I probably already bragged about it somewhere, but when my pc died in the summer holidays, I assembled a new one:

Asus a8n5x motherboard
Athlon XP 4000+ 2.4 Ghz
512 MB Ram
Asus geforce EN7600 GT 256 MB
Asus 450W power supply with blue leds
320 Gigabyte HDspace (+old 40G HD)

All neatly assembled in this case:

Bottleneck is the ram, however I sort of ran out of money. (The ram was taken from my old, late, pc) The fan makes a lot of noise, should do something about that too.

I currently have 2 dos gaming computers

1, A pentium 4 windows xp with 50 gb and 256 mb ram. That is my good dos computer
2,My non working windows 98 with 128 mb ram and 6 gb total memory. My 98 gives me errors like incomapatiable sound and incompatiale graphics and can play only some games. The computer likes to freeze and as odd as it may seem the computer has no viruses. I should have kept that old 1988 IBM which only had a floppy drive. That was a great computer. I still do not know why i replaced my 95 with that 98 a while back. The 98 is a pile of junk.I should have kept the 95 and the 3.1 and the IBM. I should have even kept a 286.

Have you actually opened the case lately gave it a good clean out, and checked that none of the capacitors on the motherboard are blown or tilted.
Secondly have you downloaded any HDD utilties from your HDD manufacturers site and tested for glitches?
and thirdly there might not be viruses but did you ever consider spyware?

Their is no spyware and i have not installed hdd utilities and if the capacitors were blown than why is their a couple games that will work on the 98. Almost every last game won't work on the 98. I can only get a couple dos games working. Any windows games i played on the system do not work. The machine is strangly playing jazz jackrabbit much too slowly and the sound on the game is working terriably. The disks are in great shape too. I have a lot of ram and mb's left also so what is wrong. :Angry: :Angry: :Angry: :Angry: Jazz is one of the only dos game i got working on the computer. I tried doom but the computer froze. I surprisingly can get card games working on the machine though. I can only play either board games, card games and text based games running on the machine. I can run wolfenstein on the machine though. Games that are older than 91 and newer than 94 and newer will most likely not run on the computer. Only exceptions are most text games, board games and card games. Only some 94 games will work on the computer. I can play The need for speed if i run it on vga mode with the lowest settings. but if i raise the graphics the game crashes.

One word: Vee Dee Oooh Card! :laugh:

I wanted to say get another win 98 copy and reinstall it but now I think it's the video card... what kind is it? and do you have the er... latest drivers for it?

Depends if hulk is using onboard graphics or accelerator, either way he needs to either replace the card or get a card. However let's say that he his onboard grpahics were flickering or playing up constantly, then I would suggest replace the motherboard.

I am using on board graphics because i thought it was better than an accelerator. The screen does not flicker but it does play up every now and then. I have a very out dated sound card that is older than a sound blaster. I got it because i thought it more up to date. I really should hae never replaced a lot of the parts on the computer. I got older parts when i thought they were more up to date.

Maybe give it a re-format and then if it still plays up then use a diff video card :thumbsup:

A new computer? :O

With Win XP you say? And it's still acting up?

Oh brother...

It is not acting up on me. I have a terrible video card and a terrible sound card but my computer is not acting up. I have two computers the one i just mentioned and the other xp that has 256 mb ram. I made a mistake on the performance specs of the older xp. I have 60 gb total,terible video and sound card. 1.3 ghz and can go up to 30 thousand cycles. I can do more cycles but i feel quake runs fast enough with 30 thousand cycles and 10 frameskip. Tomb raider runs just fine without dosbox. Doom runs nicely with only 6000 cycles. The windows 98 is gone.

The reason both computers have bad video cards is because the video cards are very good for dos games and early windows games. My computer can play nfs hs perfectly but to be able to use direct 3d mode i have to replace the direct x 6 file with a direct x 7 file.
