Which chipset do I have to choose?

What chipset, in your opinion, is the best for Pentium MMX. I want to exclude the i430HX. The choice is:

Intel 430TX;

I tried to install my Opti USB 1.1 under Windows 95 4.00.950B (osr 2.1), and Windows, after installing usbsupp.exe and wdmusb.exe, detects it correctly. When I try to use an USB Device, Windows detects a new device, but cannot find the drivers, of course. I didn't have the Windows 95 drivers for the...

My PC is not sufficient for Windows XP, because has 64 MB RAM and a P200 MMX. I want to use it on Windows 95! I will try!

Well, maybe Windows 95 A (absolutely first edition) is not such a good OS, but I tried Windows 95 4.00.950B (also known as Windows 95 with Microsoft Internet Explorer) and it ran very good from 1998 to 2002. I tried to install usbsupp.exe on Windows 95 4.00.950B and it ran, but the peripherals (like...

Can USB run under Windows 95? Yes, but how?

I know that is possible to use the USB platform under Windows 95 OSR 2.1 and 2.5, by installing USBSUPP.exe. I tried this, and the Opti USB- PCI device is correctly detected, but I still can't use any USB peripherals due to the incompatibility of the drivers. Can I find a way to use these peripheral...

Help, my Creative Sound Blaser 32 PnP is detected as SB16!

I have a SB32 PnP from 1996. It's a very big audio card: it has got 2 simm-slots for the MIDI. Anyway, Windows 98SE detects it as a Sound Blaster 16 Plug and Play, but detects also a voice like "SB AWE32 effects". Shoul I use it as a 32-PnP Sound card?

What should I run on a 286-machine?

I would like to use my AMD 286 again. It has 6 MB RAM, 200 MB Seagate HD, 3,5 inch FDD and 5,25 inch FDD. I would like to go to the internet with an isa-modem, but I can't find any browsers that can run on a 16-bit CPU! Again, what games could I run?

Yes, it's a bit slow... so I tried to keep Win XP but, for DOS games, I decided to return to Windows 98SE. Now, i need the BIOS upgrade for this:

06/13/97-i430TX-NS336-2A59IQ1CC-00

The new MB is a QDI.

I paid it 15,90 € (I live in Italy). So in your opinion, it's the on/off switch that does not work or not? I can't understand! I say it's not possible! The MB was never used! When I tried the first time, I was very satisfacted.... but now, the MB doesn't work. Sometimes, the CPU becomes ho...

Help, my PCChips MB seems to be dead!

I bought through e-bay a PCChips M560, with the TX PRO Clone chipset: really, the chipset is the very good ALi Aladdin IV. I was using my PCChips with Windows XP. Suddenly, the PC crashed, and when I turned it on, it was dead: the PC doesn't dothe "BEEP" ; the CPU doesn't become hot... it ...

Of course, but you may easily know that, if under Windows 9x/ME the FDD works, it probably won't be an hardware problem, but i think a software problem! But... what can I do? I remember that it worked!

I tried. But do you believe me if I tell you that it isn't detected at all? Anyway, it isn't the floppy drive that is not detected, but the whole Floppy-disk controller! If I go to the system properties, the device "floppy disk controller" (or something like that) is missing, while, on Win...

Of course, I formatted the C:\ drive. I tried it a lot of times, but the result was always the same!
