I have the same computer,just let it run, the screen will eventually come back to life with your upgrade installed.

If its an old laptop with 300MHz Processor or so, better try to install Win98 itself.

I am running Windows 98 Second Edition and am trying to upgrade my Internet Explorer. Any Ideas?

You have not mentioned the current version of your internet explorer.
The Internet Explorer 6 with service pack 1 was the last edition that can run with Windows 98/98SE/ME
IE6 with service pack2 (the service pack can be installed separately) requires Windows XP or later.
So If you are currently on IE5 you can upgrade it to IE6 and install Service pack 1 after the upgrade. You cannot go beyond IE6 SP1 with Windows 98.

How can I put wireless adaptor on win 98 first edition

Good luck.

The first edition of Windows 98 lacked support for many devices. Windows 98 Second Edition added some support.

Can you find a "Windows 98 Second Edition Upgrade" CD-ROM and

Search for a wireless-adapter that *CLEARLY* states that it is supported on Windows 98 SE.

It's time to "trash" that computer.

Find somebody who has an older Pentium 3 or Pentium 4 computer that is running Windows XP, and buy that computer from them.

I need a copy of windows xp with registry key

Contact any retail computer-store, or shop on eBay or AMAZON.
They can still sell you a "Windows XP Upgrade" kit,
to allow upgrades from Windows 98 (assuming that you still have your Windows 98 CD-ROM) to XP.

Audio driver problem after upgrading OS from Windows 98 to xp

You could also try:

Do you have Service Pak 2 installed, it has a lot of updated drivers.

Remove all audio devices in the control panel > System > Hardware tab > Device Manager. Then reboot and let XP redetect the audio hardware.

Another idea is to run Windows Update and see if there's an update to the driver.

Hope that helps...

Networking probs.

Your running a windows 98 server? Do you not mean Windows NT server?
Windows 98 was not made to server as a server, there is no inherit file security permissions in place; just simple file/folder sharing.

If you need a simple file server, I would upgrade your 98 machine to windows 2000 or NT4.

Windows XP Professional works as a much more effective simple file server with much better security features.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
