Forum etiquette

Our mission ...

This forum is part of our mission to promote the preservation of vintage computers through education and outreach. (In real life we also run events and have a museum.) We encourage you to join us, participate, share your knowledge, and enjoy.

This forum has been around in this format for over 15 years. These rules and guidelines help us maintain a healthy and active community, and we moderate the forum to keep things on track. Please familiarize yourself with these rules and guidelines.


Remain civil and respectful

There are several hundred people who actively participate here. People come from all different backgrounds and will have different ways of seeing things. You will not agree with everything you read here. Back-and-forth discussions are fine but do not cross the line into rude or disrespectful behavior.

Conduct yourself as you would at any other place where people come together in person to discuss their hobby. If you wouldn't say something to somebody in person, then you probably should not be writing it here.

This should be obvious but, just in case: profanity, threats, slurs against any group (sexual, racial, gender, etc.) will not be tolerated.


Stay close to the original topic being discussed
  • If you are starting a new thread choose a reasonable sub-forum to start your thread. (If you choose incorrectly don't worry, we can fix that.)
  • If you are responding to a thread, stay on topic - the original poster was trying to achieve something. You can always start a new thread instead of potentially "hijacking" an existing thread.



Contribute something meaningful

To put things in engineering terms, we value a high signal to noise ratio. Coming here should not be a waste of time.
  • This is not a chat room. If you are taking less than 30 seconds to make a post then you are probably doing something wrong. A post should be on topic, clear, and contribute something meaningful to the discussion. If people read your posts and feel that their time as been wasted, they will stop reading your posts. Worse yet, they will stop visiting and we'll lose their experience and contributions.
  • Do not bump threads.
  • Do not "necro-post" unless you are following up to a specific person on a specific thread. And even then, that person may have moved on. Just start a new thread for your related topic.
  • Use the Private Message system for posts that are targeted at a specific person.


"PM Sent!" messages (or, how to use the Private Message system)

This forum has a private message feature that we want people to use for messages that are not of general interest to other members.

In short, if you are going to reply to a thread and that reply is targeted to a specific individual and not of interest to anybody else (either now or in the future) then send a private message instead.

Here are some obvious examples of when you should not reply to a thread and use the PM system instead:
  • "PM Sent!": Do not tell the rest of us that you sent a PM ... the forum software will tell the other person that they have a PM waiting.
  • "How much is shipping to ....": This is a very specific and directed question that is not of interest to anybody else.


Why do we have this policy? Sending a "PM Sent!" type message basically wastes everybody else's time by making them having to scroll past a post in a thread that looks to be updated, when the update is not meaningful. And the person you are sending the PM to will be notified by the forum software that they have a message waiting for them. Look up at the top near the right edge where it says 'Notifications' ... if you have a PM waiting, it will tell you there.

Copyright and other legal issues

We are here to discuss vintage computing, so discussing software, books, and other intellectual property that is on-topic is fine. We don't want people using these forums to discuss or enable copyright violations or other things that are against the law; whether you agree with the law or not is irrelevant. Do not use our resources for something that is legally or morally questionable.

Our discussions here generally fall under "fair use." Telling people how to pirate a software title is an example of something that is not allowable here.


Reporting problematic posts

If you see spam, a wildly off-topic post, or something abusive or illegal please report the thread by clicking on the "Report Post" icon. (It looks like an exclamation point in a triangle and it is available under every post.) This send a notification to all of the moderators, so somebody will see it and deal with it.

If you are unsure you may consider sending a private message to a moderator instead.


New user moderation

New users are directly moderated so that we can weed spammers out early. This means that for your first 10 posts you will have some delay before they are seen. We understand this can be disruptive to the flow of conversation and we try to keep up with our new user moderation duties to avoid undue inconvenience. Please do not make duplicate posts, extra posts to bump your post count, or ask the moderators to expedite this process; 10 moderated posts will go by quickly.

New users also have a smaller personal message inbox limit and are rate limited when sending PMs to other users.


Other suggestions
  • Use Google, books, or other definitive sources. There is a lot of information out there.
  • Don't make people guess at what you are trying to say; we are not mind readers. Be clear and concise.
  • Spelling and grammar are not rated, but they do make a post easier to read.

    Problem with Nforce ms-6367. Help me, please

    HI:

    I have a MSI ms-6367 (Chipset: Nforce 220D - IGP 64/12 motherboard. I bought a Althon XP 2200+ CPU but the motherboard detects it as Duron TM 1800MHZ.

    The Motherboard's manual says that it supports Athlon XP 2200+.

    My Bios Version is 1.3 (date: 07/09/04)

    How I solve this problem?

    Thanks.

    There are a bunch of other resources that would probably be better able to help with this type of problem.

    I'd suggest starting with MSI website and, perhaps, doing a Google search for other MSI or modern motherboard support areas.

    We're mostly concerned with vintage (10+ year old) stuff here.

    Good luck!

      However, it could be worthwhile to look in the BIOS settings for FSB. Your manual should tell you how. Since modern motherboards are set at the lowest supported speed not to damage your equipment, it may misinterpret your slow running CPU as something else than it is. I remember having similar issues with my AMD. Otherwise than that, I agree with Erik that there are better resources (but maybe not as friendly and forgiving) than this forum.

        Well, you could sell the whole works on eBay, and use the money to buy yourself a real (vintage) computer. (I have one for sale in the buying/selling section of this board).

          Well from the way things look here, we
          have someone who is asking in the
          approrate place, about what seems to
          be modern day hardware.

          Not a great way to start your posts
          here, since you've all hinted at the
          same thing (with: try elsewhere),
          though I guess they thought they
          were doing the right thing (well full
          credit for posting into the General - Off-
          Topic section).

          Terry, looking at you're statements it
          would be great if some of them got
          some Vintage Computers, though
          unfortunately due to the changing times
          a computer is required & while people
          may have to buy an IBM compable of
          some kind, it doesn't mean they want
          to.

          Looking at this problem, I'm assuming
          there's the matter of 400Mhz missing,
          which is just an annoying thing to have
          (like your cars engine isn't running on all
          Cylinders).

          First thought might be to take it to a
          computer technican to see if this
          processor works on their Mainboard &
          if so, at which speed?

          Is Duron a AMD processor, or is that an
          Intel or something else again?

          My second problem is this:

          > My Bios Version is 1.3 (date: 07/09/04)

          If you look carefully, you'll see this date
          isn't correct at all. If date = MM/DD/YYYY
          then July 9th 2004 hasn't come yet, or if
          you're like me & date = DD/MM/YYYY
          then 7th September 2004 hasn't even
          arrived. So if you're BIOS is saying this,
          then there's a big problem with it &
          perhaps you should get a computer
          technican to replace it.
          If it's just a common error (& you haven't
          stated the correct date), then the BIOS
          maybe an old one which needs to be
          replaced with a later version, cause it
          simply maybe a BIOS which doesn't
          support this CPU.

          Let us know how you get on!

          Cheers,

            CP/M User,

            Yeah, I keep an IBM-compatable around (don't we all?) for the same reason I bought my first IBM-PC for about 12 years ago--for surfing the net looking up vintage computer resources.
            BTW, I noticed that BIOS-date thing too, but I figgered it was just a typo.

            alex04,

            I appologeze if my comment sounded a little snippy, it wasn't meant that way at all. Actually, I was joking, but on second read, it may not be as obvious as I thought.

              Then we'd really need to establish when the BIOS
              was made, cause if it's older than the processor,
              then it may not support it.

              The way the processors came out here (in
              Australia) seemed like it was quite some time
              between a 1.8 Ghz processor & a 2.2Ghz,
              because when the 2.0 Ghz processor came it, it
              seemed like it was out for some time. Also for
              memory, the 2.0 Ghz processor was out when
              Sept 11 2001 terrorist attacks occured (cause I
              felt this slowed down the production of hardware).
              1.8 Ghz would have been out, but not the 2.2Ghz.
              So the way I see it, if the BIOS was made in 2002
              (instead of 2004), then it may not support 2.2Ghz
              processors (or it just depends on when the 2.2 Ghz
              processor came out too).

              Actually, I'm sorry, cause I thought you were being
              serious there.

                Yep, Duron is the budget version of Athlon (or used to be - I'm not sure how things will change for the future). Since I believe this is a kind of motherboard no longer produced (therefore vintage by a few months , I never considered the BIOS date which in reality probably reads 07/09/03.

                Actually I was looking into buying one of those boards last year, but as my retailer said they were going out of supply, were hard to find and inferior to newer products for the same money, I went for something else.

                  i have an msi motherboard ms6734 i would imagine its more or less the same.

                  according to the manual it supports amd athalon xp/athalon and duron.

                  i have a 1900mhz athalon installed in mine the motherboard reads correctly the only way i can see its reading wrong is u have a faulty motherboard.

                  i beleive on modern boards there is a way for the it to read the cpu type put in it and these msi boards are made for over clockers.

                  i tried fiddling with the speeds of the front side bus etc and i actually had it running slower but at no point did it display it as the wrong cpu.

                  so all i can think of is a your board is faulty or b you have been given the wrong chip.

                  i dont think there is an 1800mhz duron chip i think 1500mhz is as high as they go.
