Save your self.

UPGRADE.

You can get a nice net book for about $300.

I also have a win 98 machine that did not turn out so well with an update. Should have spent good money on a new machine.

Hope this tip helps.
It was to late for me.

Need the driver for a SMARTDISK model FDUSB-B2 external floppy disk drive unit for a old Gateway Windows 98 computer


Since it is a USB device, does Windows 98 automatically load the device-driver when it is connected? If not, connect to the Internet, and run Windows Update (http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com) and let it scan for updates. When it completes, look at the "optional" updates -- there may be a device-driver that can be downloaded.

Good morning, I have a windows 98 os, mouse (m-rn67) stopped working. no luck using newer mice, doesn't recognize. can i update computer using usb w/driver for newer mouse?


Hi janettgordon,
I am not exactly sure what you mean by "can i update computer using usb w/driver for newer mouse", but if you want to know if you can update the USB component of Windows 98 I regret to say to you that it's not possible.
USB support on Windows 98 always been tricky and Microsoft never officially supported it before Windows 98 SE. I don't know what version you have, but either way USB support under Windows 98 never been great. You also need to keep in mind that Windows 98 is quite an old system and no recent hardware like mouse, keyboard, printers is supported on it anymore.
My advise would be to upgrade your current Windows installation to Windows XP or Windows 2000. A friend can probably lend you a copy and I'm 100% positive that it will solve your problem with newer mices. You will need to make sure your computer can handle Windows XP or 2000, but they can run under pretty old hardware so it should not be a problem.
Cheers!

Product key of windows 98


Asking for a "product-key" is SOFTWARE PIRACY.

Note that Microsoft stopped issuing security-updates for Windows 98 several years ago, and will stop issuing security-updates for Windows 2000 after July 2010.

So, install Windows XP, or buy a new computer, and a newer version of Microsoft Windows (Vista or 7) will be preinstalled.

It appears that you are using Windows 98 as your operating system, if this is the case it is not compatible with the newer Ipod software. The new Ipod's require at least Windows XP service pack 2, Vista, or newest Mac software. Here is a link to Apple's website so you can check the system requirements in the support section. http://www.apple.com/support/

HP ScanJet 3300C won't load and run on computer. Need update for Windows XP from Windows 98 maybe. How to do that.


I would rather believe that you need an update from HP. But if you haven't updated your windows 98, it wouldn't hurt to go out to microsoft update site and let it run a scan on your system, it will tell you what you need. For HP, go out to hp.com then click on to support, then find updates and downloads. This should do it for you.
