Re: i found a pc that has windows 95 installed in it ....

Install XP or win98 from win95 only.... If you dont want to remove it than u can make use of it...You can make use of multiple OS.. Else Install XP after inserting disc and rebooting pc...and select from bios mode your 1st boot option to CD-ROM Please make sure you dont install XP on the drive in which 95 is installed otherwise it will overwrite it.

Need operating system help for Dell 433/l

Yes, sorry Bryan. Sounds like the hard drive on that computer finally failed. Since the machine is so old, you'd have to purchase an IDE Hard Drive which you'll probably have to purchase online. Secondly, you'd have to do a full reinstall of Windows on this new drive. Lastly, you'll have to locate an install the software that was controlling your furnaces. Sounds like an awful lot of work. I wish you the best of luck.

I have a original game PGA Tour 96, EA for windows 95. I want install this game in XP SO, but its impossible for me.

I assume you meant to say XP OS.
Many older games are not compatible with the newer operating systems.
Use your old computer with the Windows 95 operating system installed.
If you REALLY want to use the game, find an older Windows 95 computer
and buy it.

More than likely it will not. What you can do is run a virtual PC. But it also depend on if the program will run in XP or win 2000. If you have a windows 95 or 98 disk and key, then you can install it with Virtual PC from Microsoft. Check it out here:

My problem is i don't have the certificate of authentication for my windows 95 in my Packard bell restoration CD i can't start window, where can i copy the code?

Firstly, I must say I'm impressed that you're still trying to run Windows 95.
This is very, very old software. If you have a few hundred dollars (I know, money is tight), I would highly recommend that you purchase a new laptop, or even a used laptop from a friend or from eBay. Hardware and software have come a very, very long way since '95.
If you just don't have the money, or you just insist on running Windows 95, you will have to purchase a new copy. You can buy one off of Amazon for about $9:

Microsoft Windows 95 is no longer supported by Microsoft.

Upgrade to Windows XP, or buy a new computer with Windows Vista pre-installed (and with a coupon for Windows 7).

Get your 95 FORD EXPLORER towed to a certified mechanic; it is *NOT* safe to drive the vehicle.

first thing i ld like to tell u is that what we have to check is that the PC shuld have the basic requirements on it as Microsoft The following list describes the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 98: • A personal computer with a 486DX 66 megahertz (MHz) or faster processor (Pentium central processing unit recommended). • 16 megabytes (MB) of memory (24 MB recommended). • A typical upgrade from Windows 95 requires approximately 195 MB of free hard disk space, but the hard disk space may range from between 120 MB and 295 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install. • A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT16 drive requires 225 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 165 MB and 355 MB, depending on your computer configuration and that options that you choose to install. • A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT32 drive requires 175 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 140 MB and 255 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install. • One 3.5-inch high-density floppy disk drive. • VGA or higher resolution (16-bit or 24-bit color SVGA recommended).

Microsoft Windows 98 for PC Problem is there any software driver for pen drive so that my win98 o.s. computer can detect any type or companies pen drive plz tell me

wow, the 90's are a calling... sure their is a roumor of a usb pen driver for win 98' ....


Windows 98, especially in it's second edition (also known as Windows 98SE), handles USB fairly well, however there are no generic/universal mass storage device drivers preinstalled in the operating system, so you will need to install some additional drivers for it. Some manufacturers do however, provide the Windows 98 drivers on CD, others have them available to download, and others simply do not have them available at all!!!!!!!


generic Windows 98SE USB mass storage device drivers:


instructions?? :

  1. Download the exe file to the desktop
  2. Remove ALL drivers for USB flash drives in Device Manager
  3. Remove ALL drivers for any USB 2.0 controllers (many have an uninstall option)
  4. Remove ALL unknown devices from Device Manager (*carefull)
  5. Run the exe file you downloaded, and follow the instructions, rebooting after installation
  6. When the computer boots up again, it may detect new USB 2.0 controllers, in which case you may need to reboot again


as always good luck! now im going to go back to my windows 95 and play Bioshock on full graphics!! excuse me = )
