    My DOS PC's speaker is kinda quiet. How would I go about increasing it's volume for games that only use that for sound? Would I have to replace the speaker itself?

    PC cutting power

    Sometimes my DOS PC cuts power. I think it might be because the power supply is old so I ordered a new AT PSU for it. Would it best for me to not use this computer until I put the new supply in. Don't want to risk ruining my hardware. (I think I just answered my own question. lol

    I'm getting fed up with trying to get this Gateway of mine working again. I just want to play some old games. Does not need to have a soundcard, it can be a bare system as long as it posts.

    Pentium II MMX and MS-DOS 6.22

    There's a great price for a Pentium II MMX 350mhz PC where the motherboard has USB. If I get it I would like to put MS-DOS 6.22 on it... even though it has USB. Which would just be ignored? I know there are no USB drivers or it? Or are there? Or on a machine like that should I use Windows...

    I currently have a mid 90's Mac that I would like to get some games on but every download gives me a stuffit file or a zip with files that my Windows 7 PC can't read.

    When I get my DOS PC back up and running I would wonder if there's something better than the Mach 64 PCI that I have installed (came with the PC). For some reason it couldn't do 640x480 in Quake even though I thought it was a VESA compatible card.
