Dell Geforce256 64MB Capacitors

I have a Dell Geforce256 64MB that I was wanting to replace the capacitors on. IT seems to have a quite noticeable shadow effect going on. Almost everything has a black fade coming out to the right. The caps on here aren't labeled very well, however. The 2 big ones are labeled 011 330 6E (top to …

Re: SB LIve MIDI Out VXD Drivers

Just reinstalled windows and used a separate older Sb Live Platinum install cd with vxd only drivers. Everything installed fine but still no midi out to sound canvas through the gameport when trying to play DOS games within Windows. It will only play the emulated midi through the Line Out. I know I …

Re: SB LIve MIDI Out VXD Drivers

Well I tried using an AWE64 ISA PNP card in the same machine and I cannot get it to output to the external MIDI port either when trying to run DOS games (ie. Blood, Duke 3D) from within Windows using the drivers that were already on the W98 install cd. Is this a limitation of Windows or is there a …

Re: Voodoo 3500 Low Resolution with VGA Switcher

Did you mention whether the card is AGP or PCI? If it is AGP it likely just doesn't like sharing-.... It is AGP yes. How's testing those drivers going? Any updates? Maybe we can help move you forward. Just got around to it. Manually changed the Monitor driver to a Viewsonic G800, which is what I …

SB LIve MIDI Out VXD Drivers

I have an SB0100 SB Live card in a Win98 build. I have the midi out port plugged into a Sound Canvas. I am trying to use the VXD drivers for faster game play but I do not seem to get any MIDI out when using the VXD drivers. Everything works fine with the WMD drivers. Is this something that is …

Re: Voodoo 3500 Low Resolution with VGA Switcher

I helped beta test the drivers for the last of the commercially available 3Dfx cards and I can confirm that motherboard compatibility was sometimes an issue. At the time I was using an EPox board and was an AMD fan. They had to send me two new sets of drivers before the card worked on my board. So …

Re: Voodoo 3500 Low Resolution with VGA Switcher

How do you know the VGA switch is the problem? I've never heard of this happening. There's a bunch of tests, like does it happen when the computers trade positions? Based on what's here I'd hazard to guess it's on the software side. Maybe clean out old drivers in safe mode or try a clean install of …

Voodoo 3500 Low Resolution with VGA Switcher

I have a Voodoo 3500 hooked up to a 2 port VGA switch. A Geforce256 build is also connected to the switch. The problem I am trying to solve is an odd one. This configuration worked initially. I had both computers set at 1024x768 32-bit on the desktop. The next day I booted just the Voodoo PC and the …

Re: Make Win98 Taskbar Larger

You can also try applying the "Windows White (Extra Large)" theme and the Quick Launch -> View -> Large properties to make the taskbar bigger: https://i.imgur.com/vSe8oPE.png 1.PNG You can track, for example, using the RegShot program, what changes are made when applying this theme to the registry. …

Make Win98 Taskbar Larger

I have a Win98 machine that I am running in 1600x1200. I have made the desktop icons larger but was wondering if there is a way to make the Start Menu and Taskbar larger in size? I know you can click and drag to give it more layers but I am wanting to make it actually larger in size but still keep …

SysMark98 and Bootmark

Looking to compare some of my builds to the benchmarks used by Maximum PC in the late 90s. It would appear that SysMark98 and Bootmark were the two big ones that they used. However, I cannot seem to find a copy of either of these. Does anyone have/or know where one might obtain these?

mPlayer Installer Quotes

Does anyone remember all the comical quotes that mPlayer multiplayer fronted would display while installing back in the mid-late 90's. I have been searching for copies of these quotes for years and they seemed to be wiped from existence. One of them that I remember was "If at first you don't succeed …

Re: Geforce 2 Model # Codes

That you all from the replies. That helps a lot! TheAbandonwareGuy, I see you are from Carbondale. I’ve spent some time down there. I’m a couple hours north of ya. I feel it’s important to specify that being from IL doesn’t mean Chicago like most think 🤣.
