Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC

I have an old Sony Viao model PCG-962A loaded with Win Millenium OS. Its capacity is up to Win2000. Will it be possible for me to just re-format the HD and install Win98? Thank you.

Hi,

Yes certainly you can just reformat the hard drive and install Win 98 on the machine. You will no doubt find that the operating system runs very well as the computer was built for Win98 in the first place.

However you may find the you might have difficulty with the USB 2 drivers as they do not come with the driver cab package. You should be able to get the drivers from Sony's support website as well as any other drivers you may need.


Regards.

Sounds like your OS is corrupt. Try a "repair install" of Windows by booting from the windows disk. if that does not work, you may have to run the factory recovery program.. consult your owners manual.
