Sony Vaio PCV-90 restore.

Postby Intel486dx33 » 2018-12-07 @ 04:42

I am trying to restore a Sony Vaio PCV-90 desktop.
It has a Pentium 200mhz CPU and 32mb ram.
I have Win95c installed.
Audio Yamaha YMF-701s is working fine with Yamaha Audician-32 drivers.

I need to get USB working.

I need USB update driver package for Win95c.
Windows 95c device manager shows that I need "PCI USB driver" ?

And is there a PCI USB adapter with Win95 support ?

And I need a good network adapter 10/100. Does anyone know of a good one that works vanilla with Win95c.

I have 4 PCI slots and 3 ISA slots.

Have you installed the USB supplement and the supplement to the USB supplement? They should be in OTHER\UPDATES\USB on the Windows 95 C CD. If yours doesn't have them, look on the net for "USBSUPP.EXE" and "USBUPD2.EXE".
You can also try XUSBSUPP. I've never personally used it, but I have heard good things.

Only for 1.1 cards. The thing is that 95's USB support is surprising that it actually works at all, the less you mess with it the better, if you can get the onboard to work I'd stay with that.
What kind of motherboard does the thing have?

If you get a 3com 3C905B or a Intel PRO/100 you can't go wrong. Also RTL8139s can work, but those are rubbish aren't that great, especially on slow machines.

Next time.... Do a google search. It was not hard to find something. Though I am in a train right now, so I can not verify if this works.

All I did was to google "usb update for win95 c" and one of the first hits was this below. I am not making fun or anything. Just telling you to google first, before asking.

Thanks for your comments people. I will try them.

Update:

Thanks those USB updates worked. I have USB working on my Win95c computer now.
Works good for USB 1.1
