I got my first computer back in 1996 thereabouts.

It had an AMD K6/2 233Mhz, 2MB SiS Video Board, 64MB of Ram, Unknown speed CD-Rom drive, a 3GB HDD. 1.4 Floppy Drive, and a 56k modem.

The PC survived two OS generations, it initially installed with Windows 95, and then eventually upgraded to Windows 98 2nd Edition. I even remember how this computer failed. Something to do with a strange E:\ drive with an unrecognized partition popping up one day which should have never existed. Trying to access it caused the computer to lock up and go into a repeatable blue screen loop and eventually did not even boot anymore.

Not sure what qualifies as a 'PC'. But this was the first computer my family had:

I honestly can't remember what it was. I didn't really get into computers until about 8 years ago and even then it was just for simple games at the start. All I can remember was it had a match game on it and a maze game.

Also looked something like this

Now the first pc I really remember I got in I think 2000 which was the family pc. It was a gateway with a 433mhz processor and no telling what amount of ram or what it used for graphics. It came with Windows 98se and I used that pc for so many years.

I can recall when I was 13, I bought an IBM 386sx for $895 AUD. It was my very first computer.

Of course, being young and inexperienced, I must of deleted some files that were needed,
and the computer wouldn't start after that. Eventually lost interest and threw it out.

Only until recently that I finally bought another computer. My second computer now. Luckily,
I've had plenty of experiences with computers over the ages, and now a lot more knowledge and know how to not stuff this one up.

When I was a kid, the family computer was some Packard Bell with a 233MHz Pentium, 64MB of RAM, 4GB hard drive, and Windows 95. Eventually my mother's friend upgraded it to Windows 98, and we later installed a CD burner. I still have the hard drive but the rest is long gone.

My first PC had a 233 MHz Pentium 2, 16 MB of RAM, a 2 Gb HDD and the normal peripheries like a 16X CD drive, a floppy drive and some crappy video card. Later on, I upgraded it to have 64 MB of RAM and a Voodoo 2.

All I remember is that it was a Packard Bell with Windows 95.
