Re: How about a MR-BIOS ROM file repository?

For reference, wanted to document some attempts I made with a few of these BIOSes on a Diamond Flower 386/25-33-40UCE Rev A board. (Board is extremely similar to the 386/33-40UCE that has available jumper info online-- but it isn't the same board! The locations of everything are moved around ever so …

Re: KT400 & Radeon 9700: No-Go?

Well, I got somewhere but I'm not exactly sure how. I realized that I might be able to adjust the AGP Capability in the BIOS if I wasn't actively using an AGP card, so I swapped in a PCI card and was able to actually change it from Auto to 4X. Unfortunately, putting the 9700 back in still made it …

Re: KT400 & Radeon 9700: No-Go?

That's the problem though, the BIOS does not seem to allow me to change the AGP speed*. It is greyed out and just stays at "AGP 8X". Can I tweak SmartGART settings without the driver loaded? I can get into Safe Mode for registry changes or whatnot *Despite the manual saying I can. AGP Capability [8X …

Re: KT400 & Radeon 9700: No-Go?

Yeah, this issue seems to be specifically a KT400 issue, alongside contemporary chipsets supporting AGP 8X (SiS 648, P4X400). I do have a KT7-RAID and an Asus A7V266 (KT266) but both need recapped badly -- actually the A7V266 might not work at all, I just rescued it from a PC that was in someone's …

KT400 & Radeon 9700: No-Go?

I was putting together an Athlon XP build and have run into some issues using a Radeon 9700... The system is as follows, not much in there yet: Asus A7V8X-X (VIA KT400 chipset) - latest bios 1014.002 installed Athlon XP Thoroughbred-B 2600+ 2x1GB DDR-333 Radeon 9700 (standard version, 128MB) Promise …

Re: AudioPCI MIDI synth quality, VXD vs WDM

While you are correct that it brings that up as the default, it is definitely not the MS GM/GS Synth. Listen to the audio clips I provided, it is the AudioPCI ECW sound set which is quite different. :) I have the selection changed to "SB PCI Synthesizer" (All the WDM drivers are post-Creative …

AudioPCI MIDI synth quality, VXD vs WDM

I never see this mentioned about the AudioPCI so I thought I would make a thread about it. I've noticed that using an ES1371 with the VXD drivers results in very crisp and clear MIDI, whereas the WDM driver results in a more compressed/filtered sound as if it's downsampled to 22050hz or something. …

Re: All Claimed! Hardware Giveaway (10zig 56xx Thin Clients)

in Milliways
Got a chance to try things out. This is off to a great start! -As others have mentioned, adding the max speed option to the speed menu would be useful. Probably just an artifact of the low-powered Atom, but it seems like almost every game has audio stutter if Max is not used. -Mounting an external …

Re: HP 9000 C110

I picked up one of these a while ago. As far as I can tell it has 128MB of RAM installed and what I think is an HCRX-24Z card (the one with the hardware Z-buffer). It seems like an interesting machine but I was surprised how little information is out there. It's got an old install of HPUX 11.11 on …

Re: New Am486DX4 build

Hm... I suppose the stuttering could be DMA related. The QD6580 only supports up to PIO4. I also discovered that I was only getting PIO2 out of it, and needed a driver for the controller to get anything fast going. I found the DOS driver and after installing it PIO4 is working and my read speeds …

New Am486DX4 build

I recently put together this build from a bunch of parts I've picked up over the last few years. https://i.imgur.com/Cya1UFvl.jpg (Sorry, no inside picture... can't see anything with all the ribbon cables) AT desktop case - This came from a 386SX-16 system I bought in a lot. The board was completely …
