Windows xp uses virtual memory which is a partition on your hard drive. do a defrag on your hard drive. where your windows parameters is located, make sure virtual memory is set to automatic. if you can afford it increase your on board RAM to at least 512.

Installing the jumpstart advanced 1stgrade cd rom that has 4 cds to it and I can't get it to install.


Jumpstart advanced 1stgrade cd rom installation.

System Requirements
Windows: 98/ME/2000/XP; Pentium II 266MHz (Pentium II 300MHz or faster for XP); 64 MB RAM (128 MB RAM for XP); 100 MB HD; 12x CD-ROM drive; 16-Bit color; Windows compatible sound card

If you are installing on a newer OS ie Vista, or Win 7, due to software incompatibility the software might not install, or even you can install the software might no work.

You can try using the "compatibility mode" in Vista or Win 7 to install the programs as "administrator" but no guarante this will work.

Alternatively, you can get a newer version which is compatible to your Operating System.

Hope it helps.

Will Windows XP work on a Compaq 5020?


Yes, but it will be somewhat slow on such a old computer. I would recommend getting a new computer or buying a newer used computer, for example from ebay.

Relating to ram


I am not sure what motherboard you have, but I would suspect that your computer will take at least 2 sticks of 512 MB each.
You didn't say what operating system you are using. If you are using Windows 98, 128 MB is fine. If you are using Windows XP, you should have at least 10x that, or 1GB to run correctly.
You really do need to know how much memory your computer will support, so you can go on the manufacturer's site and look it up or use the manual that came with the computer, if you still have it.

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.

The bulletted list contains the system requirements from Valusoft on this game:
  • Operating System: Windows® 98/Me/XP
If you are running win XP, then you probably meet the OS, Processor, and RAM specs.
  • DirectX®: 9.0
To find your version of direct x, click run and type dxdiag in the command box. The Direct X version is on the main page of the Direct X diagnostics page.
  • Processor: Pentium® III 700 MHz or 100% compatible (Recommended: Pentium III 1 GHz or higher.)
  • RAM: 128 MB (256 MB Recommended)
  • Hard Drive Space: 500 MB Free
  • Drives: 8x CD-ROM
If you are running Win 98 or Me, right click my computer and click on properties. The general tab of the system properties will tell you the CPU, Operating system, and RAM. (Almost all CD-ROM drives fit this minimum spec.)
  • Video Cards: 32 MB DirectX compliant video card (Recommended: 64 MB DirectX compliant video card), DriectX compliant sound card.
To find your video adapter, go to:
Start/control panel/system and on the hardware tab click device manager. Then click the + sign next to display adapter. Please report back what under display adapter.
(if it says Intel, Sis, or VIA, you have onboard graphics and the game will not work) You will need an upgraded video adapter to play the game.

WINDOWS 98


You probably don't want to hear this but I really do not recommend that you do this.
The reason has to do with your hardware.

System Requirements for Windows 98:
486DX 66 megahertz (MHz) or faster processor (Pentium CPU recommended)
16 megabytes (MB) of memory (24 MB recommended).
A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT32 drive requires up to 255MB of hard drive space
VGA Graphics

The minimum hardware requirements for Windows XP Home Edition are:
Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended)
At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)
At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk
Super VGA Graphics

To be honest the posted minimum requirements for XP have long been considered a joke. A system twice as powerful as they recommend will probably still run slower than your current system with 98.
I am of course assuming that Windows 98 was originally installed on your system and it has circa 1998 hardware.
