    It would probably cost more money and time then it's worth to fix.

    For $300 and less you can get a brand new desktop that's probably 100 times better right out the gate.

    Donate the computer and let go.

Please to don't take this wrong but your computer is an antique.
There is a big chance that it is not going to turn on one day and you may lose all of the data on it.

Don't feel bad though, that is suprisingly long life for a computer!

It is time to get a new PC and move your data to it. This is your last chance to get Windows XP which is the last version of Windows that still looks like WIndows 98. Don't get stuck with Windows Vista.

Check out and type "Outlet" into the Search Window. The slowest Windows XP computer you find will be WAY faster than your current computer at a tenth of the price. They even have payment plans.

I hope this helps.

I have a Dell Inspiron with Windows 98 on it and would like to find a manual for the computer and for Windows 98. I want to learn how to use both this computer and windows 98.

Well, Windows 98 is an end-of-life product. It is no longer supported by Microsoft, so no help will be coming from there. You can go to and enter your service tag number to download the manual for your computer.
I would suggest using Google to find any Win98 manuals that may be out there.

Windows 98 does not support Plug n Play Devices. So you have to download appropriate drivers from Microsoft Website. Though Windows 98SE ( Windows 98 Second Edition ) thought to be support USB Mass Storage Drives fairly, these drivers are not pre-installed with OS. You have to download Service packs to install these drivers.

Since Windows 98 have TWO versions, we have to download corresponding service packs .

You can

Mistake install

Hey, you can probably buy a windows 98se copy from ebay
or with some luck from a local pc shop / repair shop.

Microsoft stoped supporting windows 98 many years ago, and its no longer in production. So my guess is no.

Your best shot is to get it used.

30 day use Windows Xp Pro

The problem is with the actual key that you are using. Not your computer, or the components inside of it. If you are certain that you are using a valid key Its likely that you have a a key for windows home, and you are trying to install windows professional, or visa versa... Either way, If all else fails, you could replace the OS ( Buy or download) much easier than the hardware inside your computer.

Basically your computer is fine, just get a valid OS. If your adventurous try ubuntu.

Hope this helps!
