Sony Vaio PCV-90 restore.

Postby Intel486dx33 » 2019-1-04 @ 20:09

Here is a Sony Vaio PCV-90. This is one of the early Sony Vaio Desktops.
It has 4 ISA slots and 3 PCI slots.
Supports up to 128mb ram.
200MHz Intel Pentium MMX, 2.5 GB Hard-drive loaded with Windows 95, Onboard ATI RAGE 3D Graphics Acceleration 2 MB EDO
Onboard Yamaha audio via YMF-7xx driver.
Sold for $2500 in 2007.
I like this computer because it is basic and has ISA slots and NO TV capture stuff like the NEWER Vaio's do.
What I don't like is the Cheap Sony Vaio purple skin they put on this case.
It is cheap and comes apart easy.
I upgraded the ram to 64mb and added a DVD drive because I had one lying around.
It can't play DVD movies but at least I can read DVD data disks.

That's because this guy is a troll. But it seems the moderators don't care about that.

@blurks
The only trolly thing about his message history is the fact that there are lot of double/triple topics all containing the same questions and photos and topics.
This topic right here marks the third time he is talking about his Sony Vaio PCV-90.

@Intel486dx33
Instead of opening yet another topic whenever you want to add info to one of your projects, you should revisit and post in your already existing threads about this build.

Basically the definition and essence of trolling.

Forgoting that you posted something and posting it twice makes you a troll nowadays?
No sir I don't like it!

I'm pretty sure you can count to three so why don't you make use of that ability? This system has been discussed two times before, makes it three including this topic.
Other multiple trolling/spamming/"call it whatever you want" posts/topics/attempts are listed in here.
Feel free to enlighten yourself.

Yes, that sounds great. I was looking for an original restore disks with win95 but could not find one.
I would very much appreciate an IOS image of it.
