  1. Well i used Partition Magic instead of fdisk to partition my harddrive this time. I ran Super_pi and after an hour and 30 minutes the program was completed on the 32 mb test. I set up the CPU test to run so we will see what happens but it is running fine now. I loaded up the same game and it works. I think my problem may have been installing my SiS drivers then updating the sis drivers before installing the C_Media drivers/applications. I waited to update untill I had installed the C_media drivers/applications. The correct order appears to makes a difference.
  2. So is this to be used with/instead of/a long side with the Unofficial Win98 SE Service Pack?
  3. Here is a picture of Bill Gates I found when I was looking for a file a few weeks ago. http://www.omahasun.com/download/

  5. Thanks for the reply. I was just looking at the bottom of my new hard drive box and noticed it has a disk at the bottom. I never ran the disk after install since my computer recognized the the new hard drive. Could this be a problem? I looked at the first program recommended. . . it requires an internet connection which my computer does not have (nor do I want). I have downloaded the Pi program and will load it up. I'll have to look up sisoft sandra and Memtest86. I have a memory test on the Ultimate Boot CD but I don't remember what it was. I think it took a few days to run so I skipped that one. Right now we have thunderstorms so I doubt I will be running my computer straight through for a few days. I loaded each game straight from the factory installation disk. My game computer has the following: Processor: AMD Anthlon XP 1600+ 1.6 GHz Math Support: On Chip BIOS: Award Software 04/30/03 Ports: 1 parallel, 1 Serial Memory: 256 MB Floppy: 1.44MB Hard Disk: 37.27 GB; 78 GB (New Disk) Multimedia: Sound, CDRom, CDRom Burner Video: 800x600 in 64 colors, Nvidia Geforce4 MX 420 ver. 4.0 BTW what is the safest way to clean the dust and keep the dust out of the computer?
  6. Thanks for the reply. Lets see: I have the DirectX 90c. Yes, my machine is a little dusty. I installed Win 98 SE Unofficial SP 2.0RC1. I installed the latest Asus drivers. I ran a tech check via Noton 2005 and the video all checks out fine. I had the latest nvidia drivers but I had heard the were too much for the older cards so I switched back to my version from July of last year. ****I did install a new hard drive.**** What do i do about the new hardware?
  7. A fatal exception 00 has occured at 0028:C023DB7F VXD in VDD(09) + 00001803. I did my reinstall and loaded up Serious Sam and palyed for about a day and recieved this message . . . .of course the game wouldn't play. I reinstalled Windows again and loaded half-life and started the game and received this message again. I never had this message before. . . what is it?
  8. Simple/Easy Download Manager. I was complaining about having myinternet disconnecting on larger files. Wackget is a knockoff of a Linux program Wget. Wget works great. I had to turn my computer off because of a storm; the computer disconnected itsself; and I disconnected once to get a better signal. Wget brought the file in complete. http://millweed.com/projects/wackget/
  9. Thanks for the links. I have saved both and have them tucked in a separate folder.
  10. Well I pulled everything off again and started from scratch. This time I did a chubby install with 98lite and pretty much followed soldiers recommendations except for adding MSOffice and adding the critical updates. I may add the critical updates but right now my computer sails right along so I think I may just stick with what I have or do the few update for IE up to 2.6. SO if I pull everything off again I think I will do the micro and see what happens . . . . not for a long time though. Oh, thanks for all the help!
  11. This is the patch that I downloaded from your site and it gave me the error. That is why I downloaded the others from microsoft. I was working my way backwards from oldest to newest when I came up with that message.
  12. Okay it turns out I didn't find the problem. I looked in the c:\windows\dahotfix.log and it says "error MSMXL 2.6 is not installed on the machine." Is this missing from the Win 98SE CD? Or did it forget to load it?
  13. This apears to be the problem . . . your links are not current.

  15. Since you brought up the subject which sites (freeware) are the ones to avoid and which ones are malware/spyware safe?
