  1. Can I use this power supply with the normal ATX motherboards? thanx https://www.ebay.com/itm/DELL-W8185-305-WATT-POWER-SUPPLY-L305N-00-PS-6311-2D2-OPTIPLEX-320-WITH-WARRANTY/112494148355 https://www.amazon.ca/Continuous-Desktop-Supply-L305N-00-PS-6311-2D2/dp/B01BGML522
  2. I wish you name some of those windows games you know, that is not playable on Xp, by simple click...
  3. according to the opinion of one technician I know , This is typical for a bad capacitor. did you try installing pentium D or pentium 4 ,and it did the same? I have similar issue , it is that it takes long time for the bios to post. it seems that it is a popular problem ,cause I read online lots of people complain the same issue ..
  4. last month I bought the motherboard ASRock 775i65G , with cpu intel E5700 ,2 GB ram... it is the most easily found (used) motherboard that is comptible with windows 98- Me ,I installed windows ME on it, it works fine till now... though it is produced on the capacitor plague era... I'm worried that it won't live long. actually my only reason for using win ME is the vintage gaming. I read somehwre that even win XP ,can't render some old games as good as win 98 ?
  5. you made a good point .. unfortunately , a very hard or impossible to find those used pentium 3 systems ,sold where I live.
  6. thanx Rainyshadow what well built motherboard or desktop (if I find used or new ) do you suggest for me to install windows ME on it?
  7. According to Wikipedia The capacitor plague was a problem related to a higher-than-expected failure rate of non-solid aluminium electrolytic capacitors, between 1999 and 2007, especially those from some Taiwanese manufacturers, due to faulty electrolyte composition that caused corrosion accompanied by gas generation, often rupturing the case of the capacitor from the build-up of pressure. Major vendors of motherboards such as Abit,IBM, Dell, Apple, HP, and Intel were affected by capacitors with faulty electrolytes. In 2005, Dell spent some US$420 million replacing motherboards outright and on the logistics of determining whether a system was in need of replacement. If not of all them were affected , what are some examples of those system with good capacitors ? Are there any motherboards compatible with windows Me ,that have solid capacitors?
