Re: Pentium CPU issue

I noticed an issue with my 486 tonight. IN DOS, if i install a game that has multiple disks , when the game asks to switch to the next disk and I do, the system doesnt recognize that the new disk is different. When i install the same game through windows it seems to work fine. if you can... try a …

Re: Pentium CPU issue

My pentium has been working well. I played a bunch of games this weekend. A couple games crashed, but there was no lockups or reboots.

Re: Pentium CPU issue

I tried working on the pentium 1 last night but I failed miserably and was tired so i left it, but brought it to work to work on and I think i got it. Though I will only be able to test it at home as i dont have a ps2 mouse or keyboard here. I changed the voltage settings as shown above, I added a …

Re: Pentium CPU issue

Let me also ask... I've never had a computer with the turbo button. Does it actually do anything? it says 188, and when i press it is says 88.

Re: Pentium CPU issue

So: 1) ID board. Or if you can't, get us a really good pic of it outside the case and without cards & cables attached - so we can tryy. 2) find manual. There again, if you can't find it we might be able to help, but first we need to know which board it is. The i.d. is partially visible on the board …

Re: Ruined memory of an old game by playing it!

in DOS
I thought I had fond memories of Megarace with all its FMV glory... just ran it for the first time in over 25 years and it is awful! Turns out I mis-remembered and confused Screamer with Megarace haha!! Anyone else wish they never re-ran an old game that you had good memories of and it turned out …

Re: Pentium CPU issue

[...] Thanks, Ill get all that info when I open it up a gain tonight. I didnt change any jumpers at all. Then you are definitely running the CPU 0.5V too high. Fortunately for you the P55C is one of the most overengineered pieces of silicon out there and it can take a lot of abuse - but it will get …

Re: Pentium CPU issue

So i ran the computer with the case off and it lasted a lot longer. I was able to play through street fighter alpha all the way and then almost all the way through alpha 2. Then alpha 2 crashed to desktop . Since it didnt freeze or reboot. I started up tomb raider, which played fine. I got tired of …
