Question about MetroBook VL Plus C-266 Notebook

Open Question

Metrobook II Greetings, I recently inherited a Metrobook II laptop that seems to run fine. The current OS is Win 95 and I would like to install Win 98SE. Ideally, I plan to reformat the HD and perform a clean install of Win 98, but before I do that, I would like to back up the drivers for video, audio, etc. My question is, do you know where I can download drivers for this model laptop and possibly the manual? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks. Albert

How or where do i get a windows 7 boot download to copy to disc to sort my omnibook xe3 out it currently has win98se installed but thirs allsorts missing.


Upgrade the memory and try win xp you'll see better performance. You can download win 7 from lots of places free.

It is the license that you have to purchase that people seem to be trying to find a get around for.

Just go to Microsoft website or search for win 7 iso

Good luck and thanks

Software windows 98se


It would be helpful if we knew the Make, Model of Laptop. If the Laptop is that old the hardware specs may not support a software upgrade to say Win XP or above. Windows 98se drivers may be a bit difficult to find. The software has been un-supported for many years, soon XP will be on that list. But it's possible with a search of the Make, Model of Computer and the OS.

F5d5050 Belkin USB 10/100 Ethernet Adaptor - Does it work with Windows 7 64 bit OS? I have spent hours trying to install a Swann and a Digitech product but none seem to work with the above OS. Any...


Hi,

You cannot install this adapter in a Win 7 computer because the drivers are not compatible with Win 7.
So far Belkin haven't updated the drivers for win 7 OS. The latest drivers for this adapter is compatible only with

" Windows 98SE, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP 32-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit "

Click here to see the belkin compatible drivers in the website.

With Regards,
Prema.

How to upgrade win 95 to winxp without removing files installed


A computer running Windows 95 WILL NOT RUN Windows XP in most cases. Post all of your hardware details and we can explore that further.

Most programs that run on Windows 95 WILL NOT RUN under Windows XP easily. There are some compatibility things you can try for each one, but most simply will crash, and some will seem to work for a while then crash at inopportune moments.

What you should do is buy an newer computer with Windows XP, remove your current hard drive, and put your current hard drive as a second drive in the new computer. You will have access to your documents, but your programs will not run.

Frogger for Windows 97


As far as I know, the music does not play on a SATA drive, or on a NT based operating system. It seems to only run on the DOS based operating system, like Win 95, 98, 98SE, and ME. Frogger works fine (with music) on my older Pentium 4 with Win 98SE.

  3. at the prompt change to cd drive E:\ (press enter)
  4. at the E:\ prompt type cd Win98 (press enter)
  5. at the E:\Win98 prompt type format C:\ (press enter)
  6. confirm all data will be erased
  7. reboot with floppy in and at the a:\ prompt run FDISK to see if the full size of the hard drive is available. (option 4)
  8. If everything is normal exit fdisk reboot with floppy, choose with cdrom support, type in the cdrom drive letter (usually e) and cd Win98(change directory Win98)
  9. at the win98 prompt type setup (press enter) and follow the prompts.

How do I transfer files from Windows 98se to Vista on my new computer


If you have a CD/DVD writer, you can write the files to a CD-R. If this is not an option, take out the HDD from he Win 98se machine and install it in the vista machine, if you have room. you might need to disconnect your CD/DVD drive in your vista machine to free up the EIDE ribbon cable.

option 3:
Win 98se can do USB, but not very well. And drivers are hard to come by for usb flash drives. Vista/XP/ win 2000 can handle them without needing a driver disk. Therefore you will need a new OS for the win 98se machine. How about linux, it can handle usb flash drives very well. My advice use Ubuntu linux, you don't need to install it, just get a boot CD. it boots the OS from the CD, does not install or format anything. Use that OS to copy the necessary files to the flash drive. This option requires you to have a cd burner or access to one, so not really saving any time.

You did not give ne a lot of information about your setup. Like do you have a cd/dvd burner, any usb ports, any spare HDD, any external media storage. Do you have any burning software like nero. So pick which option that is viable.

You can also take your computer to best buy and have them back up the data on a CD/DVD disc for a price. Best Buy is not the only shop that does this type of service, check in your area.
