I run a classic DOS machine, and it's been around since I was around 1 year old at the time...

Specs:

80486DX2 (66 MHZ)
Trident SVGA Video (will get proper specs on this later)
AOC CM-335 Monitor
Yamaha Speakers (dunno which model)


Now for the Internal stuff:

ESS 1868 Sound card (i think...)
2 Floppy drives (one 3"1/2 Floppy Drive, and one 5 1/4" Floppy drive. The 5" drive is broken, but will get it repaired soon)
1 CD Drive (Has some issues, but nothing major)
2 HDD (C: 514 MB. D: 1.2 GB)

OS Stuff:

Windows 95 (Original 4.00.950 version)
AMI/MR BIOS (Dated Nov 11, 1992) The chip itself says MR BIOS on the chip surface, it boots up as an AMI build.


The machine runs any known DOS game great (the ones I have), it runs Duke3D and (barely) Shadow Warrior, but some games (like Death Rally) are so slow...so it might not be the best DOS machine out there to run DOS games, but it's the best machine in the house to run DOS type games.

I'll get screenies of the machine later....

It;s running windows 95c right now next to my older windows gaming computer next to the one I am using right now.
Right now to reboot it restets power
Hey whats that burning smell it smells like dead compaq 486 power pack.
OMFG The powerpack is smoking it looks liem it has just ignited no wonder this was only 10 bucks. dives under computer he is using right now and pulls 486's power out. Right you are going to the tip that happened 5min ago it the room stinks some smoke is still rising up bt it is not alight and well and truley dead.

Identifying the parts sure would be a great help.
