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

I would look for the whole driver package from 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.

Good morning, I have a windows 98 os, mouse (m-rn67) stopped working. no luck using newer mice, doesn't recognize. can i update computer using usb w/driver for newer mouse?

Hi janettgordon,
I am not exactly sure what you mean by "can i update computer using usb w/driver for newer mouse", but if you want to know if you can update the USB component of Windows 98 I regret to say to you that it's not possible.
USB support on Windows 98 always been tricky and Microsoft never officially supported it before Windows 98 SE. I don't know what version you have, but either way USB support under Windows 98 never been great. You also need to keep in mind that Windows 98 is quite an old system and no recent hardware like mouse, keyboard, printers is supported on it anymore.
My advise would be to upgrade your current Windows installation to Windows XP or Windows 2000. A friend can probably lend you a copy and I'm 100% positive that it will solve your problem with newer mices. You will need to make sure your computer can handle Windows XP or 2000, but they can run under pretty old hardware so it should not be a problem.

You have to install the software that came with the wireless mouse. I have several, and some will and others won't work without the software. That is 90% what it is.

My Compaq nx5000 notebook doesn't recognize an add on keyboard

Try other usb devices to make sure that your usb ports are working. If you try other usb devices and they work then you know the usb ports are working properly.

Now hook up the keyboard again to the usb port, see if the laptop recognizes it at all. if its recognizing it but not installing the drivers for it, then go ahead and put the disc in and run the setup off of the disk to install the drivers, then at that point it should work.

If that doesn't work, go to there website and download the latest software and install that.

If you hook up the usb device and the laptop isn't seeing it at all then that means the usb device is bad and your best bet at that point is to bring it back to the store and get another one.

Also make sure if the motherboard and mouse require batteries that you have good ones in there before trying to hook up the usb device to the laptop.

If it still doesn't work then you know its bad and you need to get another keyboard and mouse and usb device or go with another brand and model of keyboard and mouse.

If that doesn't work,

Want to use wireless mouse with my laptop how can I do this. I have a window vista laptop

Just buy a USB wireless mouse. There is a transceiver that plugs into the USB port of the computer, the size of a thumb drive, and it sends and receives signals to the wireless mouse. In my opinion, a wireless, optical mouse is the best. Normally the footprint (size) of the mouse is smaller than a desktop one as well if you choose. With Vista, just plug it in the USB port and windows should install the drivers without any disks. But if it doesn't just insert the disk that comes with the mouse. You only need a driver for it. A driver is a set of instructions that tell the device what to do. Every piece of hardware in your computer has a specific driver.
I hope this helps and good luck.

I just got a windows Vista and have a mouse for windows 98 and 98se It is a h.p. mouse.Is there some way I can use it?? when I try to install disk it won't let me go any farther.Please help,and tell me...

hmm, well, most mice are easily recognized by Vista with no trouble or software to install. You can usually do this by having it recognize hardware that's plugged in, in control panel. My best suggestion is that if the hardware recognition in control panel doesn't fix it, you can get an inexpensive USB optical mouse for around or less than 20 dollars at any decent store. Some older mice just cannot work with newer OSs, while basic mice never stop working. Go fig.

Wireless mouse

With USB wireless mice, you plug in the USB wireless adapter, and turn on the mouse. Windows XP should automatically install the software, if not, install the software on the disk that the mouse came with (if there is one). If there isn't a disk, Windows XP will most likely install the drivers automatically. Press the connect button on both the mouse, and the USB adapter, and it should all work. Good Luck
