You can up grade from 98 to xp. As far as more speed & memory that comes from a few more components than just upgrading memory. It matters on the limits of what you already have. A larger hard drive & more memory definitly boost things up but your cpu's limits will determine the actual hardware/software upgrades your system can benifit from. You'll have to get the specs on maximums for your model. If you can tell us what you have now it would help to determine a better answer than guessing.

Upgrade for windows xp


You have a very old operating system. Check if your computer can work with higher operating systems. Windows XP copies are hard to find right now. I suggest you go for Windows 7 or 8.

My Operation system is window 98 and I wish to use USB memory strick, but I can install the driver for win 98


Both Microsoft and SanDisk stopped support for Windows 98 (that is the 1998 version of Windows) in the middle of 2008 (two years ago). So, if Windows 98 does not recognize the "plug-and-play" device (manufactured since the middle of 2008), then you'll have to upgrade your computer to Windows XP or Vista or 7, or use an "older" flash-drive that Windows 98 did support.

How can I put wireless adaptor on win 98 first edition


Good luck.

The first edition of Windows 98 lacked support for many devices. Windows 98 Second Edition added some support.

Can you find a "Windows 98 Second Edition Upgrade" CD-ROM and
license-key?


Search for a wireless-adapter that *CLEARLY* states that it is supported on Windows 98 SE.

It's time to "trash" that computer.

Find somebody who has an older Pentium 3 or Pentium 4 computer that is running Windows XP, and buy that computer from them.

I need a copy of windows xp with registry key


Contact any retail computer-store, or shop on eBay or AMAZON.
They can still sell you a "Windows XP Upgrade" kit,
to allow upgrades from Windows 98 (assuming that you still have your Windows 98 CD-ROM) to XP.

Upgrade NEC Versa VX


You can insert the Windows XP CD while logged on Win 98 and run a test from the CD. Obviously you need a larger Hard Disk and at least 126 MB RAM to bring XP to a usable speed. You can look for RAM upgrade options in this page.

AMD k6-2


the problem is xp which makes with an older K6-2 the clock speed lower. It takes a lot for a machine to run XP.
The best way is either go back to 98 or the only way could be ME.
not much what you can do about it otherwise

Windows 98 changing from dialup to high speed


You can do this, but I would not recommend it. Windows 98 is very susceptible to malware. You can get things just by going to the wrong website. These are called drive by downloads. It will get very slow from all of the malware running on the system very fast.

Look into downloading a Linux distribution like Ubuntu, or PCLinuxOS. You will be able to find a linux distro that will fit on your old computer and be very secure. Look at Distrowatch for many more options.

It is not possible to use Windows 98 on the Internet and remain secure. If you post the model/serial number of the compaq computer, or its stats then we could tell you if you can upgrade it to XP or Windows 2000, but this may not be practical on older equipment.
