You could certainly install 98, but why? If you did install Window98, you would have zero security patches available because Microsoft no longer supports 98.

If you have 128M of memory, windows XP works ok.

    Sorry...I meant to ask for clarification...What "info" do you need about "rebooting"? Do you mean reinstalling?

I have an old packard bell pc and it needs to be rebooted but i haven't got the original floppy reboot disc how can i do it without the disc ?


By rebooted, I assume you mean reinstalled? You cannot reinstall a PC this old without the operating system disk. New PC's have a utility partition that contains the reinstall package. You will have to purchase that OS from ebay or some other site.

I want to take all my information off of my old Pavilion50n computer and reboot it. To give it to a school. I just bought a new one and want to be sure all my personal info. is off of my old one.


You can purchase software like Drive erase for about $30.00. That will wipe your drive completely clean. Then you will have to reinstall Windows on the computer. You will need a complete OEM version of Windows to reinstall. You might have to reformat you drive before you can reinstall Windows.

Hello snakeeyess, you can go to this website, driverguide.com. this website needs you to sign in, and after you sign in, browse for your sound card driver, just jot down the make and the model.

Reinstalling windows on desktop


you will not be able to get the drivers for the packard bell computer, especially for windows XP. the computer was discontinued way before XP came out, as well as the company going out of business. There is a new packard bell company, but based in Europe only. In addition, when you use the HP cd, it will probably say not compatible with non-hp computers.
your best bet is to download you important information and store it on a new unit.

Window 98 Professional does recognize Panasonic RR-US395 since it was removed from the usb port accidentally before being removed properly. I can see that the recorder is connected but can't find the files...


Windows 98 Professional?

I don't think there is such a version. It's probably either Windows 98 or Windows XP Professional.

If a reboot does not help, the simplest thing to try is to reinstall the device driver registry entries for the USB port.

Assuming you have Windows XP, right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage". Under "System Tools", select "Device Manager". If Windows is detecting problems with any of the device drivers, the Device Manager entry will be flagged with a exclamation point caution sign. Otherwise, you can try removing all of the entries under "Universal Serial Bus controllers". To remove the entry, right-click it and select "Uninstall". Remember, this only removes the entry from the registry. Unless the drivers are corrupted or missing, you will likely not need the install disk to reinstall the entry. Once you are done, reboot and Windows will detect the USB controller(s) does not have an entry and will prompt you to reinstall it. Take the option to let Windows find the drivers for you. If this procedure does not work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for the device. If that does not work, you likely have a hardware problem - bad cable, bad connection, etc.

If you do indeed have Windows 98, it's been a while, but the above procedure should be similar.

I need to reinstall windows on packard bell imedia 5106


 Because you have a packard bell, I would assume this is a much older system.  You would have to put Windows 98 on it I presume unless you have enough memory to do XP.  Either way you will need one of the Windows CDs to load the software... I ve seen Win98 on Ebay for $50. Once you have the software, you will need a boot disk.. You can download this off the Internet.  What this boot disk does, is it loads the utilities that you need like to format the hard drive and it will also load the cd rom drivers so you can use your cd rom and install windows from the cd... Load the boot disk and once its loaded you can use the format command.  At the C Prompt, type     format C:     It will erase the Hard Drive. Once completed,  Reboot the computer with the boot disk still in. When it gets done you can install Windows. Most times it will assign the cd rom drive a letter. Usually D or E.   When it comes up type    E:\Setup This should start your install.                                                              Joe < Data Miner >

Windows 98 install


It could be a memory related problem. Try to test your memory module by installing it to a different system that is surely working. If that system restarts, then you must replace the memory module.
