I have the hook up for my old Atari 2600 but it won't work how can you text to see if power cord or something else is broken

Well you could try and buy a new cable to see if it makes a difference or not.
If still no luck with a new video cable then it is an internal
issue with the console.

Driver for v220 logitech mouse os win 98


I'm afraid the USB mouses will not work on windows 98, please use the adapter so it fits into a ps2 port. (the old mouse plug) then of course you can check the logitechs website if they offer any drivers for windows 98 but its very unlikely.

Actually I looked myself and the oldest they offer is xp.,en

so it would be a good time to buy a new computer, yours must be around 12 years old. considering that 5 year old machine is considered old, your 12year old machine is ancient.

How to use xf551 disk drive.

Here's how these old suckers work. You have to have an old (latest - late 1980s) DOS-based PC with the proper attachment cable for such a drive. Preferably an ATARI computer. You have to leave the disk drive flip switch OPEN until DOS loads, or it will give you an error message. After the old clunk DOS-based computer is finished loading, THEN you can close the flip switch (with a floppy disk in, of course). I can't give you exact instructions b/c I don't know exactly what kind of ancient PC you have. Here is a link to an YouTube video showing you about what to expect :(1986 Tandy):

Have fun! These are real pains in the neck compared to what we have now.
