I've been able to either find replacements or repair/rebuild most of the parts (except for PCMCIA cover), and now I have a 701C with AMD X5-133 CPU, 16GB SSD (only 8GB are recognized though) and 64MiB FPM module. Problem is, while system boots fine and recognizes all 64MiB of memory Windows fails to set 16-bit or even 8-bit color mode, it works only with 4-bit color. I've read that the problem is because 64MiB RAM interferes with linear framebuffer used by the Chips & Technology driver, so I'm supposed to load a TP701MEM.SYS driver that I got with my memory module. Problem is, every time I try to load it (in config.sys) I get "TP701MEM.SYS V1.02 (c) Copyright Takeshi ISHIMOTO 2002 ... Not installed [E06]" message on boot.
Any hints on how I can troubleshoot the problem?
