- This is basically a page listing the old cards/mobos/etc I have -
- along with links to major sources of info/drivers/etc. for them -


[April 2, 2004]

Stumbled upon http://www.osuweb.net/~ahaning/totalhardware99/ and am in awe. :) Now adding links to pages from the Total Hardware 1999 mirror on http://th99.pley.org for stuff here that exists in it. Don't blame me if anything here is wrong and you blow up the house :)


[March 10, 2004]

Moved more stuff to here finally.



Premio 212B - (OEM version of MSI's MS-6112)
Premio -=- Slot 1 440LX -=- BIOS ver 1.6B6 (Last released)
-=> Currently fitted with a Celeron 300a CPU (75mhz FSB for 337.5mhz) and 384MB RAM (3x128)
-=> http://www.premiopc.com/discontinued/support/212bfaq.html

-=> http://th99.pley.org/m/M-O/34776.htm

KT400 Dragon Ultra (Platinum Edition)
Soyo -=- VIA KT400 Socket A -=- BIOS: (dunno yet :P)
-=> http://www.soyousa.com/products/proddesc.php?id=176
-=> http://www.soyousa.com/images/products/800x600/kt400_mb_withspecs.jpg
-=> http://www.soyousa.com/downloads/filedesc.php?id=1961 - Manual
-=> http://www.soyousa.com/downloads/selectresults.php?col2=176&col3=All - Everything else

MS-6337 Lite / MS-6337LE V3.0
MSI -=- 815EP Socket 370 -=- W6337MS V3.3 04/20/2001-i815EP-W83627-6A69RM4EC-00
-=> *DEAD*
-=> http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_detail.php?UID=130&MODEL=MS-6337LE
-=> Currently fitted with a 733mhz Celeron II CPU
-=> [USELESS OCing INFO] System will boot (and run Win98SE) here fine with an 85mhz FSB with slight random read errors from the CDROM...problem goes away at 84mhz. Anything over 66mhz seems to be causing certain games to lock up eventually (any GLQuake port, for example). Setting an 86mhz FSB or higher using the BIOS menu and the system will refuse to POST, requiring a clearing of the CMOS :P The onboard sound fails to work whenever the PCI bus is more than 1 or 2 mhz away from spec when overclocking.
-=> [MORE USELESS INFO] Seems that setting AGP to 2X instead of 4X cured the weird random lockups I'd get in most 3D accelerated games/etc :)
-=> I never realized there could be so many damned variants of a motherboard where they all share the same part number (In this case, "MS-6337") :)

S1845 - Trinity 400
Tyan -=- VIA Apollo Pro 133A PPGA Socket 370 -and- Slot 1 -=- (no BIOS info)
-=> http://www.tyan.com/archive/products/html/trinity400.html
-=> [OLD] http://www.tyan.com/products/html/trinity400.html
-=> Fitted with a PIII-866 (from what I can tell by current jumper settings) and 384MB PC-133 (3x128)
-=> Now in use as alternate/backup box and running fine. :P

K7KX-A Rev 1.01
Tekram -=- VIA KX133 Slot A -=- Latest BIOS (1.02 - 12/19/00)
-=> Can't get through a Windows install...random lockups/crashes no matter what ram/video card/etc is in
-=> http://www.tekram.com/Hot_Products.asp?Product=K7KX-A
-=> Fitted with an Athlon 900 - AMDK7950MNR538

-=> http://th99.pley.org/m/A-B/34555.htm



MSI -=- GeForce3 Ti200 64mb -=- BIOS v3.
-=> ???
-=> I can't find any proof that MSI ever even manufactured this card, except for the markings on it, tons of places selling it, and the occasional appearance in someone's system specs. There's no official page for it or anything...very odd. Card has heatsink only, VGA out, RCA out, and S-Video out, which doesn't match the layout of any of MSI's other listed GF3Ti200 cards
-=> ...annnnd, more proof that it's from Germany or something: I noticed that the TV-Out on bootup is in PAL format :P

VC300 - CL-GD5422
Reveal -=- (SVGA 1MB) -=- 16-bit ISA
-=> http://www.driverzone.com/drivers/reveal/vc/
-=> http://www1.vobis.de/bbs/firmen/reveal/vc/
-=> http://th99.pley.org/v/P-R/53956.htm

VGA Wonder XL24 - 28800-6
ATI -=- (SVGA 1MB) -=- 16-bit ISA
-=> http://mirror.ati.com/support/products/pc/vgawonder/vgawonderdrivers.html
-=> Seems to cause my Amptron DX-9700 board to not boot 9/10 attempts

Arcade FX - 3D128
Best Data -=- (Voodoo 1 4MB) -=- PCI
-=> Best Data removed http://www.bestdata.com/tech/arcadefxwin95.htm, but http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.bestdata.com/tech/arcadefxwin95.htm is a mirror of some of it :/

3D Blaster Voodoo - ???
Creative -=- (Voodoo 1 4MB) -=- PCI
-=> I'm currently unable to locate this card :/
-=> Had a weird hardware problem when I got it making it unusable...it seemed like there was no horizontal sync

3D Blaster Voodoo2 - CT6670
Creative -=- (Voodoo 2 8MB) -=- PCI
-=> http://www.americas.creative.com/support/welcome.asp?centric=23

Fire GL 1000
Diamond -=- (Permedia 4MB) -=- PCI
-=> http://www.diamondmm.com/support/diamond/default.asp?menu=support&submenu=Legacy_FireGL&product=FireGL_1000
-=> ftp://ftp.diamondmm.com/pub/display/fire-gl/fire-gl-1000/
-=> http://th99.pley.org/v/C-D/53340.htm
-=> The FINAL driver set removed OpenGL support (from a card with GL in the name!). firegl1000_w95_5.exe is the next to last set, and the last one to support OpenGL

Apollo 7400
Joytech -=- (Intel I740 8MB) -=- AGP
-=> Seems to be flakey now...damaged? :(
-=> http://www.joytech.com/product/pd_7400.htm
-=> http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df/Product_Filter.asp?ProductID=76



Sound Blaster AWE64 Gold - CT4390
Creative -=- BEST...CARD...EVER! :) -=- 16-bit ISA
-=> http://www.americas.creative.com/support/welcome.asp?centric=14
-=> http://th99.pley.org/i/C-D/53387.htm
-=> http://www.maz-sound.com/awe.html
-=> (For 99% of the DOS games/etc out there, you won't need the memory-eating .sys drivers that end up in your config.sys if you use Creative's installers...you just need the AWEUTIL and DIAGNOSE lines they put in the autoexec.bat so that you get a correct SET BLASTER= line set)

Monster Sound (Original)
Diamond Multimedia -=- Aureal A3D 1.0/2MB wavetable -=- PCI
-=> http://www.sonicblue.com/support/diamond/default.asp?menu=support&submenu=Legacy_Audio&product=MonsterSound
-=> ftp://ftp.diamondmm.com/pub/multimedia/monster-sound/
-=> Usually has trouble with games that use DirectSound 3D (hardware) or A3D sound...there will be random missing sounds or voices, or none at all. To "fix" this temporarily for games that exhibit this, you can use the Monster Sound control panel (the one that comes with the drivers), go to the Preferences tab, and put the Acceleration Level slider all the way to the left (Min). It won't be as fast, but at least you'll get all the sounds.
-=> Card also seems to have a problem -sampling- from Line In. Anything recorded from it has a high-pitched whine or whistle, while the sound coming in to it doesn't have it...it only appears when recording, and it's not a feedback loop/mixer setting/etc. problem :/ This is a problem with the card since said whine/whistle doesn't happen with the onboard sound and didn't happen with other cards.

Gallant -=- (SB Pro 2.0 Clone) -=- 16-bit ISA
-=> http://www.gallantcom.com/audiodriver-old.html
-=> http://www.er.uqam.ca/nobel/m237636/sc-6000.html - Down? >> [ARCHIVE]
-=> http://members.tripod.com/~accw/gallant.html
-=> Card says SC-6000, but the chip # is from the SC-6600 (4231A), and the SC-6600 DOS driver worked fine

SC100 Sound FX Basic - (restamped Aztech Sound Galaxy NX Pro?)
Reveal -=- (SB clone) -=- 8-bit ISA
-=> http://ellingson.com/reveal/products/sound/sc100/
-=> http://www.driverzone.com/drivers/reveal/sc100/
-=> http://th99.pley.org/i/P-R/53940.htm
-=> There's 2 of these. :P

The Sound Source - S1SB00100
Walt Disney Computer Software, INC. -=- (DA converter) -=- 25pin Parallel
-=> http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=%2B%22sndsrc.zip%22 (7.1k) - Sound Source driver for Win 3.x, but works in 9x :)
-=> http://www.mobygames.com/attribute/sheet/attributeId,44/ - Incomplete list of games that supported the Sound Source
-=> (Referred to as a 'Disney Sound Source' in most games that supported it) -=> I'll add pinouts of the phone jack->25 pin D-Sub cable/connecter (it says 'Sound Converter' in a sillouette of Mickey's head on it) soon



Sportster 33.6k PnP Internal - Model 0432 - 00084003
USR/USRobotics -=- 33.6k Data/Fax modem -=- 8-bit ISA
-=> http://www.usr.com/support/drivers-template.asp?prod=s-modem - Find "00084003"
-=> ftp://ftp.usr.com/usr/dl07/mdm3com.inf

Sportster 56k Voice Internal (OEM) - Model 0484 - 661749-81
USR/USRobotics -=- 56k Voice modem -=- 8-bit ISA
-=> http://www.usrobotics.com/support/s-modem/s-modem-oem-downloads.asp - (Pick 1749)...1749.EXE (an SFX zip) inside the zip contains the .INFs for Windows
-=> http://www.modem-help.co.uk/mfc/usr.html#661749
-=> Possibly http://th99.pley.org/t/0-9/54173.htm

ZOOM/FAXMODEM 56Kx Dualmode - Model 2948L
ZOOM -=- 56k v.90/Flex -=- External Serial
-=> http://www.zoomtel.com/ts1/analog/v90lucent.shtml
-=> Yay for changing a part # based on the software it came with: 2945L (Mac), 2948L (PC & Mac), Model 2949L (PC), 1144L (OEM)
-=> 9VDC - 800mA - Positive center :P
-=> Flashed using the 3049L firmware after a bit of .INF fiddling, adding V.92 support. See http://www.modemsite.com/56k/venus.asp (under the V.92 header) for brief info.

EtherCard Elite16 Ultra - 8216T (Pair)
SMC -=- 10BASE-T NIC -=- 16-bit ISA
-=> http://www.smc-europe.com/english/support/driver_manual/adapter/8216.html
-=> Windows for Workgroups 3.11 required "EMMExclude=D000-DFFF" under the [386enh] section in SYSTEM.INI in order to work on my PS/1-D50
-=> Total Hardware 1999 lists this weird. http://th99.pley.org/n/S-T/40707.htm is the card, but http://th99.pley.org/n/S-T/41300.htm is under the listing for the correct model #...and it has no jump listed.

Messenger -=- v.90/K56flex 56k WinModem -=- PCI
-=> Was http://www.macsysco.com/product/prointroduce/modem/internal/softmodem.htm (down?)
-=> http://www.modem-help.co.uk/mfc/mac.html

Supermodem 2400 - SM-24HN/R1 ("Model: SM-24HN/R" on back)
GVC? -=- 2400 baud internal modem -=- 8-bit ISA
-=> Can't find any other info on this...it came stock in the DisneyBox :P
-=> Main chip is from Rockwell: RC224AT/1 -=- R6622-17



WDC AC31000H
Western Digital -=- 1.2 GB HDD -=- IDE

WDC AC26400B
Western Digital -=- 6 GB HDD -=- IDE
-=> http://th99.pley.org/h/txt/5119.txt

Quantum -=- 6 GB HDD -=- IDE

CD-RW Blaster - 8438E - Firmware: FC02 (F:)
Creative -=- 8x4x32 CDRW -=- IDE
-=> DEAD :/ (only generates CDs with tons of unreadable/`weak' sectors now)
-=> http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=%2BCreative+%2B8438E - Mostly horror stories
-=> http://www.geocities.com/reflash8435/" - Make **SURE** to read the "Great problem!" section along with the normal 8438 section as they point out that you can ONLY flash/update the Hong Kong model...trying to flash others will result in a dead drive due to some weird protection
-=> *NOT* the same as the 8432 or 8432E, even though they came in the same box/etc. These are a rebadged Samsung SW-208F with a custom rom, and (non Hong Kong models) -can NOT- be flashed for support in things like CloneCD and other programs that can use advanced writing techniques. There's lots of messages out there from people angry with Creative for substituting an awesome drive with this model and not changing the packaging/etc.
-=> Works totally perfect for normal burning of backups/CD images (without subchannel data)/etc. though :)
