Re: Problem with Windows 98 and DMA

in Windows
Also, use 80 wire IDE cables if you can Is the problem the cable? How can I know that? Replace the cable with another 80 wire IDE cable - they normally have a grey, blue and black connector on each end.

Re: 486 SX 16 & 20 MHz

Doom just loves the 486 architecture. The SX-16 is very close to the DX-40 in Doom, but quite behind in the rest of the benchmarks. Interesting results though, as I was competing with my friend's SX-25 when I was young (I had a DX-40). Mine had 128kb of external cache, and his didn't have any, so …

Re: Should I buy a MT-32 'old' today?

Re: Looking for reccomendations for either PCem or 86box

Agree with Zup's comments. PCI sound cards didn't really gain wide spread adoption until 1998 ( as people started to upgrade to Pentium II PC's). Many people bought Pentium MMX CPU's in 1997 and 1998, due to the high cost of the Pentium II and, although some later models (from late 1997 & 1998) …

Re: When did you purchase your first 386 / 486 Computer? Availability vs the early 90's affordability norm.

Here in South Africa, availability of computers were never really a problem. As in many other countries and due to the era, personal computers were just very expensive. I think once AMD & Cyrix (and to a certain extend some other CPU manufacturers) started to enter the CPU market, did the price of …
