Sorry for the mistake in the video everyone, the PC is actually a 1993 build. I just unearthed the original purchace recipit that was dated to the 25/8/1993.

One of the relics from the past that resides in my room is this 1993 custom build desktop. It originally ran windiws 3.1 but my dad updated it to 95 a few years later. Amazingly it was in use up until 2004 when my dad finally got a new desktop, 12 years of service isn't bad for a computer! When we moved house if it didn't fit in the truck it was going in the rented dumpster, not letting that happen! So now I have it in my room and run it every now and again and it still runs like I remember it despite it's 20+ year age.

The printer is a bit more modern than the computer but still makes an impressive set of 90's tech sounds, except for that loud crunch at the start (that's only the second time I hear dit make that noise). It does however load paper crookedly enough to tear it and the last time it printed anything would have been about 2006/7 so the heads are pretty blocked as well. It needs a bit of TLC to work properly but I plan to fix it up eventually.

Enjoy some nostalgia from the 90's :)


Wow, this video has absolutely exploded in popularity. I never would have guessed people would be that interested in what I have always been told was 'junk'. Thanks for the features!
