Sun Ultra 10
|Sun Ultra 10 computer from 1998
||Ultra SPARC-IIi @ 440MHz
||1 20GB IDE
||1 3-1/2" 1.44MB
||2 serial, 1 parallel, keyboard, 10/100BaseT ethernet, onboard video, audio (mic in, line in, line out, headphone out)
||This system had a firmware password set, when I got it. The consensus is
to power on the system until the video starts, pull the NVRAM chip
to get control, then re-install the NVRAM while still powered up to run a
reset procedure on the NVRAM. Ugly, but it works. The system originally
came with 256MB (4-64MB DIMMs), a 300MHz CPU and a Creator 3D Series 3
FFB+. I upgraded it to 1GB RAM, a 440MHz CPU and Elite3D m3 frame buffer.
The NVRAM battery will eventually die on all of these systems, and I replaced
this one in January, 2014. The NVRAM was available from Mouser, M48T58Y-70PC1
(Mouser part 511-M48T58Y70PC1).
