> What surface mount capacitor did you use for the 64 ram card for the sf7.. I did a internet search and it had differnt type of this. the dram i think i could do by sodering it on the board but the surface mount capacitor seems like it would be very difficult to mount on the board..

I used a 0.1uF cap. If you have a friend help you it shouldn't be too hard to solder down the cap. Put it in place, have a friend hold down the middle of it with a small screwdriver or some other tool, you solder both sides.

I'll bet it will work even without adding the bypass cap but try to put it on anyway, it was meant to be there.

> Did you do it yourself or get a friend to do it?

Yeeeooowww! The Dumper, farm work out??? Not likely! Actually I would if I could find somebody better than me that would do it but in this case I did it myself.

Trust me, you'll have more trouble with the ICs.

What are the chances you can make a scan of the PCB (both sides) before you install the new chips? I'd like to see how they connect up this type of dram.
