  1. 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
  2. Hello, is there someone who has experience with Windows 9x on an Asus M3N78 motherboard with the nForce 730a chipset? I don't use the onboard graphics. Also, I have an external sound card which is compatible with Windows 9x.
  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. This is not something that happens particularly often, but when it does, it can be extremely frustrating. Every once in a while, I may be browsing the web, playing Doom, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, or doing something else on my Windows 98 machine, and suddenly, the shell stops responding and everything becomes unusably slow. Most of the time, I can do the three-finger salute, kill every open application and Explorer, and the desktop respawns, and I can go back to what I was doing. However, sometimes the system becomes so unresponsive that it completely locks up. The screen becomes a still image, the mouse pointer doesn't move, and the keyboard doesn't respond either. Even pressing the power button on the front of the case does nothing. Ctrl+Alt+Del has no effect, either. It's as if Windows was just frozen in time. I once let the machine sit for two hours like that to see if it would finish whatever it was doing, only to come back with it still locked up as ever. As much as I absolutely hate doing this, I have no choice but to hard reset. I hold the power button down for 5 seconds to forcibly power off the machine, and then turn it back on and wait for ScanDisk to take its sweet time checking the disk for errors before Windows boots up. This happens maybe once or twice a week for me, but it's still infuriating. Has anyone else experienced things like this? Are there any ways to diagnose this when it happens and find the cause.
  5. I've used Opera 12.02 many times in the past with Windows 98, but after reinstalling Windows on my desktop, I can't seem to get it to run or install. I downloaded the installer from here and set the KernelEx compatibility mode to Windows 2000 SP4, but when I run it, I get this error: Opera has failed to access or upgrade your profile. This may have occurred because your computer has insufficient resources available or because some files are locked by other applications. You may have to restart your computer before Opera will start again. I'm running Windows 98 SE on a 1.5 GHz Pentium 4 with 512 MB of RAM, so this is well more than sufficient resources, and I have barely anything running. I've run Opera before on this machine without any troubleRebooting does not help. I downloaded the file 3 times just to make sure it isn't corrupt, but I still get the error. I've tried Opera 11.64, and I get the same error. Extracting the setup files to a directory and trying to run opera.exe also produces same error. Right now, I'm stumped. Any ideas?
