Re: computer system problem
Your hard disk might be SATA interface, and XP don't have access to this type of hardisk. It requires RAD driver for that type of disk.
1). You can make your HDD accessable to XP by disabling the SATA mode in your system BIOS setup. Then XP will access your HDD and it will be installed.
2). You can also make your HDD accessable to XP by atchi driver. Go to your motherboard manufacturer site and download SATA driver according to model number. This may be compressed or auto extract exe. Extract all files and copy it into a floppy disk. Then start your XP and press F6 at first screen, then it will be prompted to insert RAD driver from setup, follow the instructions and XP will be installed on your system.

You asked this question in 2008 and got an answer. Did you go to Crucial and run their scan?
Download and run Belarc. It will tell you more about your computer. Based on the information you have provided, your system will not support more than 256mb or 512mb of memory. It might support a 120GB disk.
I'd throw it in the junk pile and buy a new computer.
Yes, you can upgrade from Win98 to WinXP. The minimum hard drive requirements for WinXP is 1.5GB and the minimum RAM requirement is 64MB. You will also need a CD ROM for the install. Now those are the minimum requirements so don't expect it to go very fast. If possible I would recommend you upgrade to Win2000. WinXP and Win2000 are almost identical. The minimum hard drive for Win2000 is 650MB and for RAM it is 64MB. So you could still use your 4GB hard drive and have plenty of room. You will need a CD ROM for the Win2000 also. Good luck if you have anymore questons let me know,
