Windows 7: My first modern CPU - do you have yours?

Gave our first comp away to a needy person, so don't have the cpu.

On a sponge behind me, i do have 3 cpu's.

1. SX419 (Intel 80486 33 MHz) SX419 (Intel 80486 33 MHz)

2. SZ904 (Intel 80486 upgrade 66 MHz) SZ904 (Intel 80486 upgrade 66 MHz)

Last but not least, the cream of the crop.

3. SZ996 (Intel Pentium 100 MHz) SZ996 (Intel Pentium 100 MHz)

Got a heap of much later procs, both Intel & AMD, still in mobo's, in running order.

i used to spend many happy hours typing in pages of long programs published in several magazines at the time - then spend a few less happy hours trying to debug, before finally being able to play/use the software - ah, the early eighties, those were the days...

i believe it is still somewhere in my parents' loft, along with my brother's vic20.

I did the same thing. I found magazines and books with pages and pages of code and spent hours typing it in. After hours and hours you could finally use the program, or find out you screwed up. haha (This was on an Appple IIc)

Pity that today's 'modern' operating systems do not include any

"programming language" to help those that "might" be interested...

(With, of course, an 'accurate' tutorial, or 'Help' file)

I can't c this happening -- its such a BASIC concept...

Mine had a green screen, so much more popular than that gaudy orange. :P

It seems that I get the BSOD the most when I am trying to run a game through the Steam application. Also when I try and use video recording software while playing this game. My drivers are up to date, and I have attached a DxDiag for anyone to view if it helps. Once in a while I will get it...
