Do you mean you do not see color on your monitor display right now?

If so:
1) Find out your monitor model
2) Do a search naming your monitor model (ie) dell 783s) and download the driver specifically for windows 98
3) see below for accessing Device Manager to update the monitor driver:

Microsoft Windows 95, 98, and ME users enter the Windows Device Manager by clicking Start, Settings, Control Panel, System icon, and finally clicking the Device Manager tab.


Below is a basic example of what the Microsoft Window Device Manager may look like when open. Clicking on the below image will open a more readable version of this picture.

I bought jet flash 500 pendrive model TS4GJF500 I HAVE USE WIN 98 MY PEN DRIVE IS NOT DETECTED WHAT CAN I DO PLEASE GIVE ME A SOLN


Hi..

Windows 98 does not support Plug n Play Devices. So you have to download appropriate drivers from Microsoft Website. Though Windows 98SE ( Windows 98 Second Edition ) thought to be support USB Mass Storage Drives fairly, these drivers are not pre-installed with OS. You have to download Service packs to install these drivers.

Since Windows 98 have TWO versions, we have to download corresponding service packs .

You can
Download Service Packs for Windows 98 Here

Download Service Packs for Windows 98 SE (Windows 98 Second Edition) Here


To Know how to install these, please click on

You can find more details about this issue on this page

Thank You.

Message says that there is insuffient memory when trying to install or run Windoes 98Se on machine with 2MB Ram


FYI,
Minimum hardware requirements for Windows 98:
1. 486DX 66 megahertz (MHz) or faster processor (Pentium central processing unit recommended).
2. 16 megabytes (MB) of memory (24 MB recommended).
3. Hard disk space may range from between 120 MB and 295 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install.
4. A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT16 drive requires 225 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 165 MB and 355 MB, depending on your computer configuration and that options that you choose to install.
5. A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT32 drive requires 175 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 140 MB and 255 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install.
6. One 3.5-inch high-density floppy disk drive.
7. VGA or higher resolution (16-bit or 24-bit color SVGA recommended).

If your PC does not meet the above minimium requirements, you are bound to get errors popup installing or running software.

Hope it helps.

Windows 98 on dell inspirion d600 install problem


Installing Windows 98, is you need a start-up disk (floppy disk) first before you can use the Windows 98 cd. The start-up disk will perform the partitioning and formatting of the HD...doing this, you have to boot from floppy drive first---after partitioning and formatting, you have change again the boot sequence to boot from cd then you can start the installation of Windows 98.

I have a windows 98 system bios and i wish to Put a differnt Hard drive in that has windows xp on it . Is there a way to do this


Hi
It probably won't work. Win 98 machines not only had older BIOS but also the processor was older and most importantly the video was older. XP may just not be able to recognize these parts. In my lab I use an old Dell laptop that was made specifically for Win 98. I was able to install XP but the graphics stay in four color mode as there were no drivers ever written for XP. Also the hard drive with XP was probably formated using NTFS while Windows 98 (unless modified) only recognizes FAT. Good luck and sorry

I have a problem to install window 98 .


Another solution is to download and install Microsoft Virtual PC in XP, create a Virtual PC drive, and install Windows 98 onto the Virtual PC drive. This works fine if you want to run Win 9X programs which don't require access to USB ports on your computer. If you need Windows 98 to have full access to all of the computer hardware, then use palaboy's solution.

To use moserbare 1gb pen drive


sarwesh,
to use USB mass storage in Windows 98 you need to install drivers for your mass device. So,
  1. Findout if any CD/DVD shipped with your pendrive. Install driver from that to your Windows 98 PC, then you can use it.
  2. If you don't have any setup disk from manufacturer, there might be drivers and software prestored in your pen drive. Use this pendrive to any other PC with XP/Vista. Burn these files to any CD/DVD and then make install these drivers to your Windows 98 PC, after that you can use your pen drive on your Windows 98 PC.
  3. If you are not able to do step 2, then goto manufacturer's site select your model no. and download driver and install.

If still you didn't found. Tell me your pendrive manufacturer and model no. I will try to give you link.

Thanks
Iqbal

Windows 98 install


It could be a memory related problem. Try to test your memory module by installing it to a different system that is surely working. If that system restarts, then you must replace the memory module.
