  1. It wasn't anything. PROBLEMCHYLD, I respect you well. You are a man of God and you've done a lot of community work for us all (protocol fix, Windows 98 Service Pack, and even modifying a driver for me). I appreciate your hard work. Nothing will change that.
  2. Hello. A little while back, a friendly samaritan (not naming him because he did not give me permission to give out his name) had compiled a AIO installer for KernelEx + Jumper's updates. Would anyone mind testing it? I am currently testing the software myself at the moment! https://drive.google.com/file/d/16wXXC5yL_dq_CWIJMfw-PaDWnTVEo09_/view?usp=sharing
  3. I use faststone screen capture 6.3. It's the last freeware version, and works on Windows 98 PCs too. Doesn't work on NT 4 though.
  4. Even if I cannot use Windows XP for modern activities (websites that require the newest browser), I'm definitely never getting rid of XP. It's a great OS and isn't overly bloated like Windows 10. So, I'll be sure XP stays on the older machines with Linux, and Windows 10 can stay on the hardware XP isn't compatible with. Not completely XP-related, but I'm annoyed how much Microsoft has bloated Office 365 and Visual Studio. Both have become stupidly slow for simple tasks on a i5 haswell PC from 2015.
  5. You should try providing the names of the drivers required (chipset name, sound driver model, ethernet or wireless card, etc.). Try providing hardware IDs of unknown devices as well. Google is your friend with those. Because Intel HD Graphics 4000 are Ivy Bridge, you might be able to install Windows XP completely in theory. But this varies with computer brands, I think. A I would recommend is snappy driver installer (SDI). It's a bit of a gamble, but it's helped me a lot when I experimented with Windows XP on a Haswell.
  6. It's sad to see legacy support dropped yet again for legacy hardware. Although I agree PC's older than 2005 are pretty slow, cutting them off will make it hard for those who can't afford new PCs...
  7. I found one that provides docx on Vanilla Windows 2000: LibreOffice 2000. The only reason I do not desire to install the extended kernel on one machine is because it's a very dated laptop that can only use up to 1gb of ram; super slow.
  8. During my searches, I've found a .docx word writer for Windows 2000. Is it possible to obtain one for Windows 9x? I prefer an application that can natively open the documents instead of require a manual conversion! I've also found an epub reader that works on Windows 2000. Too bad Windows 98's life support ended about 8 years before epub.
  9. We need to find the last working versions of digital art software: -Autodesk -MediBang Paint Pro
  10. There are multiple possible issues: 1) The ACPI might prevent you from properly installing Windows Vista on that machine. Perhaps Dell used a different ACPI version for that laptop, but an AIO Dell of mine from 2013 can't even install Windows 7 because of the ACPI stuff. On the win-raid forums, there are experimental Windows XP ACPI files, but I'm not sure whether they are compatible with Windows Vista; no one appears to have tried. 2) As mentioned on a top post, HAL Timer is probably the issue that causes Windows Vista to act funky on these newer boards. 3) Looking at the drive
  11. Oh, sure! Next time, just privately message me! Here you go!
  12. Hello MSFN, I've found a great deal on this PC model, and find that it would fit my needs perfectly to test demanding software on a Windows XP installation. However, I realized the chipset provided by Dell lacks a Windows XP driver. This model has a Q87 chipset and uses Intel HD 4600 Graphics. I've located the graphics here: But, I have yet to find any answers regarding whether the video drivers will work fine. I've previously tested HD 4600 Drivers for Windows XP from the snappy driver installer pack (on my AIO 2015 HP), BUT found numerous glitches. The PC would have momentar
  13. Hello MSFN, I was wondering if there is a workaround to copying files from newer Windows/MacOS/Linux machines that use characters unavailable on Windows 9x. For example, a file with specific symbols (like hearts?) and fonts unavailable on Windows 9x cannot be copied to the machine. Is there a workaround to fix this besides having to rename the file on a modern PC? I like to use my old 9x PC to backup a few files. Same issue occurs when using a virtual PC and attempting to copy a file with an "illegal" name to the Windows 95/98/ME machine. Thank you!
  14. I am using an Intel chipset. I've never had access to an AMD chipset. The laptop was also a Dell.
