Yes Window's 95 can still be used today but it would not be very good at not run as well and it would be very limited then with being used now a days. It would not work as well and not run as well either and not be as fast like other programs are now.

Yes, but most modern programs wont work and internet browsers are very unsafe. Most or all banking sites etc wont allow for connection from unsecure browser. You wont be able to play majority of movies because file system limitations and lack of proper codecs. PC with Win 95 is pretty much limited to software what was available in mid 90's

Performance and security would limit use. Old programs written for 95 and isolated from internet... it would be ok.

Install windows 95 from floppy


Microsoft Windows 95 employs the use of a bootable floppy disk to begin the installation of the Windows 95 operating system or to troubleshoot problems with the system. Microsoft Windows 95 uses the MS-DOS system to boot the computer first and then loads the Windows 95 operating system onto the machine. Windows 95 Boot Disks may be created in one of two ways: The Startup disk may be created from within Windows or a boot disk may be created from a free downloaded boot disk image. After the boot disk is created the disk may be used to boot the computer and install or troubleshoot Windows 95.

Click "Start" and then click "Settings" in Windows 95. Click the "Control Panel" option. Click "Add and Remove Programs." Click "Startup Disk" and then click "Create." Insert the blank floppy disk into the disk drive. Click "OK." The operating system will create the Windows 95 boot disk. Click "OK" when the disk is finished. Create the Windows 95 Boot Disk using Downloaded Boot Disk Image Open a Web browser and navigate to the boot disk image site (See "Below"). http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm Download the Windows 95 boot disk image and save the .EXE file to the desktop. Click the .EXE file to unzip the enclosed files. The formatting application will start. Insert the blank floppy disk into the disk drive and click "OK." The Windows 95 boot image will be created on the blank floppy disk. Use the Windows 95 Boot Disk Insert the Windows 95 boot up disk into the computer's floppy disk drive. Power the computer down by clicking "Start" and then clicking "Shutdown." Power on the computer with the Windows 95 boot disk in the floppy disk drive. The computer will boot up into MS-DOS to enable installation or troubleshooting of Windows 95.

I have a original game PGA Tour 96, EA for windows 95. I want install this game in XP SO, but its impossible for me.


I assume you meant to say XP OS.
Many older games are not compatible with the newer operating systems.
Use your old computer with the Windows 95 operating system installed.
If you REALLY want to use the game, find an older Windows 95 computer
and buy it.

I own the DK Multimedia "My Amazing Human Body" CD, version for use with Windows 95. I am unable to use it with my Windows XP operating system. I understand that you might offer an upgrade...


In your case..the fix is to run the program in compatibility with windows 95..
Insert the disk ..and after that if it let's you install it is great ..Install it ..and after that click on the icon (right ) choose compatibility ..and in there tick the case that says "run this program in compatibility mode for : " and choose windows 95 ..
If it do not want to install it at all ..repeat the same thing with the execution icon on the disk ..
Insert the disk ..than in my computer folder..locate the cd icon ...click right on it ..select compatibility ..than tick same case...to run it as windows 95..and will work ..
In case the feature is not available cause the program is on disk and can not accept properties changes...click right on the icon of the cd ....choose explore... and it will reveal all that it has inside..
Copy all files in another folder on your hard disk ..in a location of your choice ..Than the properties will be able to be changed..and repeat the operation I says ..Locate the executable icon ...click right /properties//compatibility ..and select to run in compatibility with windows 95 ..and there will be no more issues..

Driver for Tident TD9440 pci video card mb


Unfortunately this card is very old by todays standards and considered obsolete. You will not be able to find any windows XP drivers for it as it was manufactured way before windows XP was released. There are drivers for windows 95/98 available if you had one of these OS's available. They are available at http://www.video-drivers.com/drivers/76/76393.htm

Hope this helps!

I have a hard drive with windows 95 and i am trying to install windows xp professional addition but it comes back saying you can't intall this version of windows on this system


Windows 95 uses the FAT 32 system and uses a boot-up partition that will not recognize a windows xp default system install that uses the NTFS system. You can do it the other way around though, if XP is installed first, or another drive you have with XP on it is the first drive set to boot in your BIOS XP will recognize WIN 95 on its FAT 32 partition and either let you boot from that partition when you first start up your computer or when in XP right clicking a WIN 95 application and setting its properties to run as a Win 95 environment. Solution I would use if I were you would be to download Microsoft's free Virtual PC application from their website and run a full version of WIN 95 in its own virtual environment. Win 95 will run about 10 times faster than it ever would on its own partion if run under XP.

QuickCam VC bought in 1999, have not used, now CDRam is out of date has Windows 95 I'm using XP professional


Logitech has not updated the drivers for Windows XP. If this is the "parallel port" version of the camera, it will probably only work on Windows 95/98/ME computers. If it has a USB connector, Windows XP may be able to recognize it without using the Logitech software.

Will Dell Axim sync with Outlook 2000 on Windows 95?


It should if you have USB on the W95 machine. ActiveSync is compatable with W95. It worked for me with Outlook 98 on a Win95 laptop synching to a PC2000 PDA (Jornada), however I was using a serial cable.
