Installing usb mouse on windows 98 without 98 install disks.

Trying to get a Belkin three button usb mouse to work on my older ibm notebook running windows 98. Windows reports no driver installed for the mouse. I have downloaded several driver files but windows will not read them, just keeps asking for the cd installation disk which I do not have. I bought this laptop used with system installed. The three files it requests are hidclass.sys, hidparse.sys and hidusb.sys. I provided these on floppy but it says "no usable info found" or something to that nature. Am I missing a install file or something that should be on the floppy as well so windows will read those drivers ?? thankyou dm

    Problem solved. Just needed a couple of more files that made up the driver package.
    Works just fine.

    Thanks for all help.

another option is to buy a new PS2 mouse that can go into the external keyboard/mouse point behind the laptop, that way if there is an issue with ur USB port it will be known...

SOURCE: Trouble installing driver in Windows 98 without original install disks

I would look for the whole driver package from http://www.driverguide.com If you have the files downloaded why are they on the floppy? You can point the installation to any location, including the hard drive of the laptop. Driver guide does require a (free) membership to download, but it's a great site.

Belkin wireless mouse won't connect on power up of PC


A Belkin Mini Wireless Optical Mouse frees you from the restriction imposed by the limit of the wire that your mouse uses to connect to your computer. The Belkin model works up to three feet away from the receiver and operates on a 27 MHz frequency. It's smaller than a regular mouse, making it easy to add it to a laptop case or desk drawer without losing much space in the process. Before you can use the Belkin Mini Wireless Optical mouse, you must install it. The receiver and the mouse should sync automatically; if they don't, you must perform the sync manually.

1 Press the bottom release tab on the top cover of the mouse. Insert the batteries included in the package and replace the cover.
2 Turn on your computer. Plug the Belkin USB receiver into a USB port on your computer. The drivers will install automatically.
3 Press the sync button on top of the USB receiver and then press the sync button on the bottom of the mouse to connect the two devices.
Warning
  • close Before you can install the Belkin mouse, remove drivers for other wireless mouse types on your computer.

My IBM Think Pad 240x hard disk damage; i brought a hard disk, please give me instruction how i install Windows2000 or Win XP, I have a USB CD rom but not supporting.


First I suggest you install Windows XP but you need the Windows installation CD and the product installation code.
Second, the USB ports and therefore the CD ROM drive will not work until Windows XP has been installed, unless the BIOS supports the USB ports and you can make the USB port/CD ROM as the first boot device.
After installing Windows you need to install the ThinkPad's device drivers.
The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista devicedrivers for your model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true You can download thevarious drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, theywill then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install thevarious drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

I cannot get my mouse to work on my IBM laptop thinkPad. Any ideas???


If its a usb mouse then I would try looking around online for a driver for it and downloading and installing this driver.

If its not a usb mouse make sure the computer is turned off when you plug it in.

Installing windows on acer notebook help


you cannot usually switch installed operating systems from computer to computer like that and still expect windows to boot, but with windows 98 it *might* work.

to install windows 98 on the usb drive, insert and boot from the windows 98 disk like you were to install it on that computer , and then, it should, before it formats any drives, give you a choice of what drive to format.
