I want to upgrade from windows 98 to windows 2000 but i can not find any one that sells the cd software


You will be luckier to purchase a copy of Windows XP, This is later than Windows 2000 and is better.

I have windows me 98 and I can not download mircosoft words or update the computer. I know in the end I will have to buy a disk to update the computer. I was wondering if there is anything else I can...


I'm very sorry to tell you, but anything below Windows 2000 is no longer supported.

Microsoft announced back in July 11th 2006, that they will no longer support them.

I would highly recommend getting a new computer. JUST THE TOWER. You can still use your mouse, keyboard, monitor, speakers.

If your computer came with windows 98, it is very old. If you try and upgrade your operating system to xp, your system will run very slow unless you upgrade your hardware. And its really not worth it.

When I turn on my dell optiplex GX1 A message come up , reinstall ''windows 2000 root7/system32/ntoskrnl.exe.'' I can get to the F-8 start up section where the safe mode , reboot , and others are , but...


That will work, but you may also consider using that windows xp disk to upgrade, it'll fix the problem plus give you an upgrade. Kinda kills two birds with one stone.

I bought a new laptop tried to install software for my all-in-one printer but the disk handles windows 98,me,2000,xp I have vista


Hi Stoney520, Use your search window and go to your model of Printer, eg, Hewlet Packare 1350 and click the search button. after you get to your appropriate printer manufacturer they will have upgrade software for Windows Vista. Its usually free because everybody upgrades.Good Luck.

I have bouht hp deskjet d1500 series ihave fitted it but it said ihave to upgrade my computer to 200 from 98 please could you helpme thankyourita


  The problem is that this particular Deskjet does not have any software drivers that are compatible with Windows 98.  Only for Operating Systems that are running Windows 2000 or later. Which includes XP and Vista. The only alternative is to do some research on other printers and make sure that they will be compatible with windows 98.
 Of course, there is always an option to upgrading your computer to  Windows 2000 or Xp....

Big problem no windows 98 un-locking Key


if the windows xp isn't an upgrade from 98 then it will install on your computer over the 98 without problem, bearing in mind that all information on the disk will be lost once you format it with the disk, but if it's an upgrade disk you might have to check with your friends to see if they have the same version of 98, the other thing if the computer came with 98 installed the product key should be on the case on the back or the side is normal postioning for this altho some techs use to put in the inside of the case.
hope this helps.

Delete operating system


Use the restore disk that came with the 4505 to restore it , then upgrade it to 98 with an upgrade disk. These can be found online still of ya search around or at a neighbors house *wink*
I believe the 5190 disks wil not work as they have the incorrect drivers for the other system.

I have the Windows 98 disk not have lost the key codes, I am trying to reinstall this onto a new hard drive with no operating system so I can then upgrade to windows xp, help anyone?


You don't need a windows 98 disk to install XP. It will load directly from your Cd drive. You have to set the bios to be the first boot disk. It is much easier to install XP on an empty drive than to upgrade.
