NEC Versa 2000c CPU speed?
« on: December 10, 2010, 11:28:58 AM »
Ok so I have this old NEC Versa 2000c laptop computer running windows 95. I want to know the CPU or processor speed of this old computer. I know it have a pentium chip, becasue it has a intel inside sticker on it. If i enter the bios it only gives me the amount of ram i have which is 8 mb. Is there a way to find out using windows 95. When I right click my computer and hit properties It only gives me the RAM. Unlike in windows xp it gives me the CPu speed. This system has only 514mb Hdd and originaly booted win 3.1. It was updated before I got it. It still has all the original utilites installed. Any help is accepted.

If you type "NEC Versa 2000c" Pentium into Google you will quickly find out the answer. You will also find that on Computer Hope you asked the same question on July 12, 2010 and you were advised at that time to use Google. (Have you heard of search engines?)

Try Start - Run - Dxdiag

Or download CPU-Z

Why don't you just type "Windows 95 CPU speed" into Google? Please tell me. I really am curious.

Anyhow, now you know the cpu speed, why do you need to do this?

Obviously, so that if the processor slows down or speeds up, they know!  ::)

To do <what> is the question. Show your computer speed? you KNOW it's 75Mhz now. That is not going to change.

Use a Zip archiver which has disk spanning.

heh.. I didn't even notice that question. I've had to transfer some really big files to my ancient (~1994, PC-DOS 7) machine via floppy. It had pkunzip&company (a registered version from the person who gave me it) but for some reason I went along and wrote a VB6 program to split the files into 1440K chunks and a QuickBASIC program to put them back together. I can't remember why I didn't use the zip spanning method but I do remember having a good reason.

In any case, transferring files is more a burden of time then a limit on size.

If both machines have serial or parallel ports there's always Laplink or a free equivalent, except that you'd have to buy a cable.

ok two questions is parralel the cable we use for old printers and serial the little 9 pin ports? Because if so I have cable for both to connect. If u could show me how to do that. If we can connect win 95 to 98 and the 98 has usb so from usb to serial to win 95 would be great! How do i do it?

probably no to the former, yes to the latter; a Parallel Printer Cable has a parallel port plug on one end but the other uses a different plug (Centronics interface iirc) that really only plugs into printers.

For the serial connection you'd need software and a null-modem serial cable.

no for the printer I have 2 cables which have the same ends that plug to two computers  :) so it will work if you show me how to connect them.

The parallel cable which is required is sometimes called a "null-printer" cable. It is also often called a "Laplink cable".



Table of connections and note about possible cable change for Windows 95 Direct Connection here

http://www.nullmodem.com/LapLink.htm

Belkin ones cost about 12 US dollars.

You need: 1. a parallel port on each computer 2. Communications software on each computer. Windows prior to Vista should have this built in I believe.
