Well, I finally accomplished what I've been trying to do for quite a while now! I've completed the fixing of the Pentium II custom build that I've been fixing for a year now. You probably remember me mentioning this rig from a help thread I posted in February, and another thread I posted about this desktop in May. But I finally got to solve all of those problems and I now have a working retro rig! I just got a new power supply for the desktop and fixed the rig up in many ways, and it was a success! About this desktop, it's a custom build from 1998. My parents got it from a friend of their's a few years before I was born, so it was pretty much my first computer. But then, two years ago, I retrieved this rig, and it works again.
Motherboard: Intel E139761
CPU (processor): Intel Pentium II
Memory (RAM): Samsung 64MB SDRAM
Hard drive: Western Digital 60GB 3.5" IDE HDD
Power supply (PSW): Startech 250W power supply
Graphics card (GPU): Intel RHB740
Optical drive: Mitsumi CD-ROM drive
Floppy drive: Sony 3.5" floppy disk drive
Display: ViewSonic OptiQuest Q71 CRT
Keyboard: Dell QuietKey RT7D5JTW
Mouse: Microsoft Wheel Mouse v2.0
Operating system (OS): Windows 98
It did take no more than five minutes to boot up, it had some bugs and viruses and other crap that prevented it from starting up, but I just washed the entire system, and it now works successfully.
So yeah, this is something that I just accomplished, and this desktop now works great again!
