We need re installation driver installer disk for mother board compaq serie ep sb 440 bx chipset


The computer has an Intel 440BX chipset on it. Chipset drivers are built into 
Win ME or later, required from www.intel.com for Win 98 or NT. You'll also need 
to identify the audio, network and video drivers and possibly obtain drivers for 
them as well. 

Try the HP web site for info about the drivers, many of which can be downloaded 
there. HP did not trash the Compaq Deskpro driver downloads when it bought up 
Compaq. HP and Carly have trashed up just about everything else tho in the last 
3+ years..

Missing or corrupted file C:\windows\himem.sys


If you are running Windows 95, Windows 98, type:
copy himem.sys c:\windows <press enter>
If when typing any of the above commands you receive a prompt that the file already exists, ensure to overwrite it.
Reboot the computer; if the issue continues to occur, verify that the config.sys is properly setup. The line himem.sys should read:
DEVICE=C:\Windows\HIMEM.SYS
or
DEVICE=C:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS
Additional information and examples of the config.sys can be found on our autoexec.bat / config.sys page.

Win 98 se file trouble


get hold of a win 98 boot disc (search the net) as it will have the files you are looking for, i am sure. copy them to your hard disc c:\windows or c:\windows\system
put them in both as i cant remember what one they go in. (it will not hurt in both).

good luck
