Trouble installing driver in Windows 98 without original install disks

I am trying to use this usb mouse on a laptop running windows 98. When Windows tries to update the drivers it says insert cd installation disk which I do not have. (Pawn shop laptop) The three files called for are hidclass.sys, hidparse.sys and hidusb.sys. I have downloaded these from the net but Windows will not read them from the floppy. Windows cannot complete the mouse install because it can't find the drivers. Is there another required file needed to recognize those drivers and install them? Thanks for your help DM

    Thanks for your help. The laptop is not my main computer and not on the internet. I am not sure moving the files from the floppy drive to the hard drive will act any different but worth a try. I got the three files in question from driverguide.com , I will look for a complete driver package, maybe it has something I am missing. I just downloaded the three files that windows keeps asking for during the update.

    thanks again

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.

I need to know how to install a driver


Did some research - this is a fairly old product since the references I found said it worked with windows 98 (wow! - more than 10 years ago).

If you have the original CD with drivers, you might be able to install on a modern PC (windows 7 or windows 8) by :

1) copying the driver onto your desktop
2) right click your mouse while pointing to the file
3) select properties
4) select compatibility
5) Choose compatibility mode : check "run this program in compatibility mode for"
6) Try out various settings, starting with Windows 98

Best of luck !

What's your probleIM trying to install windows after putting in a new hard drive and I keep getting error 10e7160017


If this is a blue screen error and it do not let you to install the operation system ..but only loads a few files ..it means that you have let the hard disk set by default ..in BIOS and it is on sata bus..and needs to install the ahci driver ...If you have its original driver disk ..and you have a bootable disk with the operation system ..try to see if it takes the driver from a memory stick ...Just run the installation from the boot-able disk ..and press f 6 when it asks for 3rd party driver ..if you installing windows XP ..or ..when you get to the first screen on windows 7 ..choose to load driver and browse for the ahci driver on the usb stick ..if it can be found..or load it into a partition instead..or a external floppy disk ..Or ..make a boot-able memory stick .and load windows from it ..and use the original disk with drivers to load the ahci driver ..
In case non of these will work ..just go to bios settings first ..and under the hard disk 0 ..select to disable the ahci mode...and select ide compatible ..or ide default ..or plain ide...anyway ..just not ahci ....and the hard disk will be seen and will let you to install the operation system ..
If you are trying to install from a recovery disk ..it may not work ..cause will not recognize the hard disk and may need to use files usually stored in the reserved partition of windows..so ..best to try install from a boot-able disk or boot-able usb device ..and after that load all drivers and programs ..including antivirus..
remember to get the lan driver in handy ..cause without it you will not be able to connect top the internet and finish the drivers and programs installing ..
let me know if you solved the problem and please rate my answer if it's helpful ..have a nice day !

Would like advise on how to install a wireless mouse on a laptop


Wireless mice come with a USB dongle and a wireless mouse. Install batteries in the mouse and plug in the USB dongle into 1 of your USB ports on your laptop while in Windows. Windows will detect the mouse and automatically install the software needed to communicate with the mouse. If Windows doesn't install this device automatically, try installing the drivers included on the driver CD.

How can I install one touch 7600 scanner without an install disk?


What OS do you have? The manufacturer's web site offers drivers for Windows 98/Me or Win 2000 and XP:
http://support.visioneer.com/products/7600/downloads.asp

If you have a newer OS, you can try installing the driver in the compatability mode but it may not work.

Please note that the scanner is officially not designed for XP and is not supported by the manufacturer any longer (end-of-life). The supported Operating Systems:
  • Windows 2000 / Me / NT 4.0 / 98
  • Not Designed for Windows XP
I hope this helps.

ENTRY IN SETUP


Windows 98 does not support USB and therefore no USB devices will work without a driver.
Why ae you using Windows 98?
If you insist on using a very old Windows operating system then at least use Windows ME, it does support USB devices.
Try pressing the DEL or F10 key when you boot up to get into the BIOS.
