Default Debug Card Availabilty

Sorry, not sure if this is the correct place to post on this subject.
I am looking for the SOYO TechAid Debug PCI card. Does anyone know of a source for this card? I have looked and the normal resellers are either out of stock or is not available. Does anyone use this? Can anyone suggest a similar product that they actually use? Just trying to build up my work bench to make myself more efficient.

The vendors I use don't seem to have it in stock either. I would recommend an alternative card, but I do not use one. From what I have heard in the past, they don't work that well.

Anyone having luck with them?

I have the SOYO TechAid Debug PCI card and I'm not impressed with it. Seems to act like it is supposed to but sometimes you cannot do much with the info.

They are on ebay if you really want one:

Thanks for the reply to my post. I guess I will add this towards the bottom of my wish list for equipment. I was not sure if it was effective in troubleshooting or not.

Buy it anyway. I have so many little weird things here that I could open a museum. The POST card may never give you an exact reason something is wrong, but pop it in and turn it on and if you see nothing you get a better idea of the state of the mobo.

Look at what I bought today:



Its little things you put on the end of those jumpers on the motherboard when you are hooking up leds, speakers, etc.

I had a pack of these and lost most of them so I bought two more sets today.

You can test a mobo out of a chassis and also test a chassis to see if the leds or switches are functional.

Cost about $12-20 for a pack. Last forever (unless you lose them). Saves time in guessing about crap.

I spend money to make money. Stupid little things like these and post cards and all kinds of oddball connectors, adaptors, etc... are investments, not just purchases.
