Installed windows 7 and now its giving error that disk is full and runs very slow


If you have an old copy of windows 98 or 95,I have in the past installed one of these and it repaired the disk while installing,then installed windows 7,you could also try a low levell format but would need an external enclosure or a live disk to run from or go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows-vista/check-your-hard-disk-for-errors and do a checkdisk scan(do this at night may take all night and sometimes never finishes)the last one wont require reinstalling windows.

Hi. Problem with windows 98. My computer went into safe mode, and the only way that I could get it back was to run the WINDOWS 98 disk that I had when it was new. I now find that I am not able to change...


You need to install a video driver for your video card. Do you know what video card is installed? Do you have the original install disks for the video card? For a machine that old, it may be hard to locate a driver.

I usually use Unknown Device Identifier (http://www.zhangduo.com/udi.html) to tell what drivers are missing, but I don't know if it works with Windows 98.

Message says that there is insuffient memory when trying to install or run Windoes 98Se on machine with 2MB Ram


FYI,
Minimum hardware requirements for Windows 98:
1. 486DX 66 megahertz (MHz) or faster processor (Pentium central processing unit recommended).
2. 16 megabytes (MB) of memory (24 MB recommended).
3. Hard disk space may range from between 120 MB and 295 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install.
4. A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT16 drive requires 225 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 165 MB and 355 MB, depending on your computer configuration and that options that you choose to install.
5. A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT32 drive requires 175 MB of free hard disk space, but may range from between 140 MB and 255 MB, depending on your computer configuration and the options that you choose to install.
6. One 3.5-inch high-density floppy disk drive.
7. VGA or higher resolution (16-bit or 24-bit color SVGA recommended).

If your PC does not meet the above minimium requirements, you are bound to get errors popup installing or running software.

Hope it helps.

Windows 98 on dell inspirion d600 install problem


Installing Windows 98, is you need a start-up disk (floppy disk) first before you can use the Windows 98 cd. The start-up disk will perform the partitioning and formatting of the HD...doing this, you have to boot from floppy drive first---after partitioning and formatting, you have change again the boot sequence to boot from cd then you can start the installation of Windows 98.
