Dave,

Yeap. First thing I tried. Checked both computers working without SGC, both same noise & no output with the SGC.

Ok. Send it. I’ll see if it’s something repairable.

Dave,

I'm going to poke it a few times first. Check for shorts etc.

Where the heck is the RTC battery?

Yes.

If you put a Gold Card in front of you so the gold heatsink is in the top left corner facing left:

Battery is red SAFT 40LF220 just above the CPU, just left of RAM, with four legs into four gold turned pin sockets. + is bottom left corner.

If you put a Super Gold Card in front of you so the gold heatsink is in the top left corner, facing left:

Battery is red SAFT 40LF220 to right of RAM, above EPROM and 74HCT244, left of MM58274, in four gold turned pins covering up the MC68EC020FE25. + is lost to the sands of time.
