Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
I got a gatway solo 3300 and it wont let me use the mouse or the extarnl flopey drive i got the drivers to update it but i cant use the flopey drive
Could this be a problem with the USB on the PC? Check that USB is enabled in BIOS. Give some more info, there may be more things to try.

Tips for a great answer:
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty
if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty
even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems
computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free
restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard hope this helps
try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.
dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts
if by now you gan get a screen
you might have to uninstall your keyboard restart your computer then reinstall it
make sure the lead connection is secure and dust free (if applicable)
make sure the usb device is inserted correctly into the Ps2 or usb port (if applicable)
click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to keyboards also mouse you might see a yellow exclamation or question mark ! ? or red x you will need to update driver right click to update driver
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
this will apply to your mouse
you might have to uninstall the mouse and its drivers then restart your computer then reinstall the mouse and its drivers
click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver
click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have the options update driver rollback driver or uninstall in xp
in windows 7 click start control panel hardware and sound mouse you will see the same tabs and options as with xp
hope this helps
