My flash drive does not work. No flash drive icon


The most likely solution to this problem is to go to the computer manufacturers website and find the drivers for your flash drive and install them.

After this, your flash drive should work fine.

My icons on my desktop are gone. How do I restore them or put new ones on Windows 98?


Hi hkotterlei
To create new icons, do this
I stopped using Windows 98 ages ago, So, the following instruction is from memory only.

From the Starts -> Program List
  • Locate the program for which you want an icon
  • Right click on it
  • A pop up menu appears
  • Select Create a desktop icon
A desktop icon will be created and placed on the desktop
You can go to that icon on the desktop and rename it by right clicking and ....
Do the above steps for any other programs for which you want an icon on the desktop.

Hope this will help you.
If it does help, please give a rating.
Have a very good day

Icons on desktop


The icons that flash are probably shortcuts that start with S. The S key is causing both problems most likely. There are screwed labeled with K or a unique icon. All located on the bottom of chassis below keyboard. Remove them and life up the keyboard. Do this while the power is off. Disconnect the ribbon cable from the keyboard and remove it. Power on the laptop and let it boot. Once its to the desktop you can see your result. Then all you need to do is pop out the S key and spray contact cleaner underneath rubber contact sheet. You may have to remove some screws.
