Computer not working correctly

Hi
I currently have an oldish HP Pavillion computer running windows '98. I have been loathe to change as I am due to relocate home in 6 months and will change my desktop then.
Last week when I went to boot up my computer it did so, but the screen appeared to be in "safe mode" although it didn't say safe mode anywhere on the screen.
My mouse now doesn't apear on the screen and where pages used to appear over the entire screen its only half the page appears.
When I start in safe mode the mouse works fine but I can't access the internet to try and find some help.
Please, I would love some possible answers and help!

Right click My Computer, left click Properties, left click Hardware, left click Device Manager. Left click Display adapters. Right click your adapter and left click Properties. This should give information as to whether the Display adapter is working properly. In Device Manager check other hardware that has a Question Mark"?" or Exclamation Mark"!". You may need to re-install some Drivers. Win 98 had Driver problems.

Akilesh yadav hp laptop not install windows xp


If it is an older computer, the motherboard may not accept an XP installation. I have older desktops that will not accept an XP install but work fine with Win 98 and ME.

If newer model the problem could be with the disk or the cd reader. A defect in either will prevent an install.

The CreateACard Gold 3 (CAC Gold 3) will never work with Windows 7 64bit unassumingly because the software producing company has not upgraded their software for even Vista 64bit.
I recommend you to switch to " Hallmark Card Studio Special Edition" it has all the features of CAC Gold 3. You will enjoy it as there should be no problem installing it with Windows 7 64bit.

Good Luck!

Screen Problems


It sounds like you need to install a video driver. You'll want to go to www.hp.com, go to their support section, and download the driver for your particular PC. As long as you know the model number of your PC, you should be able to find it.

Keep in mind that Win98 driver support is harder to find lately - you may want to consider upgrading to a more recent and better-supported OS eventually.

How to restart hp pavillion 7965 desktop


Hi there. Try these steps:

1. On restart, press F8. This should bring you to a screen with various boot options.

2. Select "Last known good configuration". Windows then may load correctly.

3. If this doesn;t work, try the same thing. This time select "boot in Safe Mode". If Windows now loads in Safe Mode you should be able to restart and Windows may load correctly after this.

4. If these two both fail, you may have to repair Windows...
