Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC

1 Answer

Looking for data on the floppy

I have win 98. When many applications are started or when they are in use, like filling some areas with data, while positioning the coursor on the screen the computer needs time to do that and in the same time it is looking for data on the floppy. That slows down the system. What do you think that is the problem and how to fix it.
And I have another question, I have TakeMS Mem-drive Easy II, usb drive and I do not have driver for it. Can you point me where I can download it from?
Thanks, Snezana

First of all you need at least 512MB of memories min. to run. majority of the program are gear toward WIndos Xp or Vista.
to fix the problem you have, is to deleted all of the temporary files (temp folders, Temperary Internet File folder). from the machine. and have at least 25% of the hard drive free. do a defregmentation.
next go to BIOS at the machine startup and disable the Floppy.

Like I say before, you may have porbelm locating USB driver for the Win98. the most you will have is USB 1.0 not the updated USB2.0 driver. which means there are only few USB enable device can be used.

Where would I get a reboot floppy disk


Unless you are running Windows 98 or earlier, there is practically no way to get the OS boot files on an area the size of a floppy disk. And I can almost guarantee that since Win 98SE even Microsoft has not put out anything on floppy disk.

Mitsumi D359M3 driver for Win Wista, 7


You shouldn't need one. You PC bios should pick up the drive when you turn your PC on.

Look in "My Computer" the floppy should be listed there.

Floppies only hold about 1.44 Mb of data Its worth mentioning that these drives are more or less obsolete now, flash/USB drive hold much more data, more now than CD's (700Mb) and
DVD's (4.7 Gb) and now with SD card usb adaptors almost as much as Blueray disks (25 Gb)

250 GB Western Digital external HD not detected by Win 98 SE


If you installed SE on Win 98, then here is a link to a generic USB driver that should work with your HD. If at some point you decide to install a newer OS or go dual-boot, you can always partition the HD so you don't lose any storage. Best of luck.

Operating system not found


get a win 98 boot disk. get to the bios and enable floppy drive or usb floppy boot first. insert disk and turn on the computer you should get a menu screen select start with out cdrom support when you get a command prompt type FDISK MBR. this will repair your master boot record remove disk and reboot. or the hard drive is not plugged in or you may need to reinstall the OS again. if you reinstall the OS be sur to get the info off of your drive before you do it. it will erase existing info and make it really hard to recove that data.
