  1. I usually paste any text copied from a web page into notepad, this is because of hidden formatting, links etc. contained within the webpage.
  2. My guess is that it's an HP machine with some automated backup installed, this has been filling a partition of you main C drive over time. If you can find the program then you can deactivate it, or uninstall it. Another solution is to increase the partition size.
  3. It will work no matter what, just not to 200mb.
  4. Finding a decent AGP could be expensive, Voodoo cards are in demand by retro gamers, something like a TNT2 maybe more affordable or even things more powerful but you're gonna have AGP voltage problems early AGP slots were 3.3v later ones 1.5v or 0.8v
  5. My guess would be that it's using a hidden partition to do backups to. Have a look for automatic backup.
  6. Although not cost effective for the job in hand i have these in the garage for various jobs and they also remove TIM. https://www.wickes.co.uk/Wickes-Multi-Purpose-Decorators-Wipes-Tub-of-80/p/154808
  7. Medieval Total War collection is on Steam atm for £6.99. Says Recomended Windows 7 or 8 but i find most games on steam run fine on Windows 10.
  8. The lead shouldn't make any difference, if it prints it should scan. More likely to be a software issue. The scanner software is avaliable on the epson site (I downloaded it for that exact model last week)
  9. I have seen this problem recently although not quite as you describe. The problem was with word 2007 & the Update. Everytime a document was opened word would run setup, so i did a quick fix by renaming the setup.exe file. C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\OFFICE12\Office Setup Controller and rename the SETUP.EXE to NOSETUP.EXE worked fine, so far.
  10. I know it's sad, but i have most fun hunting down drivers and getting them to work, trying different cards and boot options. Plug and play is great, but i do like solving an IRQ conflict. And i love the old blocky graphics of DOS games.
  11. Whilst re-jigging my computer room, (box room really) i knocked a PSU onto my DOS Machine motherboard and although i see no damage now i can't get it to boot. (small lie there, i now see a bulging capacitor). It was a VIA EPIA-M 900Mhz ITX board and was running using a PICO PSU, with DOS and Windows 3.11 on an SD Card. I was planning a CF card booting Win98SE after xmas. Drivers etc have been a pain to aquire but it was a fun project i kept going back to. Now comes the ask... Does anyone have a socket 370 or 478 motherboard going spare, preferably with a CPU somewhere between 500Mhz and 1Ghz. Must be IDE which i think they all were. I can probably do a swap for some spare parts if required, may have a 775 motherboard and CPU. And before anyone suggests DOSBox, i enjoy the building. Thanks
  12. Yep, and if you check now lowest is 0C, it's forcasting so really it's an educated guess and will change several times a day, but my observation was that you don't need to panic, it's just november and it's cold but it's not sub-arctic.
  13. Where does all this rubbish come from, Met office for sheffield for the next 7 days doesn't give a temp below 1 degree although there is a warning of icy conditions overnight saturday and sunday. Moscow forcast is for -3 to -4. It's November sounds like typical conditions to me.
