  1. Hello, welcome to the thread dedicated to sharing the systems you have. Pictures, backstory, specifications, it all goes here! (the rest of this post is outdated and will be updated) Personally, I own 3. Compaq Presario 1260 Compaq Presario 1065 (and a broken one for parts) Compaq Presario 3550 (Will add details Later) My father has a Presario 1200XL with Windows ME. (Still actively used by him for Excel and Word editing)
  2. Hey all, I am here for advice/help on getting Windows 98se to work on a Compaq Presario SR1090NX Desktop. I seem to be able to find all the drivers I need for getting everything to work, but I am having an issue where the IDE controller is having a resource conflict, this doesn't happen in Windows XP SP3. The reason this is a issue is because it leads to the system not being able to detect either optical drive. It seems no amount of fiddling with the settings in the bios does anything. It also seems that when I get all the drivers installed, the system will lock up at random times, sometimes it will give me control again, sometimes it won't. Also, is this computer "too new" to run 98se correctly? I'll give a rundown of the specs in-case it helps. CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3400+ Processor @2.20 GHZ Ram: 1GB DDR PC-2700 Chipset: Nvidia nForce 3 (Drivers: http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_udp_win9x_4.27.html ) Video Card: Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 (Drivers: http://www.nvidia.com/object/win9x_81.98 ) HDD: 200GB Western Digital (40GB for Win98se) Also some generic modem, USB card reader (works with USB driver), 1394 port (works out of the box), a 1.44MB floppy drive, a DVD/CD-RW and CD-Rom. I'll try to provide more info if needed.
