Plug and play problems on new Win 98 install on Tecra 8000

I had to format the C: and reinstall Win 98SE on my Tecra 8000. I downloaded the Neomagic display driver. All of which works fine except for three plug and play alerts on start up, one for a monitor and two 'unknowns'. I can find no way in device manager for disabling the WIN98 plug and play routines and alerts on start up. Please have you any ideas how I can solve this?

Toshiba tecra 9000 wont start

Blue screens are generally operating system failure. You will need to reinstall your XP home. Format the drive NTFS, instead of FAT32. If you have any problems during or after the reload, then the hard drive is the failure and will need replaced.

  6. confirm all data will be erased
  7. reboot with floppy in and at the a:\ prompt run FDISK to see if the full size of the hard drive is available. (option 4)
  8. If everything is normal exit fdisk reboot with floppy, choose with cdrom support, type in the cdrom drive letter (usually e) and cd Win98(change directory Win98)
  9. at the win98 prompt type setup (press enter) and follow the prompts.
