Question about Dell Inspiron 7000/7500

How do I force XP to accept a Windows 98 driver?

I need to force Windows XP to use a Windows 98 driver. I understand this may cause system instability. My XP audio driver is not compatible with my DVD player (I get video but no audio). The DVD player works fine when I install 98 so I'd like to see if my Windows 98 driver will work but XP will not let me reinstall the 98 driver. I get the error message "The class installer has denied the request to install or upgrade this device" (ESS Device Manager).

Flash drive isn't being recognized need to back up


Hello,

Regarding on your problem, in windows xp and up version of windows operating system, plug and play device is easy and no need to install its drivers manually cause the computer will automatically install its drivers. But in the case of Windows 98 you have to install your USB Driver manually in order to be recognize by the system. So my recommendation please insert the CD driver or load the driver of your USB and run the setup.exe to install the USB Driver.

Thanks

Please send win98se driver for hp laptop model no. nx7300


Hello sir.

I understand that you need windows 98 drivers for your Notebook.

I have searched the HP website and found the drivers for the following operating systems.

Microsoft Windows 2000
Microsoft Windows XP Home edition
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Microsoft Windows Vista Home
Microsoft Windows Vista Enterprise
Microsoft Windows Vista Business

But not for Microsoft Windows 98...

Windows 98 is considered to be obsolete now. As far as I know no one will provide drivers for this model Notebook for Windows 98. Please install atleast Windows 2000 in the Notebook for the drivers to work correctly.

For other operating system drivers other than Windows 98 could be found in the following link..

I have a lexmark X63all-in-one and the driver files are not being accepted by my new dell inspiron 1525 windows vista.


Hi,
Make sure you are installing the proper Windows Vista drivers. I guess for the given printer Vista driver are not available. Sorry lexmark has not yet released Windows Vista driver for the given model. They only support this model in Windows 98/ME/2000/XP.Does Vista have a ADD PRINTERS Wizard (like XP does)? If so you might try running it and see if Microsoft included built-in support. Or you might experiment with other generic models to see if you can get basic printing features. To download the drivers for 98/ME/2000/XP, Click on the below and select the operating system and download.

To add a printer in Vista, click on the link and follow the steps..

Hopefully it should work..
Thank you.......
