    There was a bug in early windows 95, which might extend to early win98 - it was unable to boot if the clock was more than about 350MHz, due to an internal divide-by-zero error.

    You could (at the...

    FCBs were just a carry-over from CP/M. You're better off using file handles.

    If you just want to get some file into memory, just use debug. The file will be found starting at 0x100 at the current...

    It could be a Rockwell RM65-1000(E), and there's a fair amount of info on the web. The manuals seem to be harder to find though. Perhaps you could scan the ones in your photo.

    Perhaps you should get a TRS80 manual?

    To use disks on the TRS80 you have to boot the machine from the disk.

    @falter: Is there a chance you could get the crystal values for me? I can see at least 2, one on the video board near the voltage regulator, and one on the CPU board next to the INS8250N chip. Thanks!

    Changing as it warms up sounds like old capacitors. Replace any wax or paper capacitors on sight. Fortunately these old sets don't have too many parts compared to today's ones, so you may as well...

    First thing to try is unplugging all your drives and booting up. Rom BASIC should appear. If you're still out of memory, there must be some kind of hardware problem.

    If that works, plug in the...

    Looking for AIM65 cassette files

    I'm looking for cassette files from a real AIM65 (in WAV format). It doesn't even need to be a proper file - just a random memory dump would be enough.

    When the file is loaded into the AIM65, how...

    Generally, I consider a homebrew to be free, and either an original work or a hack of something existing.

    With arcade games, the situation is fairly simple. Companies produce and market the games...

    That's good to know - I'd only ever used consumer-grade windows.

    But the OP needs to supply much more info - we are left to guess.

    Your 3 links all point to bk01.jpg

    I tested this in MAME, and your problem occurs if the Control key is held while typing. Maybe the key is stuck down or shorted on your computer.

    Haven't seen any modern equivalents, and even if they existed they might not fit in.

    If your machine is 32-bit then don't bother with extra ram - they can't use it.

    The only other choice is if...

    The 6875 clock divider chip has been obsolete and difficult to get for many years. However you should be able to find a replacement circuit using a couple of other chips.

    Thanks Tezza for the information. I have about a dozen spare win7 machines on HP computers that are just sitting around doing nothing. Perhaps I should convert a few.

    I can't remember the exact name of the google updater, because I don't use Chrome on this computer, but let's assume it's called googleupdate.exe

    It's easy to stop Chrome updates. Look for...

    Remember, that mass outbreak of ransomware a few years ago wouldn't have happened if people had applied their updates. Microsoft had released a windows update patch 3 months earlier.

    McAfee 8.8.0 runs on XP and still gets updated virus signatures daily. Firefox only dropped support last year, so most sites are still browsable.
