  1. cdod, Thanks for the reply. was just coming in to report that I have the speakers working. Found the 01/02/2010 post from premorob at "sevenforums" explaining how he did it with a WIN7 system using the 2K drivers from the Gateway 7507807.exe download. For some reason my computer wiil not extract those files. "These files are not compatible with your system". However, I still have the install disc from Boston and on a hunch I checked it. There is a folder labeled WIN2000. Note says theses are the drivers needed for 2K and we are including them even though 2K has not been released yet I can almost forgive Boston for deleting the 735 USB files. Anyway, hooked the speakers up and let XP install them. They were installed as a HID. Apparently XP does have some Boston HID drivers, but they don't work with the 735 USBs. Went into Device Manager, HID, Boston HID and updated the driver to the 2K BAUSBHID.inf. Soud is great. Just wish I could get the rest of the interface to work. Don't really need the GUI, but it would be nice to be able to change the voulme with the knob on the speaker.
  2. Computer is a Gateway Essential 667 that originaly had 98SE. Still want to get a few more years use out of it, so boughtt an XP Upgrade that had never been used for $65. Installation of XP went fine. Replaced the Intel 82801 AC'97 Audio Controller that XP loaded with the original Conexant Crystal WDM Controller. Analog sound works fine. Had been using Boston BA735 USB Speakers with the 98SE install and would like to use them with the XP. Installed the Boston software whichis supposed to pull a digital signal off the sound card, but have not been able to get the speakers to work. Has anyone been able to do this? Plenty of posts about using the regular BA735 speakers. They just require a digital output.
  3. noguru, First I heard about. Reason I copied ojn's post here. Have been lucky so far (cross fingers), so don't visit Malware very often unless I suggest someone go there.
  4. Multibooter: Thanks for pointing out problem with url. Corrected it in my post.
  5. This was posted by ojn at TechGuy's 31July2009 at 04:38PM on thread about free AV's that still were supported for the old systems. I checked it out. It is real. Avast has added the following notice without much announcement. See: http://www.avast.com/eng/system-requirements-avast-home.html "Note: The operating systems Windows 95/98/Me/NT4 will be supported until the end of 2009." Miltibooter: Thanksfor pointing out problem with url. Corrected it.
  6. RetrOS, thnaks for reply. DLSayre
  7. This may have been asked before but could find nothing by searching. Wolud the Autopatcher work on a Mellineum Edition install? I have to reinstall my ME and Autopatcher (used April 2008) did such a good job on my wife's 98SE, i would really like to use it. DLSayremn, a grateful user of AutoPatcher.
  8. Thanks for correcting me. Was repeating info that I had read on another forum, can't remember which, about Vista rtail discs being tied to license key so would not work with OEM. Hopefully he can get one with SP1 and bypass 72 Updates.
  9. Her OEM key WILL Not work with retail version disc. Depending upon version, Visat w/SP1 will cost $240 - $300. Make back ups of all her personal files, then use the OEM discs. Just spent about 15 hours redoing my computer because the HD failed and I had no back ups. Got a new, bigger HD, External HD and Acronis. Compared to the 3 hours for reinstalling all the needed updates (comp is 22 months old), 52 just to get to SP1, manually removing unnecessary programs is a breeze.
  10. You may want to try speedguide.net.
  11. Only other thing I can add is go into LAN settings and click Automatically detect settings. Have 2 Gateways one running 98SE and the other ME. I use US Robotics USB adaptors for them now, but did have the 98SE hooked up to my DSL gateway and that is all I needed. Not that familiar with D-Links, but some older ones had a USB port, you probably could have connected to the 98SE that way. Ethernet connections work much better. DLSayremn
  12. I hate to be the bearer of sad news. You need to mark Avira Antivir Personal v. 7.06.00268 LAST for 98SE. The new version Avira Antivir v. released August, 2008, has only 2000/XP/Vista as OS's DLSayremn
  13. I have used Speedguides optimizer on all my computers. 1 Vista, 1 ME, and 1 98SE all unmodified except for optimizer changes. My modem says trained at 1536/1024 Kbps. I routinely get readings from Speedtest.net of 1305-1440 Kbps down and 730-850 Kbps up on all macHines depending on test site.. PC Pitstop once gave 1640/975. Nitro UCSC Test on Vista done about 10 minutes ago. For some reason always 100 Kbps lower than Speedtest.net. Until I used Speedguides optimizer download was about 900, up was about 650, and the reciever limited value was over 25%.
