Question about IBM ThinkPad 760 XL Notebook
Win98 is installed on machine but I cannot use Windows Explorer. The devices seem to work (CD-ROM, 3COM PCMCIA card). Most times the system chokes when I try to navigate with the mouse. What I would like to do is get the machine 'operational' (ie not constantly crashing, load Word and install a USB port to gain some wireless connectivity. If it is not possible for under $100, then I'll just look for another used machine.
Thanksbeforehand for any assistance you can provide:-)
I don't think you would want to go back to win 95. Not only is is an end of life product, but it doesn't support USB.

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps
