Re: Compaq Pentium 166

So I reinstalled the video drivers and everything seems to be back in order in that regard, but I may put the voodoo 3 back in , and just set the settings to no hardware acceletarion when I want to play a game that runs too fast with the hardware acceleration. Trying to install DOS soundblaster …

Re: Compaq Pentium 166

So a bit of an update. I still have the 2gig HDD. But I was able to get a 5.25 floppy drive and install it. Can't figure out how to install my iomega zip drive... I put the live 5.1 back in and followed instructions from a YouTube video and it seems to be working well but I still need to install the …

Re: Compaq Pentium 166

That answer was directed to the wrong statement by aaronkatrini and has nothing to do with your issues. Your BIOS may simply not support LBA addessing, which means it can't use hard disks larger than 8 GB. Were the larger hard disks detected during POST at all? I can't get into bios at all anymore …

Re: Compaq Pentium 166

Win98 doesn't support natively drives bigger than 30gb, some hdd have a jumper to limit the capacity just so it can be recognized by the Win98 system. There's no such thing as a 30 GB limit. Win98 supports drives up to 128 GB. Larger drives are still recognized and you can read from them, but …

Re: Compaq Pentium 166

Win98 doesn't support natively drives bigger than 30gb, some hdd have a jumper to limit the capacity just so it can be recognized by the Win98 system. About the sound card. Yeah, first try out what you already have, but personally I'd go for a cheap Vibra 16 Isa, it should fit what you're after. …

Re: Compaq Pentium 166

So I couldn't get the 5.1 working well so I tried a soundblaster live. It didn't work at all. I think it's dead but I do have a sounblaster PCI 128. I'm going to try that tonight. I think others mention an awe 32. I might try to find one . I also need to get the nice card working it's a Belkin. Card …

Re: Compaq Pentium 166

Just keep in mind many VxD drivers, specially SBLive and Terratec ones, don't like to be used in ACPI environments and/or in tandem with other WDM drivers (capture, dvd decoding drivers, printers, scanner stuff etc). VxD drivers also don't like newer DirectX versions. If you will use VxD drivers …

Re: Compaq Pentium 166

In the meanwhile, Here is another issue. The system has a 2 gig hdd. I have tried to use a bigger HDD with the system, but when i use the win 98 startup disk, i run fdisk, and i get the message No fixed disk present. I have tried multiple hard drives. One was 40 gigs, one 500 gigs, one 80 gigs... …

Re: Compaq Pentium 166

The problem is you have installed the WDM driver instead of the Vxd one. With the WDM driver installed you have only generic SB DOS compatibility through Windows WDM driver infrastructure. The Vxd driver provides much better SB DOS compatibility through Creative's own SB 16 emulation . In case of …

Re: Compaq Pentium 166

"I put in a Sound Blaster Live 5.1 This wasnt originally in the system" Not in the system before no problem, in the system now problem now. The sound card is the culprit. Id suggest using a different sound card. besides have have never read anything good about SBLIVE on this forum from anyone. Most …
