I just rescued a nice hp 712/80 today. Alas, the led on the front blinks
continually, which I've read means there is a problem with the mainboard.
At least the price was right (free). Does anyone have a replacement CPU
board for this, or one with a blown PS, etc, that I could get for cheap??
I'd love to get this thing up and running NeXTstep.............
