Can be helpful for the standard x86...but not the orginal Amigas (no beeps there)....:)

I was just looking at power supply failures -- not too helpful for Amiga. On my A4000T, I've had an issue where i got a weird keyboard repeating issue or sometimes the keyboard just dies. And it ended up twice over the years, that the plastic AT power connector was burned (or even slightly melted) and the actual connector soldered on the mobo was oxidated. Only way to solve was to put a new connector on the mobo and get a new AT power supply.

Yup, the power supply site doesn't cover all things... Few weeks ago a computer didn't boot. Neither a power supply issue, nor a broken motherboard issue, nor... The BIOS battery had run out of energy and this special type of board didn't like that...

Yeah, wonder if anyone has done one for the Classic machines (e.g. covering the various screen error colours, swapping CIAs etc). I'd started to write one here ages ago but never had the expertise to get very far. Closest I found online just now was this chart which indicates which chips may be dodgy for a given hardware fault.

BTW no post about troubleshooting Amigas is complete without the obligatory Check realtime clock batteries for leakage before it's too late!

PowerPC machines (generally) don't beep either.

Praise seitan.
