Corrosion doesn't have to drip from the battery- it can travel in the air around it, and even come from other things.

Plus, it depends how it was stored when the battery started leaking.

Can you explain how you use the VGA port as an RGB port as 15KHz to a CRT?
I've wanted to do that for years. The MiSTer really makes that obsolete but it would still be nice to have WinUAE that way....

Doesn't the Furia have more than 8M, like 9.5M or something? I seem to recall you could enable or disable that extra bit and I think my machine had an issue with it.

If you don't have tools or time to diagnose it, just replace the few electrolytic caps on the board and clean up anything they have leaked out. 9/10 times it will fix the problems.

Exactly.

A600/A500/A1000/A2000 uses a 16-bit external data bus and 24-bit address bus.

A1200/A3000/A4000 are native 32-bit designs, or at least hybrid 16/32 in some ways.

It's very similar to that. It has 41256 chips on it, so populated as 2M (sockets). There is an extra set of jumpers in the middle of the card also.

I'll take a quick photo this evening.

Perfect. Better than a 1080/1084. It's one of the "HR/high res" PVM's, which means just finer dot pitch I think.
