You're sure its 1) format, 2) size and 3) resolution requirements are all okay?

Try to convert it to some other format and try again.

Alternatively, upload it on some image hosting site (or as an attachment in your email box), download it from there and try again.


Stop running, Whirly.

Change your damn avi.

@dude111

At least upgrade to Windows XP. You'll still be able to use your old browsers.

Out of curiosity, what processor are you running?

Dude loves that old operating system, there's no way you can convince him to upgrade.

Still, I believe there are some alternatives to MyIE2, such as old versions of K-Meleon or Opera --- but I can't be sure without testing it myself.

Seems like a hassle and the speeds must be cringe worthy.

Sure. It's quite rare these days. Assuming he's not trolling us, of course, but his screenshots and MyIE2 files he sent me once tell me he's probably not.

In the end, it depends on what you're using your computer for, really.

If he just wants it for KMC forums and, let's say, old games (which may not be fully compatible with newer OS, as Windows is really infamous for it) and writing some simple documents using MS Office 97, then hey, it's a good machine.

There are ways to bypass the RAM limit on old Windows-es, but that requires some tinkering.

Yeah, 98 has a max ram of 1gb. That's just inconceivable these days.

Your XP can at least hold what people consider a functional minimum these days, 16gb. I'm assuming you're running 64bit XP.

I'm a proud owner of the 32-bit XP machine, actually.

64-bit XP has a lot of issues in different areas. And by that I mean, it's much harder to find & download modernized software for it.

Such as using a browser mimicking the functionality of Chrome (version 87.0.4280.66) from the end of year 2020. Meaning most sites work as they should. Including the web conferencing ("webinars"), so crazy popular now in the era of COVID-19.

Unless we're talking about video games or advanced programs, then there is no trouble doing the usual web-browsing, instant messaging, video watching stuff with much less RAM. Keep in mind XP in itself is not a very resource consuming system, unlike its successors.

Of course, the right virtual memory settings and a good video card do contribute a lot.

Anyway, bypassing the RAM limit is not impossible:

Even for Windows 98 (to a much lesser degree, but still):

Dude told me once how he downloads the YouTube videos if he wishes to see them --- seems like too much hassle, as you said earlier, but if it works for his needs... then who are we to judge?

Ya Im glad I dont do very much Rob,I only have 64Megs of Ram and 8 are shared with the monitor so really I only have 56.8 or so (Plus the swap file which sometimes gets huge)

Why does 98/98se only have a 1GB limit does anyone know?

You never thought of trying to bypass said limit, as described above?

If you don't feel like doing it yourself, ask in a few computer shops - they shouldn't charge you too much for it.

I suppose anything is possible if someone really wants to do it...

They probably figured 98 doesnt need that much ram because its smaller in size than the later OS's,I dunno.......

Welcome back to KMC.

Almost anything, yes.

Needless to say, many old OS would be much more popular if they weren't deprived of the official support.
