Just reload Windows 98, all your files should still be available but you may have to hunt for them.
== == No. Expecting such a thing is dangerous. Expect the unexpected, and drive defensively. Assume the driver in front is going to slam on the brakes without warning, and drive accordingly. The average car takes from 130-150 feet to stop at a speed of 60 mph in good conditions on dry pavement. Double that on a wet road, and triple it on snow. Tailgating is one of the most irresponsible things a driver can… Read More
Hello, To upgrade from Windows 98 to Windows XP first make sure you have the correct system requirements: - at least a Pentium 3 (or equivalent) - at least 512Mb of ram - at least 10GB of HDD Then simply buy Windows XP software and follow the upgrade instructions. Normally you will not lose any application nor any documents (and files) stored on your computer. However not all applications you had installed will work on… Read More
First you will need to obtain you copy of Windows XP. Its ok if its not sp2 just as long as you are using a legal key. Windows XP has Automatic Updates that will download service pack 2 and even 3 for you. Next you will need to check you bios' boot device order. To do this reboot the computer. When the first screen comes up it will usually say which button to hit to… Read More
An unmanaged switch is a switch that has no IP address associated with it. Once a switch is given an IP address it is then considered a managed switch.
Increasing your RAM will make a major difference. Each program you run requires a specific amount of RAM usage at one time. The more RAM a user has will cause the computer to run more smoother, and should make programs open up faster. Each RAM stick has a sector that holds all physical activity, so increasing the RAM will make the RAM usage not switch as often since you'll have more to use. Another answer… Read More
Formatting a hard drive in Window XP can be divided into two categories: 1) Formatting the System Drive (Drive in which Operating System is Installed). 2) Formatting any other Drive. How to: Steps for Formatting the System Drive: 1) From BIOS (System Setup Utility) Choose CD/DVD Drive as your first boot device. 2) Insert installation CD of Windows XP in the CD/DVD Drive. 3) Restart the system. 4) The message "Press any key to boot… Read More

The capacity of the external drive is 120 gigabytes. I will install Spam filter. How do I install Virus protection software on Mac?
It's the System folder. But if you are looking for windows/dos commands you'll find them in the Command folder
Shut the computer down completely, then turn it on again. As soon as you see the 'Windows 98' screen, begin pressing the F5 key about once a second. This should cause Windows to boot into Safe Mode. If it does not, shut the computer down again, and begin pressing the F5 key immediately after turning it on. Once in Safe Mode, right click on the 'my computer' icon, and select 'device manager'. Look for any… Read More
According to Microsoft, you can't. But you can in a COMMAND window (or a CMD window in which you run COMMAND) as long as you include ANSI.sys in the SYSTEM32\CONFIG.NT file. I have tried this in Win2k and it works - to a degree.
MS DOS (Microsoft Disk Operating System) is an operating system where you can type in a command and it will be sent directly to the computer, MS-DOS is also known as a CLI (command line interface). If you want the computer to do something, you will have to type in a command. if the command is not recognised, the function will not be performed. Windows: Windows is a GUI (graphical user interface) anything you want… Read More
Upgrading to Windows XP is easy if you have the computer that can do it. The actual minimum install is at least 2x the minimum Microsoft recommends. You may be able to install it but it will run very slow. I can't see exactly what is happening to your computer but I hope you have backed it up. If your important files are backed up, you can set your CMOS to boot from a floppy… Read More
I would start at microsoft.com, look for support, then search for your problem in their knowledge base. hope that helps
Make sure that u r installing the program on the ACTIVE partition (the one the computer boots from, this should be letter C:) Make sure that this is the command u type in: "Format C: /s" (u don't type the "). When installing run "setup.exe" from drive D (this should be ur CD drive). The following are step by step instructions: Obtain a windows 98 startup disk. Insert it into your floppy drive and restart… Read More
Biopiracy is the illegal appropriation of life -- microorganisms, plants and animals (including humans) -- and the traditional cultural knowledge that accompanies it. Biopiracy is illegal because, in violation of international conventions and (where these exist) corresponding domestic laws, it does not recognize, respect or adequately compensate the rightful owners of the life forms appropriated or the traditional knowledge related to their propagation, use and commercial benefit. Biopiracy commonly operates through the application of Intellectual… Read More
MS-DOS uses far less RAM and can be used on much lower-end computers. It can be booted in far less time than Windows XP, uses less space on a hard drive (if you even use one), and applications can be launched just by typing their name.
If you only have one hard drive, you have to create two or more partitions for every "instance" of Windows (or any other OS for that matter) you want to install. Just google for partition manager or something. Then you have to start the installation process (booting from Windows XP CD) and select the proper partition for installation. Repeat the above procedure for second partition and there you have it. You will probably need to… Read More
The best solution is to upgrade to the Windows replacement, General CADD Pro. You can find a free download at www.generalcadd.com
Most Linux distributions have a software repository that you can access like an App Store, most of which are Free/Open Source Software (F/OSS) but there are notable exceptions such as Ubuntu Software Center that also provide commercial software. The software in a repository tends to be designed to work with that particular distribution and that particular version, so is always the first place to go for new software
It means the drive isn't a psychical drive, so it is a digital drive. If you have for example an iso file, you can let the computer think you have burned it on a disc and put it in the computer. It saves quite some money :P
Operating systems are software written to provide a way to manage system resources and to provide a interface for the user to interact with and operate the computer.
In NT 4, there are primary domain controllers (PDCs) and backup domain controllers (BDCs). Only one PDC can exist per domain. The PDC hosts a read/write copy of the domain database, and the BDCs each house a read-only version of the same information, thus providing some measure of redundancy and infrastructure scalability. But in the event of a loss of the PDC, you can't make changes to the domain until you replace it. However, users… Read More
Once CD's have data put on them, it cannot be erased. On rewritable CD's, the reflective layer on the bottom of the disc is a different compound that, when hit by the CD drive's laser at increased power, will melt, erasing data so something else can be written in its place.
Windows 98 will support a maximum of nine monitors.
Audio quite simply is sound. It is typically used to refer to sound that is transmitted, recorded, or reproduced.
98 worked. ME didn't.
FAT32 and FAT16
Passwords are completely useless in Windows 98. If you would like to recover a personal profile, all you need to do is delete the password file. It will be follow the syntax of USERNAME.PWL, where [USERNAME] is the name you log in with. Just delete this file. Then log in using a blank password, and change it in the Control Panel.
Before upgrading the operating system, check the minimum requirements of the new operating system to ensure that the computer meets the minimum specifications required. Check the HCL to ensure that the hardware is compatible with the new operating system. Back up all data before upgrading the operating system in case there is a problem with the installation.
Remove the inner door panel and lubricate all moving parts - with grease or graphite lubricant, if this does not help, the window frame in the door may be bent slightly.

You can't run a 6V 75A (450W) light off a 12V 2.5A (30W) battery for any significant length of time. That battery is grossly undersized. I think that's supposed to be "0.75A" instead of "75A." I found a 75-watt light bulb on the internet, but 75 amps? You could weld with that much power. And I like the answer right below this one best: just wire two of these bulbs in series. The answer is… Read More

The issue is the video card driver either isn't installed correctly, or the monitor isn't being seen correctly with the right driver. The most common problem is the video card driver. Go to Device Manager, and right click the video card, and select UNINSTALL. then reboot your computer, and it should reinstall automatically
You can take off applications that you want to keep but you must have a good means of storing that application like with a zip drive or flash USB storage device. Can I ask a question, what do you mean when you say "take everything off" in computer terms that means a "format" which means you will be formatting your hard drive which will remove EVERYTHING, I mean start you from the beginning. This means… Read More
To reformat your hand drive using Win98 you need a Win98 boot floppy with reformat and fdisk options on it. To get started, insert the floppy and reboot the system. After the boot you will get a screen that asks you if you want to start windows with CD-Rom support, press the shift and F5 keys and you will get the prompt (a:\) type format c:/s This will reformat your hard drive with the system… Read More
If you installed Windows XP in this method you can downgrade. That is, if you upgraded Windows XP from Windows 98 SE means you can downgrade Windows XP by removing Windows XP in Control panel, Add/Remove programs. Then the first Operating System (windows 98Se) will come. I've had to do this many times at my work. The best way is to boot with a 98 bootdisk then use fdisk to wipe the hard drive. Then… Read More

I am going to assume you meant Windows ME to WIndows XP Home ED? One thing I HIGHLY suggest doing is perform a low level format because if you try and upgrade from Windows ME to Windows XP you are going to have some serious .dll issues and all kinds of errors. Windows ME was not a stable OS and Microsoft admitted to that, this is why people choose not to run Windows ME. Research… Read More
There is no way to downgrade from Windows XP to Windows 98 without formatting.
There are a number of programs you can buy to facilitate this. Both a partition and a CD are possible, but the partition is a bit riskier. I have not done this in several years, but I ran into problems with what to do when I decided I did not want the partition anymore. Anyway, try looking at buying a program. The CD method is sometimes called imaging the harddrive or ghosting it.
No. Unlike in previous versions of Windows, there is no possibility of "uninstalling" Windows XP. The reason is that in most upgrades, Windows XP converts the file system on the hard drive to NTFS. This file system does not work with Windows 98, and it is very difficult to convert back. Even if the above were not the case, a system that shipped with Windows XP wouldn't contain the operating system files of Windows 98… Read More
Assuming your "d drive" is a CD-ROM drive, you can boot from the Windows XP install disk. This disk contains utilities that are very easy to use that will format and prepare the drives for installation of Windows XP. If your computer doesn't boot from the CD, you'll need to go into "setup" (usually by pressing a button when the computer first starts ie "Press DEL to enter Setup"), and find an option that says… Read More
Start-programs-accesories-system tools-system information-tools-system configuration utility-startup- From there you can see what is being loaded up at startup. You can also check/uncheck the programs you don't want. There is a chance that your machine may not have this function, if it wasn't loaded during the machine's setup. If not, then you will have to go and get it off the 98SE CD. The startup configuration utility can also be started by going to the 'Run' item… Read More
Just start the windows 98 setup from DOS, the CD comes with an installation diskette or you can boot off of the CD-ROM, and choose the second drive as the installation directory. After setup is complete, you will get a menu every time you turn on the computer to choose which OS you want to use. The only way to use them simultaneously is to get special hardware that lets you switch.
If you mean reformatting the hard drive, then go to start>shutdown>restart in DOS mode>okay. Your computer will reboot and stop just short of loading Windows. Type in "format c:" (without the quotes)and press enter. I think this will work;if it doesn't, try "fdisk" and remove the DOS partition. NOTE: Before doing either one, make sure you copy anything you want to keep onto a floppy disk or CD since this will erase all data on… Read More
I don't think so ComputerDoc thinks that it can be done. Yes it is possible to repair without the original disk. You can get a new XP Home disk and do a repair install. The best instructions on doing an XP repair install are here http://michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm You can also get an automated repair done that will preserve your programs and data using Reimage. It costs a little bit but it's well worth the price. The… Read More
It dosen' really matter but it is probably a better idea to put on 98 and XP because XP is too similer to 2000. Actually, if you put 98 on any PC you're asking for trouble. 2000 is much more stable than 98 could ever hope to be and 2000 coexists very well with XP on the smat HD
The update from 98 to XP does not affect any software you already had in your computer. Thus it is normal that the icon is still there. Go to Control Panel (Windows XP has a new, simplified interface in Control Panel, which is not so easy to use, click on Add/Remove Program. Scroll through the list and locate something that is related to Earthlink and remove them all. I do not know if you need… Read More
Sometimes, the only thing a person can do to fix a slow Windows 2000 computer is to reset it to factory defaults. Perhaps the computer is running slow because the memory is used up. In this case, delete things that are not necessary on the computer or download them to a disk.
You can not convert a FAT 32 drive to NTFS in windows 98 because windows 98 does not support it. You can however mount an existing NTFS drive in windows 98 using a driver from www.winternals.com
This usually occurs after formatting or putting a new hard drive into a system and needs to be fidisked. To do this get to a dos prompt usuing a bootable floppy, type in fdisk and partition the hard drive using the on screen options (create new partition)(fat32 for windows 95/98/me ntfs for nt/xp/2000)
From the DOS prompt, you can copy most files only to a floppy as the system won't recognize any other devices (e.g. cd-rw).
Laptop's BIOS settings which can be accessed by pressing the [Esc] key during the memory test when booting the laptop.
Just follow the directions that come with the hardware. Every piece of hardware I have added in the last 20 years had instructions on how to install the hardware. Be sure to read them COMPLETELy before starting to install anything. This ASSUMES the person has the documentation. If you want a more specific answer, then the question needs to be more specific as to which hardware that one is installing.
Yes. There are a couple ways you could do this. 1. You could purchase an external CD-ROM drive that connects to the parallel port. Using a special DOS boot floppy and driver, you could then launch the Windows 98 setup CD. 2. You could remove the laptop's hard drive, plug it into another computer, install Windows 98, and then place it back. It will likely be missing some drivers, but you can supply these on… Read More
You would have to get a CD drive which fits in your laptop or get an external USB one which you can connect to it
The drivers for the mouse might be incompatible with the Windows 98 operating system.
You need a boot disk to start it up. Either use your emergency repair disk that you created for that operating system. Boot up the machine and go into the BIOS and enable the "boot from floppy disk" or something similar. Put the boot disk in the floppy drive and reboot. Follow the instructions given; you need CDROM support enabled. When ready insert the W98 disk into your CD Drive and navigate to it's root… Read More
On a Windows 98 system, there is very likely to only be one partition on the disk. The difference between formatting the disk and deleting the partition would thus be a matter of semantics. Either way, all the data on the hard drive would be gone.
Partition your Hard Drive using Fdisk application in dos after booting your PC via bootable CD. Hard Disks larger that 20 GB may easily partitioned using DM 2000 in seconds.

No updates will "hurt" it; but for space's sake, only apply updates to issues that you know will affect you. For example, if you play a lot of games, you will want the latest version of DirectX for Windows 98. Updates aren't likely to seriously benefit performance. Some users have reported slight speed increases after installing the .NET framework, but this also uses a lot of hard drive space.
first of all u create a folder then use: attrib -h <foldername> to hide it. u can also lock folder using dos by usin number key ...

For backward compatibility reasons with MS-DOS which uses Io.sys to load the built-in device drivers when a system is turned on or restarted.
There have been no updates of any kind for Windows 98 since 2006. Microsoft is in the process of removing any of the old updates for Windows 98 from their site, which would make it difficult to patch a freshly-installed copy to the maximum available. However, there are many copies of the updates and patches mirrored at other sites; you just have to install them manually. Bottom line - there have been no patches that… Read More
you put in a windows xp CD and install it as you would any other operating system. For an old low powered laptop, the toshiba 4300 handles xp very well. Providing the minimum specifications are met by the laptop, I.E you have an adequate amount of memory and hard drive space, you'll find that this very basic and poorly built machine will hold it's own against later notebooks.
Windows 98 uses an older technology based on DOS, Windows 2000 is based on the NT Kernel. Sometimes Windows NT OS's don't work right with old dos files. With a clean install, you get a fresh start. With an upgrade, problems with applications or the OS may follow you into the new load. Install off of your Windows 2000 CD and then have Windows search for your Win 98 CD when it checks for valid… Read More
Windows 98 supports FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, and ISO9660 (on CDs).
No. Microsoft Producer 2003 requires Windows 2000 or later.
It is possible for a person to dual-boot Windows 95 and Windows 98. This is done by modifying the msdos.sys file.
Any of the new desktops can be used for this purpose. You will be able to convert the files over to the new format.
It is not recommended that you downgrade. Were you to downgrade, you would just insert the 98 install disk and format over XP or maybe make a partition. But instead, you should download VirtualBox onto XP and install Windows 98 within VirtualBox as a virtual guest computer.

Microsoft released Windows 95 on the 24th August 1995.
Obtain a legal copy from a reputable source that has old copies on CD ROM in stock, then follow the on-screen instructions.
Unless your some important or busy business men(yeah, I said it), then don't waste the money. Home Premium offers plenty for what most people need. Unless you're feeling spoiled, then don't bother with Ultimate edition.
No file is necessary from Matrox in order to upgrade from Windows 98 to Windows XP. If you have a video card made by Matrox, you may want to check their website for driver updates. This can be done after the install, and is not mandatory.
