IBM PC XT(AT) 5160
|This one used to belong to
the Open University and was acquired for me by a friend
of mine John. When I first tried it the monitor didn't
work so I tried another EGA one but that didn't work
either, so I tried a VGA card and monitor in it and
managed to get a picture but it didn't boot. So I
installed IBM DOS 5.0 and the Windows that came on some
of the disks that I got with it, this turned out to be
Windows 2.03. Quite obviously this wasn't the Windows
that had previously been installed on it as there was MS
Word on the hard disk and it wouldn't run with this
version of Windows so I have now installed a cut down
Windows 3.1 and that got it sorted.
It turned out that the Hercules EGA graphics card was no good and unfortunately neither was the IBM EGA monitor, so I am now running it on VGA stuff instead. Now all I have got to do is get it to work with both graphics cards in so as to get a parallel port back again.
The keyboard is a heavy IBM 1390136 standard UK QWERTY layout, this is a very clicky positive action keyboard. The mouse is an early Microsoft bus mouse which has a 9 pin mini din connector (similar to PS/2) that plugs into a Microsoft Universal pointing device adapter card.
This is quite a large computer with very little room for any additions, but there is space for another 5.25" floppy disk drive. The majority of the space is taken up by the power supply, a full height 5.25" IBM 20MB hard disk and a full height 360K 5.25" floppy disk drive. It has 2 x 8 bit ISA slots and 6 x 16 bit ISA slots.
Although this is marked on the case as an XT I think it is an AT as it has an AMD N80L286-12/S processor I am not even sure if it is the original motherboard. Memory 640K + 3456K extended all onboard.
Dimensions 19.5" wide x 16"deep x 5.5" high
Weight 31 lbs (14Kg)
