Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC

Windows 98se video drivers

I have an old computer with 98SE and some specialized software that won't run on newer op sys. I had to replace my HD and reinstall 98SE. Previously, somehow, I had generic drivers for higher resolutions than 640 x 480. Are there any generic drivers for higher resolutions?

Not for 98SE i believe. a great OS but MS most likey deleted those from their servers long ago. if you can find someone else who has a system with 98SE you may be able to copy and install them from them. someone who is really old and smart "CE" maybe could program them:) for you but, you should have backed up your system and drivers before this repair was needed

SOURCE: windows 98 SE

if you need an operating system and would not mind using linux (an alternative to windows) look on the www.puppylinux.com site and see if you would like to try it. the download is about 80meg and it runs very fast on all the computers i have used it with. or try looking on softpedia for a free download of the outdated windows xp install disks. or you can buy some disks from ebay. but i reccomend trying puppy linux, it is free and you have nothing to lose.(the disk is a live boot disk, so it should just run off the cd)

SOURCE: Need a driver for USB2 external hard drive to work with Win98SE

1) the device should have come with install software, use that. if you dont have it try these ->

2) plug it in and go into the Device Manager,
Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager

it might be "unknown" but if it's in there click on it, click on "Install Driver". it will ask you to let it search the web for a driver. allow it to do so. it may or may not find one.

3) OR go to the manufacturers web site and look for the SUPPORT link. you should be able to make your way to the drivers section. they may have one for you.

If these dont work --
What is the make model etc of the device, all the numbers please.
and please gimmie your pc info. make model processor , os, etc

Let me know :)

Software windows 98se


It would be helpful if we knew the Make, Model of Laptop. If the Laptop is that old the hardware specs may not support a software upgrade to say Win XP or above. Windows 98se drivers may be a bit difficult to find. The software has been un-supported for many years, soon XP will be on that list. But it's possible with a search of the Make, Model of Computer and the OS.

Ibought this camera and it didn't have the driver info in the box. I bought it from fingerhut. These people are imposible. the camera without drivers is no good


According to your camera's manual, no driver is necessary unless your computer is running Windows 98SE. No driver is required with Windows 2000, ME, or XP (Plug and Play). The manual is dated 2005, so it makes no mention of Vista or Windows 7, so compatibility with the newer systems is an unknown. If you're running Vista or 7 I suggest that you use the link below to contact the camera manufacturer for clarification and possibly to obtain a software disk.

Need drivers to run windows 98se on dell xps m140


Microsoft (and Dell) stopped supporting Windows 98 a few years ago -- it lasted for over TEN years! So, it is *NOT* likely that you will find drivers for any computer that was "designed for Windows 2000" or "designed for Windows XP" or "designed for Vista".

So, in general, it is a _bad_ idea to connect any computer running Windows 98 to the Internet -- Microsoft has issued many "security-fixes" in the 4 years after they stopped supporting Windows 98 and Windows ME.

I want to transfer files from an old desktop running Windows 98SE to a new laptop running Windows Vista Home Basic. I have bought a Maxell 2Gb memory stick: gone to the Maxell eu site and downloaded - as...


It should be unzipped and path to the unzipped folder provided while installing new hardware, when Windows (after plugging in the stick) finds a new plug&play device and asks for the location of drivers.

Also, go to your newer computer and check the USB stick's drive properties - it should be formatted using the FAT or FAT32 file system. If it's formatted using NTFS, Windows 98SE will not see it.

Good luck!

Can not get my printer to print from the computer


Unfurtunately you didnt tell us what pc system you run: Is it XP, Win2k or Vista?

The latter one wont be able to connect to your pc.
For the mfc 210c are only drivers for xp and win 2k, 98se avaiable.

You need another (newer) mfc (mfc240 or 235) if you run vista.

Anyway, if you run xp, download the aggrssive usb driver remover from the brother homepage and delete the drivers installed.

After a restart of the pc do have the mfc DISconnect from usb port (which must be one of the pc: NO hub!). Insert install disc and wait until pc software demands the connection to mfc. Connect now to pc usb. Let the software finish the installation. This should work for xp and win 2k/98se.

You can get the driver on Teac's site. The 98se driver you download depends on your serial number, so have that handy.
