldn't be), it should be: 0101, not 0100 like 1.275 is. [=

Anyway, you think in the way of computer freaks.. try something in the likes of totaly not into computers. It's even luck that I found this site. But I like it already. So to me it was a puzzle, not very dificult but I liked it.. Now I'll go and try the other ones

I don't know much about CPU jumper settings (okay, so nothing..), but based on a mirror pattern, the incorrect one (sixth from final) should probably be vid1 23 vid2 12 vid3 23 vid 4 12 or .__. __.. .__. __.. inverse of the sixth from the top left most image... if that makes sense =)

 Posted: Sat Oct 07, 2000 3:52 pm    Post subject: 16 That's easy Has to be 1.325/1.35 Volt, this is the only wrong pic. Should be VID1 on pins 2/3 (1.825/1.85 - 0.400) VID2 on pins 1/2 VID3 on pins 2/3 (1.825/1.85 - 0.100) VID4 on pins 1/2 = 1.325/1.35 If pin moves to right: VID1 lowers the voltage with .400 VID2 lowers the voltage with .200 VID3 lowers the voltage with .100 VID4 lowers the voltage with .050

 Posted: Sun Oct 08, 2000 8:40 am    Post subject: 17 NONSENSE!Thatīs all FALSE!! Here is the CORRECT ANSWER:The voltage needed is 1.325/1.35 Volts and the jumper-positions are:VID4 1,4 VID3 3,4 VID2 1,4 VID1 3,4
