  1. 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.
  2. We need to find the last working versions of digital art software: -Autodesk -MediBang Paint Pro
  3. 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
  4. Oh, sure! Next time, just privately message me! Here you go!
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. I am using an Intel chipset. I've never had access to an AMD chipset. The laptop was also a Dell.
  8. BWC has a dual-core patch...perhaps test if that will fix the bug?
  9. Trust me, just because I can install Windows 9x on a laptop and setup things, and maybe find the proper softwares, my experience with understanding the architecture or even compiling software is very, very limited. xD Also, the site you linked me to confirms it's incompatible with Windows ME...
  10. Below is an experience of a physical installation only on 8xx chipsets: I've only experienced this on Windows 98, I think???? I've found Windows 98SE isn't as friend with newer hardware compared to Windows ME. Perhaps give ME a try as a last resort; my Dell laptop's explorer.exe keeps crashing with Windows 98SE, but works just fine with ME.
  11. Hey, I'm a pretty big newbie at this, so I am wondering if it could be possible for you to provide a version with a GUI? The compiled version provided here lacks a skins folder, so I can't simply drag-and-drop one of the available skins on the website.
  12. Hey MSFN, I've obtained a very low-end laptop with a limit of 1gb of ram, so I am hoping to figure out if I can get NT 4.0 running on this little device. I have tried installing a NT 4.0 SP1 installation, but am currently having a few issues that are preventing me from updating or even installing drivers: CD drive does not appear to work under NT (says wrong function), lack of native USB support, and partitioning. I am hoping to install Windows NT 4.0 for the fastest experience; the installation alone was lightening fast. In theory, I could put Windows ME on this laptop, but I alread
  13. No, you simply apply the INF6 files to hard disks in device manager.
  14. Hmmm, after trying to reinstall Windows ME, I've come across and issue that is preventing me from doing so: After installing the INF chipset drivers by lonecrusader, the OS' resources are stuck conflicting. Attempting to change the resources ends up in a "disk write error" and does not proceed with changing the settings. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
