Re: What do you regret throwing out?

in Milliways
With "thrown out" I imagine you mean throwing it in the trash or have it recycled? In that case I've only thrown away broken parts that are easy replaceable, like case fans or broken PSUs. I've given away or sold parts and whole computers but I've not regretted it (yet). Everything went to other …

Re: My Windows 95 486 build

Never seen someone run Win95 on am MFM drive before. Nice challenge. I would do it just to see if it works, but I doubt it would be fun to work with in the long run. That processor works without a heatsink but it's advised to use one anyhow. There are still chances it would overheat and you'll …

Getting the sound to work correctly in DOS can be tricky. It all depends on how the sound drivers are set up in Windows and for DOS. ESS cards often have pretty good DOS support but you have to make sure you load the DOS driver for it. From what I can gather online you're laptop has an ESS-Maestro2E …
