Re: 2001 Dream PC project

You can try to overclock a 250MHz version with 4ns RAM to 275MHz. In the most cases you should be successful. There are some 250MHz cards with 3.6ns RAM which should surely fit the 275MHz.

Re: Is my Voodoo5 5500 broken?

Don think those solid caps will leak but the card does need some cleaning in that area. Recapping however is never a bad idea. Also start simple and clean the pci edge connector. Those leak just like any others. and they tend to cause issues as pointed out with surrounding components. I've seen …

Re: What was the first computer you ever purchased?

in Milliways
Indirectly it was a TRS 80 COCO that was handed down to me by my brother as he lost interest in it quickly. After about 6 months I got lucky and traded it for an Atari 800 with 48KB of ram at a swap meet in San Jose back when those were a common thing (that's where you got your bulk floppies and …

Re: Windows 98 SE - CD rom doesn't refresh?

more info is needed, you say 2 different systems, but what if any hardware is shared between the 2, what motherboards as well.

Re: NT3.51 Just turned 25 Today!

Re: Voodoo 2 - how to test

vram is in the video control panel under the voodoo2 settings tab, info button. Alsot it's a 12MB card based on your pictures, also it could possibly be an 8MB card turned into a 12MB card based on the different memory IC's used on the back. If it were an 8MB card the top 8 ram chips on the back …

Re: Voodoo 2 - how to test

More info, OS, Drivers, when do games crash. Open case test, closed case test, what kind of airflow? Etc. As for a general stability test you can leave Unreal looping, run Quake II demoloop with crusher and massive1 looping. I find the Unreal intro causes issues often before the QII demoloop. I'm …

Re: NT3.51 Just turned 25 Today!

I'm surprised how many people are saying their schools had a NT3 server. Did the education system get it cheap? Would have thought peer to peer was good enough, Computer labs were pretty basic in those pre internet for everyone days I know Microsoft made a deal with the Australian Education system, …
