My nephew has a (very old ) computer, on which he plays games and homework.
It is now playing up and he has asked me to “have a look at it”. As I am only used to win 98 and XP I need some help to use WIN3.1 before I can do any thing with the machine. I was hoping someone could help me out by telling me how to use 3.1 or tell me a site I can go to get help?. Also what computer it is ??
The computer is: IBM 325T windows 3.1
PS valuepoint model C40
Type 6384

What is the issue?? Use google and type in win 3.1 and search there are many web sites on 3.1 but not knowing your issue its difficult to suggest one..

who know about Windows 3.1 and even DOS programs, but the grey cells are getting a bit greyer.

I would suggest you just do a clean reinstall of Windows 3.1 and all the progarms and games - you do have the installation disks I hope? The computer name doesn't mean anything to me. Probably more useful to know how much RAM, cpu type and speed, and hard drive capacity.
