Hardware Compatibility List

That HCL is a guideline that Microsoft uses to make sure that this hardware has been tested with the OS and is able to work with the drivers supplied from the manufacture or from Microsoft.  Please check this list to make sure that your hardware is compatible with this version of Windows.  This list cam be found at this web site http://www.microsoft.com/hcl

 

Updating Security and Windows Software

To update all of your windows software to get the latest security fixes and software updates for windows go to this web address. http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com

 

My CD Recording software stopped working when I upgraded Windows Media Player

If you are using Adaptec Easy CD Creator to burn CDs on your computer you will have to install the patches for your current version to make Easy CD Creator work again.  You can download the patches from http://www.adaptec.com or http://www.roxio.com

 

You can customize your Windows 95 Startup screen by following the instructions listed below.  Make sure you adhere to the picture dimensions and amount of colors in the pictures.  If you go beyond any of the limitations the picture will not load when your turn on your computer.

Your picture will display on a 640X480 screen, but the file must be a 320x400 pixels dimension.  The picture can have 256 colors or less.  It must be in a BMP file format.  Any other file format doesn't work.  Then save your picture in the root directory of your computer C:\ and change the name of it to logo.sys.  Then right click on the file and select Properties, and make the file a system, and hidden file.  Now when you reboot you will have your startup screen instead of Microsoft's.  Have fun.

NOTE: This doesn't work with Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 Professional, of any version of Windows XP.

How to Install Windows using the CD-ROM support boot floppy

Download the Boot floppy image and WinImage software if you do don't already have a boot floppy to install windows.  These instructions will get you to the point where the install has entered the Windows environment.  The rest of the way will change depending on what hardware and setting you want to make on your system.  This install Process will delete everything on your system.  Make sure you have a backup of what you want to keep before you follow these instructions.

  3. at the a:\> Prompt Type FDISK
  4. pick yes to support Large Partitions

  6. after all of the partitions are removed and you are back at the main FDISK screen, pick Option 1 Create Partition.
  7. Maximize the partition, unless you want to install multiple Operating Systems on your system.
  8. after that is done, press esc to get back to the A:\> Prompt
  9. Press <CTRL> <ATL> <Delete> keys to reboot the computer.
  10. No when prompted use NEC CD-ROM on boot unless you have a different DVD or other drive listed.

  22. Press any key to run scandisk on the system

Why can't people connect to my IP address.

Most likely you have a non-routable IP address.  This means that the IP address can't be connected to from the internet.  You will need to use a live IP address or find the settings on your router or firewall to setup NAT services so people can connect to your IP address.  Here is a list of IP addresses that are not routable over the internet.  If you are using anyone of these IP addresses you will run into this problem.

These are RFC1918 These are IP addresses that the people that designed IP addresses said these will never be routed over the internet.  That way you can have a private network.
