Mega touch jade edition
« on: October 07, 2018, 06:28:52 pm »
Purchased a jade edition pretty cheap.  Replaced the mobo battery and now it says no hard drive found.  I assume itís shot.  Any advice for repairs?

I have the jade subtraction version. Think that'd work for you?

But seriously, all you need to do is get a new drive and install the software.  Or there's a reputable seller on eBay right now that sells pre-installed drives for cheap.

Too be honest, Iíve been working on my Pga golf arcade cabinet so I put this mega touch on the back burner.  Now that I have my cabinet up and online I can focus more on this thing.  Not only is the hard drive not working....itís also not even there lol.  I did put a bid on eBay.  Thanks for the link

Bad motherboard. Seen this exact situation many times. Your machine will run the dos versions but crash on Linux. Not sure why

Fred's a good guy. Ask for diamond or emerald versions.

with those versions, it would require a hard drive to match correct?
