Is it possible to upgrade a Toshiba Satellite T2130CS to Windows 98 SE even though it only has a floppy drive and no CD drive?

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 floppies.

How do you reformat a laptop from Windows 2000 with no A: drive only a D drive and put Windows XP back onto the laptop?

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 "Boot Order" or "boot devices". Make sure your CD-Rom is in the list ahead of the hard drive (sometimes listed as HDD or one of the IDE).

How do you remove PSW.Agent.2.BL from a Windows XP system?

If your own virus-scanner can't remove it (not even in Save Mode), you can do a online virusscan. There are several online virusscanners, f.e. Trend Micro: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ Panda: http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/ BitDefender http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/license.php If your using Windows XP, it's also possible that the virus can't be removed, because it's found in the System Restore. You can remove the virus, by disabling and re-enabling the System Restore. Info:http://vil.nai.com/vil/SystemHelpDocs/DisableSysRestore.htm

Good luck, Jahewi :-)

On XP the PSW.Agent can be foud on a file called ibm0000x where x is the number of times you tried to remove it from the registry. It's somewhere in program files/ common file/ shared to web..Do a search for positive identification. Install your hard drive on another clean computer .Just delete and create new empty files ibm00001.exe, ibm00001.dll . If your hard drive is FAT32 , just boot from a clean windows 98 boot disk, lauch the Necromancer Dos Navigator (free on internet, it's a sort of Norton Commander for DOS, but much better)and delette/create the files. It's how I "innoculate" my computer for further atacks also KLL

The Difference Between

What are the differences between Windows 95 and Windows 98?

Windows 98 came with support for USB built-in; Windows 95 needed an add-on released only for OEM versions.

Windows 98 supports FAT32 (and thus larger hard drives) out of the box; Windows 95, again, needed an add-on.

Windows 98 included DirectX 5.0; Windows 95 did not ship with any version of DirectX.

Windows 98 integrated Internet Explorer into the desktop shell; Windows 95 did not by default.

How do you create a daemon process in UNIX?

In Unix, with a C program you can run a quick function to do this. There is an example at:

(link moved to link section)

AnswerIn Solaris, you need to disconnect your program from your "terminal" ( scripts generally inherit the stdin, stdout, and stderr of your shell when you execute them ). For a shell program you can execute "nohup $program < /dev/null > /dev/null 2>&1 &". Or the shell program can redirect its own stdin, stdout, and stderr -- then you can execute "nohup $program &".

How can you reload windows 98 without losing personal files ex photos Am getting cannot find device file that may be needed to run windows or a windows application Cant use windows functions to fix?

You should be able to reinstall win98 and not format your storage device. If prompted to repair windows, do that instead.

Another Option is just back up your files. Sending them to a USB device like an Ipod or memory stick is one option but if this a computer that doesn't have usb then try burning them to a CD or storing them on an online server such as megaupload.com

How do you reformat OS using Windows 98?

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 your hard drive. If you want to reinstall Windows put the install disk in and reboot the computer.

Is it possible to repair Windows XP Home without the original XP OS disk other than doing a sfc scannow?

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 details on Reimage are here http://www.askthecomputerdoc.com/blog/reimage-repair/

Can you reformate a Dell with Windows ML to Windows XP Home?

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 the web if you do not know how to perform a low level format on your hard drive

Can you put windows XP hard drive in a Windows 98 Computer?

That's a bit of a trick question. There really is no such thing as an "XP Hard drive" or "Win98 Computer". If you're asking if you can install a drive that already contains an installation of XP in a computer that's currently running Windows 98 then, sure. As long as you have a valid license for XP and the computer you're installing it on has the minimum requirements (find those on the MS site), you'll be set. If no valid XP license, forget it... unless you don't mind breaking federal laws... in which case, you're on your own.

How can you fix a PC that is slow in Windows 2000 compared to Windows 98 and LAN connection does not work well in Windows 2000 but works fine in Windows 98?

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.

How do you avoid deleting a folder in Windows 98?

In order to prevent the deletion of a folder (or file, program, etc.) in Windows, locate the folder with the find function or with Windows Explorer, right click or select the File menu, select Properties, then click the Read-Only box. Files can still be saved to or deleted from the folder, but if you try to delete the folder it will warn you that the folder is read-only.

What command allows you to see what programs are loading during start up on Windows 98SE?

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 in the start menu and entering 'msconfig'.

How do you delete folder containing cyclic redundancy check?

A Cyclic Redundancy Check, (CRC) is a data block that is added to the end of files, as well as other various blocks of data, to detect and correct errors. The value of the CRC data block is dependant on the data it is checking as well as CRC block generator equation. Unfortunately, if there are too many erros in the file, the CRC can not be used to correct the errors. There is a specific number of errors that can be corrected and detected depending on how the CRC block is generated. It will always detect the presence of twice as many erros than it can correct.

My suggestion is to delete these files without the help of the operating system. Start you computer in command prompt mode and type the following:

del C:\xxx\yyy\file1.jpg

where "C:\xxx\yyy" is the location of the file you want to delete, file1.jpg.

The location could be "C:\my documents\my pictures" but depends on your file system structure. If does not work try:

del /F C:\xxx\yyy\file1.jpg

How do you install Windows 98 on a second drive if Windows 2000 Professional is already installed on first drive?

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.

Is it possible to show local area connection in system tray icon in Windows 98 like windows xp?

I went so far as to install 98 on a system at home just to check this out. I was unable to find an option that would let you display the icon for network connectivity in the system tray. So I would have to say there is no way to do this. Solution: 1: Create restore point. 2: take registry backup. 3: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters

4: Add the following registry entry to the Parameters subkey:

Name: DisableDHCPMediaSense

Data type: REG_DWORD (Boolean)

Value: 1 5: Restart the computer.
