Usb wireless mouse driver works


The INF is the driver information file. It's missing the driver file. If I remember correctly, windows 95 does not support USB. I thought USB was first supported with Windows 98.

How do i uninstall windows 98 plus from my computer


You simply can not uninstall an OS (operating system), you may have to Format the hard drive itself. If you are upgrading the OS to a version that uses NTFS, like windows xp or higher, a format is suggested. If you have a boot diskette, you can do it that way. If not you can create on using windows 98, but you will need an old floppy diskette and a drive to boot. If you have a newer OS on a CD, simply insert into the computer and follow the on-screen instructions.
If you have a boot diskette(floppy), turn off your computer. Insert the disk and turn on the computer. Let it do its thing, once the diskette loads small programs, you will be able to format the HDD(hard drive).
you will see something like this after its done loading...

c:\

type in format c:
shown like this...

c:\format c:

A message will pop up, saying: WARNING! ALL DATA ON NON-REMOVABLE DISK DRIVE C: WILL BE LOST!
Proceed with fromat? (y/n)

If you are sure you want to erase everything, type in Y. The computer will now format (may take awhile) and will be ready for a new operating system!

I cannot load trophy bass 4 to windows 7. it says needs 31mg of memory. new computer has 6gigs of memory. What am I missing? I'm a novice. Thanks


Hello, this is happening because the game is a bit old and can't report your memory correctly. To fix this you have to run the game in compatibility mode, follow these steps:

1. right-click on the games shortcut and choose 'open file location'
2. find the game's executable file, right-click on it and select properties
3. click the "compatibility" tab
4. check the box "run this program in compatibility mode" and choose "windows 98/Me" or "windows
95". Apply settings.
5. Have fun playing

Thanks for using FixYa

NTLDR MSSING, how can i solve this?


NTLDR is short for NT loader – a program loaded from the hard drive boot sector that displays the Microsoft Windows NT startup menu and helps Microsoft Windows NT load. So when it goes missing for some reason, your windows cannot load.
Cause:
1. Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
2. Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
3. Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
4. Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
5. Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT32.
6. New hard disk drive being added.
7. Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
8. Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
9. Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable.
if there is attached drive ,remove the drive first before restarting the system if not then if you had access to another computer, copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM which is available from the recovery CD which comes with computer. If you do not have the recovery CD, its available on microsoft site or is available from another computer using the same Operating System (Windows XP ). The location may be C:\i386\ntldr C:\i386\ntdetect.com use a bootable disc to restart the computer (the Win XP bootable CD or Win 98 bootable CD worked). After entering MS DOS mode, copy these 2 files to the C drive in the proper location. After restart, then pressing F10 on start up (used for system recovery ), then start the repair of Windows via system recovery This will reinstalled all Windows drivers and system files, while preserving all data on your computer.

Comp starts up and only shows wallpaper, explorer.exe won't start


You should format your hard drive reinstall your Windows XP. If you have any important data on the drive use Hiren's Boot CD, it has Mini Windows XP, which loads off the CD and you can use it to copy data from your hard drive to another one.
