  1. I been working on a retro Win9X gaming build for quite some time now and I finally got a reasonable build that can work with all the games I used to play back in the day, How ever I've run into a few problems with the setup, most of which I can deal with for now, but there's a major design flaw it seems. A lot of my games use the old midi format for music (as most did in the 90) so having a Soundblaster (or any sound card for that matter) is a must. Lot of my more recent Win 9x games also use Wav, Mp3, etc for sound as well and since I have a old stereo as my speakers I naturally want the best sound played through it so an old sound card doesn't cut it that well in my opinion. To make a long story short, I settled on a CT 4520 I freely got from an trashed Celeron system and a CT 4830 I bought for the build awhile back. Everything was fine until I installed Windows ME, then the problem arose. 1. The CT 4830 (SoundBlaster Live!) COMPLETELY freezes the entire system after playing sound or even doing nothing for awhile, though outside of that it works perfectly fine. I have tried the CT 4830 on many Win ME systems and the problem occurs there as well unfortunately, so I assume it's the card or the OS and not the PC it's self at least. 2. The CT 4520 (AWE 64 Value) has a precise repeating clicking/popping noise at all times when not using the midi synth. Also it can't play ANY digital sound (like Wav, Mp3, etc.) at all in Windows Me. Thankfully the midi synth is 100% ok which is my only real reason for keeping the card in the first place for that AWEsome (Sorry had to write that! XD) late 90's synth. I've already determined that having both sound cards in at the same time is perfectly fine, but the CT 4830 is the biggest problem as even when it's the only card installed it still freezes. I really wish that I could get the setup working with this configuration, but if not I do have 2 (maybe 3) other older model sound cards I could try instead. Thanks for your help. (NOTE: I'll be out of town from Aug. 4th till the 26th so I won't be able to test anything until I get back, but please keep sending suggestions to fix it during my trip. ^_^) Also here's the detailed specs for my build in case it helps. MOBO: Techram P6Pro-A+ (Btw, if you know what drivers this board needs that would help as I can't find much info for the board these days.) CPU: Pentium 3 @850mhz (Socket 370 with Slot 1 adapter) RAM: 512mb GPU: Geforce FX 5900 XT Sound Cards: AEW 64 CT4520 (ISA) & Soundblaster Live! CT4830

    Windows ME Update Packs?

    Hi all, Can anybody provide me a link, or point me in the right direction of an all-in-one Windows ME update pack? Also, as a side note, does anyone have any tips for making ME more stable? Thanks a lot. Toby
  3. Hello everyone my name's Jason and I have a question. I currently own an old Pentium 4/HT based rig with the following setup: Specs- Current Case: Athenatech A4224BB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811190051 Psu: Antec 300w (Model: PP-303XP) http://www.antec.com/specs/p303xp_spe.html Mobo: ECS L4VXA2 (V1.0A? Not sure as there isn't any indication of revision A, B, or C labeled anywhere on the board; therefore I'll assume it's rev A.) with Socket 478. Bios rev. 1.1e http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=1&DetailID=44&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=24&LanID=0 Cpu: Celeron 2.4 ghz (North Wood, no HT, no OC) Gpu: Nvidia Geforce 2 MX/MX 400 with 32mb or on-board ram (I think it’s just the mx version, not sure though). Ram: 768mb = 3x256mb of DDR1 ram at 333mhz Drives- 1 Maxtor 80gb ide HDD, 1 Zip Disk 100 ide drive, 2 Floppy drives (3.5 inch/1.44mb), 1 CD-RW drive, and 1 DVD-RW drive. OS: Windows Millennium Edition Ver. 4.90.30000 I wish to upgrade this rig to the following: Specs- Potential Case: Same (if possible). Psu: Same (if possible). Mobo: Same. Cpu: Pentium 4 3.06ghz (HT disabled). Gpu: Ati Radeon 9800 Pro/AIW or Geforce 6800 GT or better if possible. Ram: 3gb = 3x1gb of DDR1 ram at 333 or 400mhz Drives: Same. OS: Same. Audio: SoundBlaster Live! Or better. Will this set up work and what will I need to do to modify WinME to work with it properly? A few points of concern on my part I hope you might know how to fix/suggest a better method: Hardware Issues- Current Psu seems to hate my Molex to floppy power adaptors and will not start at all unless I use the two original floppy power cables. This also means that most of my molex cables are really close to the drives and I can’t extend them further to reach a gpu if it needs a molex power plug. The case I have isn’t very accommodating to large gpu’s and my Geforce 2 MX already takes up most of the space between the hard drives and it’s AGPslot. ACPI is completely broken and I had to disable it on this board as it causes random shutdowns and Windows Me can’t shut down normally with it enabled or it hangs on a black screen with a blinking dos cursor. Software/OS issues: I don’t have any software/OS issues yet but I’ll post them here if any should arise. Thank you for your time in reading this and replying. P.S.: If I posted this to the wrong forum section, just feel free to tell me where it should be or move it there if possible.
  4. Hello, Is it possible to install Skype on Windows Millennium Edition? I know I can install an older version, but I can't login to that.
  5. Dear pro-users of 9x/Me! I need your help to install Windows Me. My motherboard AsRock 775i65G r3.0 officially supports Windows 98SE and Me; AGP 256 MB video by NVidia (6800GT) is also officially supported. Only IDE devices for Millennium are used (HDDs and CD/DVD-Drive). I've already tested Windows 2000 on this machine for a couple of months, and everything worked fine. Now I'm trying to install full retail version of Windows Me on ~25 GB primary partition in the beginning of my 320 GB HDD (other partitions except another following primary ~ 50 GB partition for programs are hidden), but still have no luck. First time I've tried it just to check if it's possible to install Millennium with 2 GB RAM. - No luck, just non-stop reboots. Second time I've removed one 1 GB of 2, so only 1 GB left. Everything was fine until second reboot, then "updated system files, continuing to load" message and... Nothing except blinking cursor right after the words "continuing to load". Now I've tried to install 256 Mb of RAM - everything was fine until second reboot again. Just right after the phrase "updated system files, continuing to load" everything stops. In the beginning white cursor blinks some seconds, then PC itself turns off. When I use 1 GB memory stick, PC just freezes with blinking cursor without shutting down. What problem could it be? What processes are made during this stage of installation (second reboot just before the final part)? Can multi-core CPU affect this? Or installed SATA-drives, which are planning to be used by XP? I want to make Millennium on my PC real! :-) Thank you!
  6. Hello, guys! For a years I've been reading this forum, planning to make powerful PC, which normally runs Windows Me, 2000 and something modern (thank God, Windows 8 came out with the UI I really like , so it's gonna be Win 8.1). So... I've been buying parts of my future PC, part by part, but now I stuck into trouble. Is it possible to get AGP GeForce 7950GT 512 Mb run under Windows Me? Maybe with rloew's patch or somehow else. If yes, it'll be the best configuration: no problems with Win 2K + full support of 2560x1440 resolution for all 3 systems. Alternative configuration would be PCI GeForce 6200 for Win Me (possible problems with non-supported 2560x1440 mode) + AGP ATI Radeon HD 4670 (no drivers for Windows 2000 ). My PC isn't completed yet, because I'm waiting for some rare parts like IDE Blu-Ray Drive, so I can't check if it works right now. Motherboard fully supports Windows Me (ASRock ConRoe 865PE). Any help will be appreciated!
