  1. So I plugged it back in, and press power. Red embers and blue electrical looking sparks lite up. I plugged it out, I should have plugged it out sooner. Then it started to smoke. It is a DiamondMax Plus 9 ATA/133 HDD. The board PCB under the drive a chip has exploded. So I ordered a replacement PCB, and I hear sounds that I never heard before. like a clicking sound ( which means it has problems reading the head ) but it is followed by a high pitch beeping noise. ) I think it might something wrong machinically inside or the PCB is not the right make. Hopefully it is just the PCB, because now I have to go threw the painfull decison making proccessor of replacing and recoving the drive. The most important thing is the text files, but there is also everything else..
  2. Okay, I downloaded two versions of a program called Autocad. I installed one and it was working A-okay. I reset on this machine, everything okay Then I installed another version of the same program on a differnt machine. It was working. I reset the computer, and then the Display was in 16 color mode. Their are three devices Plug and play devices processor I forget the last one, but it seems that Windows is unable to identify the board, and anything to everything that is on it. The board is a regular PC board from E-machines, or Gateway, blah blah 1990's. I do not want to erase the windows folder, so what is missing????????
  3. I miss when things was normal and made sense

    It has nothing to do with being older, it is just logic of how things are. People do not pay for efermiral data, high end business users do not, children wanting to breifly listen to music, or old people wanting to watch Netflix. Then "hitting on girls" and "flirting" is replaced by the computer. It is sooo frickin boring to see people on the internet all day sending messages threw facebook, instead of making it with somebody who is right next to you. People just spend all day talking on the phone, argueing, and being annoyed for no reason at all. Like the way me and my parents would argue and then we stop, but with the celluar phone it is like the same conversation can go on for ages. When do these people work??? With all of these distractions, people are calling it another form of ADD, while I see it for what it is. People who are not usted to a product and has no self control. Like cable televsion, air conditioning, cars ( yes cars ), and even music. Right now thanks to the internet everybody is sooooo **** direct and keep quoting the **** Wikipedia, which is not real data for the most part. Like when you look up WIkipedia while the data is great it is boring. I just wish that all electricity would go away and we would go back to wind-up devices and telegraph machines.
  4. Low resolution driver for high end machines?

    I have been wondering, since many machines are in developed for higher resolution problems. Past machines did the same effort with lower resolutions. I am just wondering, about support for machines that are less then 320X240 or even lesser. Many people talk about how they altered the display driver so it can display such resolution.
  5. I have been looking high and low, for the langauge support files for Windows 95/98 and so on. The files should be on random discs that comes with the support files. As we all know Mafiasoft has drop support for the 9x series. So alternatively I had to download a Microsoft word alternative. I am not looking for a global MIE / IME file for the system. However I am looking for something that will allow me to use a secondary language keyboard alongside my regular keyboard. Please post links of your langauge support files, and any tools that allows using multiple keyboards with various language files. The language I am looking for is Japanese. Jasupp.exe Japsupp.exe Jsup.exe I forget what the exact name is. I am also looking for Chinese ( both Cantonese and Mandarin ), Korean, Russian, and Indian. Right now I need the Japanese files the most. This is one of the burdens of using windows. Many of the programs from other nations will not run without the correct support langauge files.
  6. Windows network card installed but no internet?

    Between the two setups their is nothing differnt, asides one that has tweaks, and twacks that I do not want to do over again. I attempted to reinstall windows 98, on the problematic machine, and it still has the problem. Explorer is unable to open a search I even renamed the Win.com to Win.old and nothing changed at all. I 100% believe it is a problem with the Registry files. Since that is where I go to slove my problems without reinstalling Windows, most of the time. I also believe it might be a maleware virus, or some kind of invalid entry. i think it might be a new virus or maybe something was deleted, or edited that is required by web browsers. Maybe it is connected but goes to the error screen for some reason.
  7. I miss when things was normal and made sense

    The next problem we face, is people stealing other peoples software, which was a big problem during the 1980's......I might have been kid but I wish it was like the 1980's still. I miss the early 1990's also. I miss the hair, the legs, the suits, the cars, the buildings, I even miss the Amiga, Atari, Amsterdam. and even when the Mac we fun to use. I miss paint programs, I miss the way things made sense, instead of now. I miss it so much. I know our medical is high, and our technology is greater for it, but I feel like the world is so disconnected with itself. I am happy for some things but I am sad for others. While I feel sad, it is almost like the world of dumb people keep getting dumber but at the same time they are happy for that stupidity.
  8. Cloud computing and future career as IT Professional ?

    From what I read, cloud computing is basically people with simular problems loading all of their crap into one server, and then people editing those problems, and adding notes. Basically imagine, what I and many of us are going threw on this forum. We have problems with our specific computer setups, so we ask questions. Somebody who knows what the problem might be or has a suggestion comes along to slove the problem. In combination we research to find the problem. Not to just test our abilities as Techies, but in case we ever end up in a sticky situation like the problemeer. Afterwards we send the data to a forum, or website, so we can help each other. However in cloud computing we basciallly combine P2P downloading Website / database threads / forums .............and dorkbook This is what most os us do on this website with our computers. We have a problem, we fix it, and then we put the solution in a text file. The proccess repeat itself. However when things get crazy we have an entire back up of what we need when we need it. ........................... About help desk from India. The problem is the internet. With the internet we all have gained knowledge we never needed to know, and it has help us, and defeated us at many times. With the so called internet we have limited the need to even go outside. This is the problem, we have with the world. ...............................................
  9. Windows network card installed but no internet?

    I have two computers with win 98 installed on them. The one with the clean installation I use to browse damaged installations, and the one I use for work, internet, play, etc. I just checked my backup 98 machine, and it is working wonderful. I don't want to pop my standard machine harddrive into the old machine. Basically I switch between the same monitor in order for me to browse the internet. I am trying to avoid a clean installation.
  10. Windows network card installed but no internet?

    kay here is the problem. The computer is great, the OS looks okay. The built in card which is a VIA ryne, that is built into the baord. AMD Athon XP Thoroughbred 2400+ 1.99Ghz. 736 MB of RAM VT8235 ( board name ) ( cycle time trans ( 6clck ) x86 Part of the problem was caused by me, with barely enough space in the computer that resulted in it reseting at random. So I probably overwrote some files, or damaged files. I tried reinstalling but nothing worked at all. I have to install the OS again, since I don't know what is causing anything. I believe the problem was in the directives. If yu can't read this, then Idk. I am looking for changes in the registery, Anything that could damage the win98OS from using the internet. Internet settings, =?? mispelled anything.
  11. Windows 98 and the 4gb file-size limitation

    wsxedcrfv, here is the reality. Downloading commercial media files that are products are illeagal period, no matter what legal law is passed, I doubt the people who painstakenly worked on the projects would appreciate you attempting to download, there hardworks. Yes it is not worth it, to buy Blu-ray, DVD, or even VCD. I would go back to laser discs but it is not going to happen, thanks to people in the States being addicted to portability, ADD syndrome. VCD is where I draw the line. About Europe, they have been using RGB and Satelite to pick up US channels, and Canada has a strong media respect. Ever since DVD was released to the States, streets have been turned into crime scenes. All of the stores like Blockbuster, Hollywood video, and even DVD outlit, and video etc has all been shutdown. Yesterday I saw the last video store on the block shutdown forever. That is how much piracy and the knowledge of piracy has damaged our communities. Seriously do you know how creepy it is to walk down a block of unopen stores during the night? The truth is most lazy cheap people like to watch television. That is the truth. The only reason people go outside is to buy movies. Did you even know we are not allowed to upload peoples illustrations without their permmisions. .................................................................. About blu-ray. Blu-ray is based off the idea of having the Raw data uncompressed via the MPEG-5/MP4 ( which is not even real MPG ) type. From 1970-2006 RGB ruled the airwaves, VCR's, Film Reels, and whatever. Television was "television" from Tenchi Color to god **** "Kings View" flatscreens. After that everybody seems to make everything in wide screen, which damages culture. Especailly American culture. Flat fact Blu-ray is not meant for W98. 9X is meant to be GUI consumer based product. In various nations they have their variant of DOS, UNIX, AMIGA and even MAC OS. W98 in todays world serves a cheap alternative for people developing high-end projects for consumer usage. That is all. I known the Windows/DOS series has been in our blood for the so many programs we use it for, but you have to realize the 98 is not meant for brainwashed consumer commercial work no longer. ....................................................................... About 4-gig downloading. You will just have to upgrade to Windows 2000. That is it. In fact before 98 I was using W2K to download stuff via phone wire. Another flatfact. Consumers believe that newer is better, instead of believing actual is better. You want to ride with the consumer, then get something that rivals the consumer archetech way of thinking. 98 is 2d, and floppy disk drives. Standards of limitations, not standards of whatever. ...................................................................... Yes I have allways wanted to get a group of programmers, oldschool and new and get them to work on a perfect Windows Geno-type. Where we can use all of our DOS programs, W9X, and even W2k, and Nt programs. So basically you are saying you want to go back to windows 3.0 ( which is 9x built on ( if I am mistaken ) and edit, edit, edit, until the OS is perfect. Then create a modifier file, that requires a copy of the following files ( whatever ) from the following OS. Windows 3 Win 95 Winter Lisa NT4 ? SP packs. XP release ??? That would be the legal and legitimate answer to doing what you want. An installation from the ground up. You could probably even some how include UNIX, Amiga, and whatever in the upgrade somehow. That is what and how I dreamed up the perfect OS. I am too a novice programmer, to even deal with it, and soooo much stuff to do. ...................................................................... On the horizin, there is a new disc format type that makes Blu-ray a joke. Look at the four corners of Asia folks, people are still using the Laser Discs, and various development tools people have forgotten. So the ultimate answer is ignore Blu-ray completely. Especially piracy part. Of course we all want to look cool in front strangers, and what not requirments.
  12. I hate designating computer types via commercialism TRON

    I like the regular built keyboard over the flat keyboards. Even the heavier Amiga keyboards is nicer then the more recent ones. explain this one to me? To me a laptop ( notebook etc ) is just a portable computer . I understand that a PC is just an extra big Microcomputer ( like a micro controller ) but can do multiple tasks and workstations is one task machine. How is the labtop even different then a notebook. I see ( I remember seeing somewhere in pre 2010 ) business people with laptops with hug antennas messaging, and most of the work done with high-end graphics is done on laptops ( like the i book ). The only difference I could think of is the cost effective technology.
  13. So back in 2005 when I decided to go to college.The photography lab was replaced by an armada of Apple G4s with built in Cameras. Thinking back to how they abused the office space of photgraphy and how he had our digital cameras in our faces. I think people overestimate advancement. Enough of the boring intro... the Ipad2 apparently is going to be faster, smaller, sport a camera, allow phone calls, and can even run touchscreen, motion games, along with regular devices. Speaking of Desktop, you have all seen the IBM commercial with their wireless mobile phone labtop. So apple basically is doing this to attune to people like me who don't like the widescreen get people who wants a simple computer and allows space change desktop media for life again in the comming ten years. okay, enough of the insanity. the point is the OSX ( intel and ppc ) can emulate DOS, win9x, winXP, Amiga ( why why why ), alot more Runs on top UNIX ( so if I had a brain I could run LINUX , with Wine, and then run my Adobe CS ), To all of 8-bit programmers, just has less inspiration towards making programs, that will do their function. I know it is nothing to worry about, and at this stage in my life I am more into being an hobbyist then a changer or shaker in the computer world but seriously. To the current generation Yers a labtop ( notebook ) is the same thing as a desktop.
  14. XP hangs at loading, blue dark screen then resets after a long time

    Edit: Okay so I plugged my monitor into the ProSavageDDR. It worked, but the whole point of me even having such a powerfull card is to generate graphics ( XSI, Maya, GTAIVPS3, and so forth. ). Also the ProSavageDDR has 3d, but not the 3d I need. So then I plugged back in the card, and it worked. It went into regular mode, and even played the music. But when I decided to open any programs, including the 3dlabs docking bay program. The whole entire computer freezed, with the music in the background it sounded like Maxheadroom from 1991 ( if anybody can remember ) bbbbzzzzzz ... I also installed direct X10LV. Did nothing. So I reset the computer into VGA mode, which allowed me to use the card. It worked, but I was unable to access any programs, and when I tried to change the resolution, or open an internet page, the computer would lag for an incredable long time, or freeze. So far I noticed a couple of things. 1. This started when installed the sound card, before that everything was A okay? 2. If the power connector to the card is unplugged ( 84Watt card on a 350Watt Power supply ) then I still get the blue screen or no loading of the computer at all. discovered this by accident. 3. If I attempt to go into an higher resolution, the computer freezes. This is in VGA mode and when the computer loads into 640X480. Keep in mind, before this mess. I was wrocking 1900X resolution. With smooth 3d motion. if all else fails I will have to find an empty usable HD and install XP SP2 again and reinstall to see if it is really the sound card. I am only assuming there is something wrong with the software in the OS. I have not ran error installation yet ........................................................ HERE IS A PICTURE OF THE BOARD, After I put in VIA VT8375 in a search engine. http://www.recycledgoods.com/product_images/v/906/s_p_25089_1__48903_zoom.jpg This also comes up. ProSavageDDR KN266. Originally when I had W98 installed( on another hard drive ) this was the driver type I used. I also just got the built in LAN to work. http://pdfguides.com/images/uploads/MSI-MS-6390-Mainboard.jpg VIA VT8375 is what comes up when I use CPU-Z ( Win9x ) I see what your talking about with northbridge. http://www.firingsquad.com/hw/481/Albatron_KM266_Pro/ All three boards seems to revolves around AMD series. Which is what is inside. Mine might look green, i believe. ......................................... I want to keep the Sound Blaster since It is supported by most of my DOS games ( so far ), and is a pretty good sound card for sound editing. ...................................... About standard motherboard? The board has two memmory sticks inside One is a PC2700 while the other one is PC3200, I believe. It has a built in card, but none of my 3d games will load from it. Only a few ...................................... I don't really think it matters. I was refering to how the graphics card "wildcat realizm" will not go into any other mode then 32-bit color display mode. I could only assume everything I use will have to be windowed? ( unlike my 98 ). Considering that NT was built for workplaces and not consumer usage.
  15. I hate designating computer types via commercialism TRON

    I know that people still consider assembler as a machine code language, but the majority of programmers are not taught how to use assembler from the get go. Instead they are thrown a bunch of various programming standards we could all name in a row. Say this is the now, and somehow it works out for the programmer intent. I am just so ticked off, when I see people using the term Legacy to reference old, done, finished, gone, no more drivers. What ever happen to Alpha, Gamma, Zeta, and Omega lingo? or just putting the word "Final" at the end of the driver to signify it's completeness or even "Extended Final" ( EF ) or something like that? Legacy crosses over into the idea of leaving something behind. Like the man who inherted a farm from his father, won the jackpot, then spent it all, and finally selling the farm. The farm can go furthur, but to use Legacy is like saying "dead man's X belongings", "deadman's shoes" or "deadman's project". For the boomers I could see why commercially, somebody would be that cruel to use the word legacy. Just to keep tossing the words around like HD, ( which could be Hard Drive, High Definition ( RGB )), in consideration to PS2 ( which is a radio standard, and playstation two ) which is perfectly understandable and differnt between work and play. I just contradicted myself. Now as with the work and play idea. Millions of Boomers will be telling thier Xers and Yers children, about leaving the world behind. Like the last war left people confused about the way a person should feel towards Zionists, and the why people should ignore Arabs. Like forcing idea's to make the next set of people flow like the last, on a commercial level.
