    GPU not showing BIOS

    Guessing the new card doesn't initialize quick enough, if you tap the normal key, it should still enter bios. A workaround is to do the following (Windows 10 instructions): Navigate to settings. ... Select Update & security. Select Recovery from the left menu. Click Restart Now under Advanced startup. ... Click Troubleshoot. Click Advanced options. Select UEFI Firmware Settings. Click Restart.

    use keyboard and mouse on 2 computers

    If you lose your mouse, just move to the left or the right Your only other real choice is a KVM or USB Switch, which would both most likely be more expensive.

    Synergy is configured in such a way that you can move your mouse off the left of the screen, it will jump to the other computer (or the right, or top, or bottom) - you don't NEED to have two screens at the same time, as far as synergy is concerned, the one monitor is two, as both machines are plugged into a display. If that makes more sense... So you're on PC #1 and want to switch to PC #2, just hit your input button, then move your mouse to the left a few times, and it will "pop" onto #2, and PC #2 takes control of the peripherals.

    You can just continue to use the physical input switch to swap the monitor from one to the other, and Synergy lets you keep your mouse/keyboard plugged into ONE of the machines, and used on both.

    LTT used to be sponsored by Synergy. Might still be occasionally. Works completely through software, works on any OS, and even mobile, as long as it's on the same network or has internet access. https://symless.com/synergy

    970 or 1060

    Ahh, I didn't localize the shipping, indeed. I understand. At least over here in the states the older R9's are the way to go. In your shoes, I'd take the 1060 over the 970, mostly because of age and more VRAM.

    Looks like about 130 euro for the same card I run (I run two, but still)... https://www.benl.ebay.be/itm/XFX-Radeon-R9-390-8GB-Graphics-Card-Working-Condition/163474516216?hash=item260fd728f8:g:l5wAAOSwrm5cM6fj:rk:20:pf:0

    Custom PC won’t start

    Take it all out and reassemble everything outside the case again. I'll bet it will work again.

    Could have a short between the bottom of the motherboard and the case. Sounds like something is shorted somewhere.

    970 or 1060

    Neither, if you're going used, grab up a R9 390( or 390X) or Fury X with 8GB Ram for $100, they're everywhere, cheap, and powerful.
  11. Remember that's only for MS-DOS 1.25 and 2.0. Meant for 8088 / 8086 class of CPU's. It would be missing all the utilities and capabilities that DOS 5.0+ would have, which you would really need for your Pentium-era machine. For a pentium class box, you'd really want DOS 6.22 or Windows 95 (Dos 7.0/7.1)
  12. Well, when people are discussing abandonware sites on Microsoft's technet forums and MS employees are pointing people to them, it seems the gray area is pretty much in the "You're good to go" category lol... However, if you want legit MS-DOS, and you want to be 100% legal under any question - you can find original disk sets on eBay, and that is 100% legal.
  13. I wouldn't think so, they operate in a legal gray area, but I know that Winworld PC has worked with Microsoft before and operates with (if not permission) agnosticism about it. Yes. PS/2 Model 25 - MGCA color.
