  1. Source: https://www.theminimalists.com/screens/ Relatable, isn't it?
  2. For anyone that might be interested in the possibility to continue using partially defective RAM, I have one such module in my laptop. I figured from Memtest86 results (addresses) that the faulty parts are somewhere near the end, somewhere in its last 40 megabytes. There's just one 2 GB stick. So one can tell the OS to not use the last 40 MB by running this in the Command Prompt: bcdedit /set {current} removememory 40 If there's 2x 1 GB sticks for instance and those 40 MB would be in the one in the first slot, it would be a good idea to swap their places as cutting whole 1064 MB isn't d
  3. It might, but definitely not on vanilla Windows 98. No need to (at least not for me), it's more like a passing curiosity. Haven't had a Win9x compatible computer in over a decade.
  4. Is there anything like f.lux for 98? Supposedly some old f.lux build from 2016 works on it with KernelEx.
  5. If your motherboard's BIOS actually supports ACPI, Windows should have been installed by invoking the setup program in win98/win9x folder on the installation CD from the command line like: setup /p j You can't avoid the message to turn off the computer if your hardware lacks ACPI support because such computer can't be turned off by software.
  6. Aye, but I haven't found the archive of RTSS. Maybe I didn't look hard enough. Does it try to connect every time even if you set the longest allowed checking interval? If not: I noticed Config file under Profiles sub-folder has a timestamp under LastUpdateCheck, unix epoch time in seconds in hexadecimal format with a 'h' suffix. Maybe setting it to the distant future date would help, eg. FFFFFFFFh or at least 7FFFFFFFh.
  7. MSI Afterburner displaying some stats via RTSS on a D3D11 game and a D3D8 game on Windows 8.1. RTSS settings were left at defaults. Windows 8.1 is at the December 2017 patch level + .NET Framework 4.8 (KB4486105). .NET likely doesn't matter in this case unless .NET based game is involved. More information would be needed to solve the OP's problem. Sometimes the module name where it crashed gives a hint, but it's not necessarily where the main issue resides. The crash log can be found in Event Viewer (Windows Logs->System) or in Action Center (Maintenance->View reliability hist
  8. MSI Afterburner with RivaTuner Statistics Server works fine on my Windows 8.1 installation, so it seems OP's issue can't be Windows version alone. It is yet to be tried, but an older version of RivaTuner Statistics Server's RTSSHooks.dll bundled with MSI Afterburner 4.6.2 doesn't depend on K32GetProcessMemoryInfo function. I only dug through to the DLL with 7-Zip to check its dependencies with PE Viewer. Found the installer on Filehorse. My theory is that they wanted the world to forget about the old systems at some point, so "supported" would take
  9. From what I could gather, CsEnabled setting doesn't work since 2004, but some users reported success with PlatformAoAcOverride on 20H2. But what do I know, my HW only knows real S3 sleep mode. Obviously tinkering with Windows settings won't help if the issue is at the lower level.
  10. Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 98 both have all 4 functions mentioned in the post above.
  11. Would any of these help? If not for the laptop in question, maybe it's still of use on another piece of hardware. New registry setting to disable modern standby: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Power] "PlatformAoAcOverride"=dword:00000000 EFI program that patches ACPI tables to disable modern standby: https://github.com/ElectronicElephant/Modern-Standby-Byby
  12. https://microg.org/ And what were the results? I figured I have 3 apps that depend on those services and could potentially continue to use them without Google's stuff, assuming microG satisfies their dependencies. There are lots of issues opened on its GitHub page.
  13. Indifferent when it comes to code names. I don't mind if it has them, but so far, version number tells me more than the codename...though for software updated very frequently, those lose meaning as well over time, at least for me, I don't have the mental capacity to keep up.
  14. Assuming there aren't any other changes that would require modifying extension's code, it should be enough.
