    Can I be in? :)

    Processor: Celeron 333Mhz Mendocino
    Ram: 128MB DDR SDRAM PC100
    Graphics: Nvidia Vanta 16MB (AGP)
    Motherboard: Soltek SL-62C
    Sound Card: Aztech AZT 2320 (ISA)
    HDD: Samsung 5400rpm 6GB.

    I get nearly un-recognisable fonts in cpu-z as you can see below, no matter which font type and size I make my settings they remain the same. :confused:

    Edit: This is useful -- get your USB pendrive work under Windows 98!

    This thread needs a bump and an update. :)

    Do you play games on your old computers?
    I reminisced a bit by installing some games which I used to be really hooked on some years ago.... Jill of the Jungle and Prince of Persia, the first one... They're free to download as abandonware today :laugh:

    It's surprising how in my memory these games are envisaged as having awesome sound and graphics :wtf: imagine my surprise when for Prince of Persia I heard the tune and sounds coming out of the pc speaker even though I got speakers attached!

    As an update, I'm about to acquire 2 computers which really qualify as old. My dad is an enthusiast of old radio transmitters (got a whole hall full of them) and amongst some stuff he once bought 20 years ago there are these 2 pc's which he's going to give to me. He said they worked... 20 years ago... :rolleyes: but anyway. I have never seen them so far but they're the ones which have the monitor, tower and keyboard into one single unit.

    As I said I don't know the model or any of the specs but from his description I take it they're something like the following picture but their 'case' is green:

    As soon as I get them here I'll put up a couple of photos in this thread, check if they work and try to find out about the specs. He says he's even got all their manuals! :)
