Just as well, I guess. :/


I'd love to see pics of stuff like that
Thinkpad A22m (P3-M 1GHz, 512MB PC100, 60GB HDD, Ati Rage Mobility-M1, Dual Sound Cards Intel AC97 & Crystal Soundfusion 4624). The OS is a heavily patched Windows 98SE (98lite Sleek Install, NUSB 3.3, USP 3.57, 98SE2ME, SH95UPD, Kernelex, and 98MP10)

I've been collecting these kinds of OEM patterns for awhile now and stumbled across your thread.

The patterns/tiles were sourced from here, ex-vtc, and a ton of other random old OS ISO's and places around the 'net (mostly through the internet archive). Enjoy.

GOLDMINE!!! Thanks, been looking for some of those old-style marble textures for a while :)

Right regarding my request - this is what I was talking about:

The attachment asus-a7n8x-deluxe-bios-post13.png is no longer available


I need a quality screen capture from the post screen of a 286 / 386 / 486 / pentium machine to make a wallpaper out of. I could kind of use that, but it need a lot of modding because I don't want USB devices, 40gig HDD's and alike showing up.

Any of you have a decent VGA capture device and an older PC to make a few snaps for me? I'd like to complete clueless1's wallpaper request.


A year but a few days later :lol:
I wanted such a screenshot myself for completely different reasons. When I finally got around it, it stroke me... wait, didn't I read in the past that someone else was also after one?
It's from a screen capture utility on a real 386, stored in uncompressed BMP. I only edited out the footprint of running the capture utility.

Care to mention which screen capture utility you used?
Sup. I like computers. Are you a computer?

Nah it's a secret.
Of course, it's called "Snarf" (Thundercats anyone?) http://pixelmetrics.com/Snarf/index.htm
It's nothing special. I used it because installing the TSR outputs only 1 line of text so the screen doesn't scroll. It requires a 386 though, I'm still after something that can capture MDA/Hercules AND runs on a 8088.

Still looking for a 'Time computers' lime green wallpaper with hour watermark hour glasses dotted alon the screen and the time logo in the right hand corner. I would actually pay to have that wallpaper just for nostalgia

Which got me thinking that surely we have some awesome vintage hardware themed wallpapers in our archives.

So what are you waiting for? Share them!! :D


I just got a Toshiba T5200 "laptop"... I wonder how that logo would look in 16 shades of orange? :lol:

Theyare wonderful! Do you have more? Can I use them on my blog as headers? I do not run ads or anything, totally personal blog on dedicated domain/storage that I pay with my own money. So I won't get money for using them.

Great posts you guys! I like to find genuine 90s wallpapers so I can use them on the appropriate machines of those times. This link has a lot of very 90s PC wallpapers to check out. https://www.flickr.com/photos/textfiles ... 4851135170
Though they don't pertain to 90s hardware or OEM setups. Basically its a lot of abstract art and photos with either slight or severe image effects. Just something a user might have had back in the day if they wanted to customize their Windows experience. :wink:
