How to get back the motherboard beeps ? by R.Wieser
Hello all, Years and years ago I think I allowed my soundcard to "take over" the system-beeps that normally go to the motherboards buzzer, and I would now like to reverse the setting. I've got a small program just calling kernel32's "Beep" with different frequencies, but all I now get is a "ding"...

stop splash and boot dos by Bill Cunningham
How was it again that we can stop the splash screen? And you can boot into DOS without going to windows first. Is it with the win.ini file? It's been so long I forget. Bill

In which folder are the USB drivers stored in 98se? by [email protected]
In which folder are the 'INSTALLED' USB drivers stored in 98se? I got a driver file that is supposed to recognise all flash drives.(Whether it works is just a matter of trying it). Presently I can only access a few of these flash drives and they are all 4gb or less. I want to try this file, but I...

I'm running VLC for XP on Win98se by [email protected]
This is interesting. I installed VLC 2.0.5 (32 bit) on Windows 98se, and it works perfectly. This version is listed for XP and higher. It's not even supposed to work on Win 2000. The last version intended for Win98 was ver 1.0.2 from 2009. I wonder how this can be????

AOL is taking over my computer! by Ben Myers
It sounds like "mspaint.exe" and "wordpad.exe" have been removed from "C:\Program Files\Accessories", so you probably need to extract fresh copies of these files from your Windows 98 CD to that folder. To restore the shortcuts, start Notepad, copy and paste the following text to it and save it as...

Warning about Opera by [email protected]
I have never liked Opera, but since Firefox made using their extensions near impossible, I thought I'd give Opera another try. That was a mistake! Opera 10.63 is the last version that runs in Win98. I installed Opera 10.63 in Windows 98se, and rebooted. After the reboot, my screen went from...

Is there any browser for Win98 that can save Youtube Videos? by [email protected]
