Re: Purchased a RiscPC from ebay and need help on how to get it working

Remove the battery immediately it will eat up your RISC-PC. Removing now is more important than having a replacement ready. You can use a small box to house two batteries or use a replacement Varta.

Would it be possible to make a picture of the whole motherboard I can then have a look at the A5000's I have if I have a Issue 1 board. And I would say scoop is a Dutch spelled.
