I would expect it would be much easier...and probably cheaper in the long run...to replace the computer. This machine does not meet minimum specs for Windows 7, and XP is no longer supported. Vista is an option, but requires as much in system resources as 7 and 7 is a much better (IMHO) system. This machine uses a Pentium III CPU and won't manage sufficient RAM to do a decent job with a modern OS. Windows 7 has an extensive driver library built in.

Hope that's helpful.

I have Gateway 98 Windows and was trying to download Itunes for Ipod shuffle. I was told that Itunes would not download to 98 windows and that I need software to update computer. Was told I needed...


It appears that you are using Windows 98 as your operating system, if this is the case it is not compatible with the newer Ipod software. The new Ipod's require at least Windows XP service pack 2, Vista, or newest Mac software. Here is a link to Apple's website so you can check the system requirements in the support section. http://www.apple.com/support/

You will need to buy an original Windows 98 (or newer, such as Windows XP) installation disk and Certificate of Authenticity with 25-digit registration key, then use it to reinstall Windows on the laptop. Nothing from your home PC will do this for you, unfortunately. You can probably find a Windows 98 installation disk fairly cheaply on the internet.

Windows 98 SE


if you need an operating system and would not mind using linux (an alternative to windows) look on the www.puppylinux.com site and see if you would like to try it. the download is about 80meg and it runs very fast on all the computers i have used it with. or try looking on softpedia for a free download of the outdated windows xp install disks. or you can buy some disks from ebay. but i reccomend trying puppy linux, it is free and you have nothing to lose.(the disk is a live boot disk, so it should just run off the cd)

Hard drive not working properly


What is the original OS? If it's XP you can't install 98 over the top of it without formatting it to FAT32 first.
