Lost authenication code for an older emachine with Windows 98

I sold my old computer in a garage sale but I could not find the book for the authenication code to put in when it rebooted. How and where can I direct the person who purchased it where to go so they can use their computer they bought from me? There is a serial number on the back of the computer but we need the authenication code to reboot to use.

    I am working with their online chat service now. I do not know yet if they can fix my problem. thank you for something though when I had nothing.

    I still need help. The help I received from the last person - good website - but they were not able to help with the Windows 98 system on the computer or give me the authenication code after giving them the serial number and model number. Anyone else?

compaq is HP so best is to ask them, there, now here.

all PCs this old are dead battery ,
RTC= real time clock chip says IM DEAD, but is battery dead ,..

remove the coin cell, and put in a new one.
end story.
then set time .
best is to set time in BIOS setup. 1st.

this Compaq is 18 years old now. or 126 dog years.
id , push it off a cliff on the 4th July with fireworks. and all.
let me guess its XP the VIRUS magnet.
some this old are windows 98
a hopeless case there, no? no support, no books and no updates.
the books at HP are long gone
so now all books are , sold by horders. $$$
it can be costly and dangerous to deal with folks like that.

the book you lost , , the answer is on page 18
seen here
see coin, remove it and put in new one. end story.

Wireless set up with Omnibook XE2-DB Windows 98


there is no support for PC that old at all. and for sure windows 98
heck goodWill stores , throws those in the trash help,
they are no longer viable. period
same store sells $10 laptops that are 10 years old with Windows 7
and 100000 better than that old hunk of junk,
sorry but that is a fact.

RadioLan 140 PCMCIA (now called PC-card, i like the old name too)
what make you think they still in business or even sell driver for it.
company from 1999 , the book on it says
that card came with a Disk to install the driver, lost that.
good luck finding THAT. (omg, so rare... )

http://manualzz.com/doc/769802/radiolan-140-mobilink-user-guide


this old note book , no longer supported by HP or MS
has 1 USB port , no wifi, no ethernet, yes, dial up modem.
if USB works (test it , i bet it dont")

they try to buy a USB,wifi dongle that has windows 98
drivers with it. Be hard to do and the software if downloaded
will be rife with viruses...

The choices are , again.
1: that dial up port, there called the modem jack.
2: PCARD that has drivers for wifi, seems your are (rare to none)
3: USB wifi with win98 drivers.
4: USB with ethernet port, and win98 driver (most dont)

or get a real PC> from Goodwill for like $10 ,
or 2010 and newer PC of any kind from anyplace.
get one with W7 and newer OS for full support.
this thing you have is like finding parts for a Dueseberg car.

these old laptops are seen in garage sales for $1
due to the lack of support. and the fact that putting say
a new HDD is 100x more.

What type of oil is required for a 2002 Chevy Tahoe?


For the engine SAE 5W-30 motor is recomended. It should have an API service rating of SJ or SM.Most older oils are not sold any more so you should be safe buying from any retailers. Be wary of Garage sales, car swaps and flea markets. I have seen some pretty old oil on sale there.

Apears that your installer CD has got corrupt. Try installing from a fresh copy of Windows 98 (preferably Windows 98 Second Edition).

I have lost a key from the keyboard. Can I get a replacement? It is the D key.


Hi Memer,
I haven't ever seen just one key being sold, but you might be able to pick up an old keyboard at a garage sale for next to nothing and just replace the one key from it yourself. Otherwise, ebay sells new keyboards for around $20US.
Or just type without the D key. Goo Luck! ;)
