  1. Google removes "View Image" button

    I noticed, too. Legally I suppose I can see why...but yes, it's annoying that its gone.
  2. Windows XP Spotter (the club)

    Sadly this year the school I go to upgraded from Windows 7 to 10. However all (they don't have many) of the school's laptops and Netbooks run XP Professional still. I finally got a picture, I had known that they were on XP for a while. This one specifically Is a Core 2 Duo HP laptop, hooked to a TV. Also the local DMV runs XP (No Picture for this one)
  3. Gpu for 250w psu?

    I had one on a P4... You can do slightly better without bottlenecking but for your needs its perfect. IF you have a PCIe x16 slot, that is.
  4. Laptop stops when closing the cover

    I suspect when you close the lid the laptop may be overheating, because it doesn't go to sleep. There isn't good ventilation with the lid shut. The switch that makes it know when its closed could be broken... but more likely a program is preventing sleep. can you manually put it to sleep from the start menu or a hotkey? http://www.tomsitpro.com/articles/windows-8.1-sleep-hibernation-settings,2-737-3.html also make sure all your drivers are installed. (I read your issue wrong)
  5. IE 8 in 2018?

    (Sorry if there's a clarity issue here, Its growing on me that there likely is...sorry...) I think he might mean did you install the updates listed on the page he linked to. Specifically these updates have been released after the end of Vinilla XP support. Find Them Here: http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Home.aspx The Office ones are only needed if you use the Compatibility Pack to open DOCX files on Office versions older than 2007 ALSO: You might need MSI v4.5: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8483
  6. Used to point to MSN.com, (DEFINATELY should have mentioned that.) but now it goes to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/errorpages, in IE, at least. No. they show http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/errorpages Unless MS fixes the redirector there is no fix other than changing the deafault to something else (ex msn.com)... this post just an explanation for people.
  7. Microsoft released in a TechNet blog post on February 1st that Office 2019 (Scheduled for release later in 2018) Will only be supported on Windows 10. They also reveal in the post that it will be supported for only 7 years (5 Mainstream, 2 Extended) Rather than the usual 10 years. Office 365 will suffer a similar fate in 2020 it would seem. Source: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/windowsitpro/2018/02/01/changes-to-office-and-windows-servicing-and-support/ Not like anyone needs new versions of office, anyways...
  8. EDIT 14/2/18 - THE REDIRECTION HAS BEEN FIXED. The Infernal Exploder default Homepage (http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&pver=6&ar=msnhome) Is confirmed NOT working on Windows 98, 2000, and XP as of a week or so. Most people have probably changed their IE homepage, but I haven't. Plain old MSN.com still functions as intended. Now the default link redirects to an error page. (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/errorpages) Workaround (Pretty obvious, but): Set homepage to something else... in my case msn.com because I'm boring. But this is annoying because I can no longer leave the homepage at default.
  9. Compaq 5008us best processor

    I'm not seeing anything that shows that it can take anything else, very possible the BIOS is locked to this CPU And you have a 100mhz FSB so I don't think you can use the 'fancy' 133mhz -EB models PIII, if any at all. Generally Tualatin (codename of later PIIIs, including the 1.4ghz models) dont work without an adapter, too. I'm assuming you have an 810 chipset but can you crack it open and look? it should have writing on the north bridge as to what it is.
  10. Hello everyone

    Greetings! Welcome to MSFN!
  11. Hello

    Hello! Welcome to MSFN!
  12. Latest Version of Software Running on XP

    I can confirm that it works perfectly-- I've used it for a couple of years now. I've had intermittent issues with the installer, though. Usually the full installer is needed.
  13. modernize ie 6?

    It's not exactly what you want... but once I was able to run IE8 with the IE6 theme. I'll look into how I did it and update this post. UPDATE: Meh. cant find anything. I did not install anything special to make this happen... I just found something on the computer... perhaps residue from an IE6 installation...this hard drive it was on was sadly wiped.
  14. Optiplex 170L Audio Driver?

    Thanks! that worked... I didn't think to try ones that didn't explicity say they worked with 98se (that one appears to be for 2000+) It works perfectly! ...and that one was right on thew drivers page for this sytem on dells site...if only I had been adventurous when I saw it before.
  15. Hello, all. I am trying to get the audio working on a Dell Optiplex 170L (865 chipset) with Windows 98 SE. I have all of the other drivers installed, the video was a little tricky, but i got it eventually. Here is the information from the Unknown Devices utility. Thanks for any help... really don't want to use a PCI sound card if i don't have to. P.S. On the dell forum a long time ago some guy said He got it working, but didn't state how.
