Re: Win311 will not start ?

Try running setup and switching to the normal 640x480x16 VGA mode driver. I think you might just have an issue with your video driver.

They also have a IBM compatible add-in card (random) item on there. Probably all modems. lol Hahhaaa, yes it does say dealers choice :) I remember what I bought from them many years ago: heatsink+fans, got a few for 486, a few for soc 370, and some 30mm x 10mm 5v fans for very reasonable. Still …

Re: Newly made ISA CL-GD5434

Dreamblaster X2 Midi File Playback in Windows 95

So, I just got my new Dreamblaster X2. So, thought I'd relive the 90s a bit and play some MIDI files I'd downloaded. Nope. I remember MIDI enough from the 90s not to have high expectations, but this sounds broken. The general sound is that of a department store Casio keyboard playing in demo mode, …

Alltronics has vintage computer parts cheap:

in Milliways
Hey, I don't know if this is allowed, but I just thought I'd share that Alltronics, a surplus electronics dealer, has a cache of cheap NIB 90s-era computer stuff. I put in a big order with them and got a box with the following: An ALPS serial mouse A parallel port switcher box a right angle parallel …
