Upgrades

  • Cache : 8K built into the Intel 80486SL chip, not upgradeable.
  • Maths Co-Processor : The 486SL chip used in this system DOES NOT offer math co-processor support. This system does not have an upgrade socket. Currently no overdrive processor is available for this system.
  • RAM : The main board has one memory module socket that takes a proprietary SIPP, either 4/8/16MB. Warning : If the Power Button is set to "Rest/Resume" in CMOS Setup, then pressing the power button does NOT turn off the computer, it just puts it in "Rest" mode. There is still power flowing in the computer, EVEN IF THE BATTERY PACK IS REMOVED. If a memory upgrade, or any service, is performed on the system when it is in this state, damage could occur. The Power Button needs to be set to "Power On/Off" in CMOS Setup before service is performed.
  • Video Memory : 256KB Video Memory, not upgradeable.
