These are the recommended hardware requirements in installing windows XP:

  • PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
  • 128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
  • 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*
  • Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor
  • CD-ROM or DVD drive
If your laptop pass all this requirements then you can upgrade your windows 98 to windows xp operating System.

Keyboard problem with Toshiba Satellite Pro 480CDT (running Win98 SE)


I found a BIOS upgrade download for the Toshiba Satellite Pro 480 on Toshiba's website under the archived old models listing. I downloaded it on a different machine and saved it to a USB which I then used to copy to the problem laptop and ran it there.
