  1. I just picked up a ASUS M5 A97 R2.0 on ebay with a 4 core 4.2GHz processor and ram. Thanks again for the info.
  2. Thank You. That is exactly what I was looking for. Someone with one in their lap that they know works.
  3. Does anyone know of a list of motherboards that support Windows XP that's newer then a Pentium 4?
  4. Any updates? I just discovered this as I have new (to me) XP Pro machine I've setup.
  5. I just found this and will give it a shot on my Windows 98Se machine when I get home. I'm glad someone is working on something like this. I use to code back in the late 90's and early 2000's but I've forgotten all that long ago. I did use VB6 and some C++. I just read everything from the start. I can relate to the family issues. I've been gone for a few years due to my father who has prostate cancer. He passed Sept 2016 and I'm just now getting back into classic computing.
  6. What updates/tweaks/mods are you using also? I didn't think opera 12.02 worked on Windows 98.
  7. Just tried it on windows 98se and it says that it expects a newer version of windows. Upgrade your windows.
  8. It's so sad how true this is. I'd love to have a web browser to just surf the web with... Forum boards, news sites. Just light surfing.
  9. Good to know. Thanks you.
  10. I have a Dell Optiples GX620. Pentium D 3.0ghz, 4gb ram (3.2GB Readable), 128GBssd, Windows XP Pro 32bit. I stuck in a MSI nVidia 210 512mb pci-e video card. It is DirectX 10 ready. Anyway of getting DirectX 10 on Windows Xp? I have 9.0c right now. I did use the forum search and all I found was talk about it and dead links. If this is a dead horse, I'm sorry, I just recently began trying to go back to Windows XP. I'm a bit out of the know..... Thank You.
  11. So what updates in what order should be done to make best use of a WIndows 98SE system now days???
  12. So what would people recommend installing to get the most usefulness with Windows 98SE now days? I have an old Toughbook CF-29 I'm thinking about trying to get back up and running. It has WIndows XP but it is just too slow to use.
  13. I have a host machine running Win 7 Pro 64bit. Installed Virtual PC 2007. Made a virtual machine and installed Windows 98SE. How do I get the networking working for the 98 machine has internet?
  14. Every time I boot my laptop or open the lid my desktop icons are bigger. I know how to use the ctrl and wheel mouse to shrink them back down, but How do i stop this? Windows 7 Pro 64bit
