    Also, is there anything important on the drive, does it matter if you lose any files, if not, try re-installing windows.

    Shouldn't have anything to do with the XMS memory.



    Can you get into Dos prompt? If so, check to see if himem.sys exists in your C: drive.



    if you in dos-prompt: type:



    Dir himem.sys



    does it show up?

Get hold of a win 98 boot disc (search the net) as it will have the files you are looking for, i am sure. copy them to your hard disc c:\windows or c:\windows\system
put them in both as i cant remember what one they go in. (it will not hurt in both).

good luck

I have a problem to install window 98 .


Another solution is to download and install Microsoft Virtual PC in XP, create a Virtual PC drive, and install Windows 98 onto the Virtual PC drive. This works fine if you want to run Win 9X programs which don't require access to USB ports on your computer. If you need Windows 98 to have full access to all of the computer hardware, then use palaboy's solution.

Win 32 application


You didnt specify the version of Windows your using however,
This issue is commonly caused by corrupt bad, or missing files, The program is not compatible with your version of Windows, or your hardware is incompatible. You must meet or exceed all system requirements for the program. If you downloaded the program from the internet verify the download was not corrupt. If installed from the cd-rom, check the disc is clean and free of scratches and reinstall. Replace missing windows files using SFC.

Have your Windows Cd available.
Open Run-->Type SFC /SCANNOW
This command will run the windows file protection utility that will replace missing or corrupt windows files.

Good Luck

Msdos problem


thats cause you are running the wing 98 of the same hard drive that you are trying to format. What you need to do is create a boot disc. boot from that disc and then format.

you can also boot from a win 98 cd to format as well.. If you have problems doing that let me know and i can walk you through it :)

Those registry mechanics are notorious for screwing up your registry. Unless you have a backup of your registry that you can load, you'll have to reinstall windows.

Microsoft Windows 98 for PC Problem is there any software driver for pen drive so that my win98 o.s. computer can detect any type or companies pen drive plz tell me


wow, the 90's are a calling... sure their is a roumor of a usb pen driver for win 98' ....

 

Windows 98, especially in it's second edition (also known as Windows 98SE), handles USB fairly well, however there are no generic/universal mass storage device drivers preinstalled in the operating system, so you will need to install some additional drivers for it. Some manufacturers do however, provide the Windows 98 drivers on CD, others have them available to download, and others simply do not have them available at all!!!!!!!

 

generic Windows 98SE USB mass storage device drivers:

 

http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/drivers/nusb31e.exe

 

instructions?? :

  1. Download the exe file to the desktop
  2. Remove ALL drivers for USB flash drives in Device Manager
  3. Remove ALL drivers for any USB 2.0 controllers (many have an uninstall option)
  4. Remove ALL unknown devices from Device Manager (*carefull)
  5. Run the exe file you downloaded, and follow the instructions, rebooting after installation
  6. When the computer boots up again, it may detect new USB 2.0 controllers, in which case you may need to reboot again

 

as always good luck! now im going to go back to my windows 95 and play Bioshock on full graphics!! excuse me = )

Gateway 7330GZ will not follow through at start up


At startup, hold down F8 key. select safe mode start. allow windows to guide you from there. if no-go, then repeat but choose dos prompt only, then insert a win 98 startup disk and run scan-disk on your drive. if no-go, in worst case, try to delete the pagefile.sys file from dos prompt (you may need to change file attributes from read-only and hidden and system to toggled-opposite-read, not hidden, not system). and repeat above steps
