Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a friend (senior citizen-fixed income) has Gateway Model on back TBR3450 PIII with W98. She needs a new printer but all new ones require W2000,ME or XP. I'll do the XP update for her but want the original machine specs before I do that. Cannot find this machine listed in Gateway's site, but there is an identical one on e-bay. Can anyone point me to the place to get specs for this?

I have had a look on the net but no sign of it anywhere .
well as long as the machine has the minimum ram 256mbs and enough disc space for xp, around 1gb it should be ok,may be a bit slow though.
back up her data before updating and make sure she has the win98 o/s disc in case things don't work out.

good luck
Terry

The speakers inside desktop computers (if it has one) are very small and do not produce a reasonable volume.
I suggest you purchase a powered stereo speakers and connect it to the audio out connector on the desktop computer. Powered speakers have better sound quality and adjustable volume controls as well as bass and treble controls.

    I need a diagram


    Check on the motherboard make and model number.
    Type this information into Google and then go to motherboard site, and they should have updates and a manual, which will have all the required information, hopefully.

    Is the printer compatable with the new laptop that I have just bought? My printer is an HP DeskjetF380 and my laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A300-1J1. Is there any simple functions that I can follow so that...


    If you’re new Toshiba laptop is running windows vista, the answer is yes. You will need to go to www.hp.com and click on the support tab. This will allow you to type in your model number of you printer so you can download the latest drivers for the printer. After you type in you model number and click search, the website will ask you what version of windows you are running. The options cover both Vista and windows XP. Just pick and you will be able to download the driver with software or just the driver.

    Have a friend (senior citizen-fixed income) using Gateway TBR3450 PIII W98 and needs new Printer that will only work with W2000/ME/XP. I'll do the XP update for her but I want the original PC specs...


    It's a while since I used Win 98, but as far as I remember, if you right-click the My Computer icon and select 'properties' the processor type, bus speed and memory info are listed on the General tab.

    Go to the Hardware tab, click 'Device Manager' and from there you can find details of all the installed hardware.

    Hope this helps,

    Matt.
