Had a friend bring me a computer to work on for her. She is running windows 98SE on it, she said since someone else put that operating system on it she has had nothing but problems...she never could completely explain what problems. I myself am just a newbie at really trying to rebuild computers. But I do know that some computers just wont take upgraded operating systems. Well when I took off the heat sink fan to clean it I noticed that she has a....

98SE will run well on it. How much ram does she have?

What motherboard is this?

Win98SE will run on 128MB RAM just fine.

I'd run Memtest86 or Memtest86+ on the thing to make sure all is well before proceeding.

Better late than never. KachiWachi is right about the amount of RAM. Win 98 runs like a charm w/ 128 meg. Actually it will run w/ as little as 24 Meg albeit slower. I would suggest clearing the bios, since some mobos keep track of the hardware installed in the bios and any changes require that the bios be cleared and the hardware redetected by the system automatically.

leo7128,

From what you've said it sounds like someone has upgraded this machine without first sourcing the driver disks first..

Win98SE was designed to run comfortably on such systems, however unlike Windows XP it did not contain a host of drivers for third-party hardware. So you will probably need a Win98SE CD as well as the driver disks for any motherboard components and third-party items.

Note on chipset drivers: In order for this Win98SE system to be stable it will require that the correct motherboard chipset drivers be installed. The chipset controls the motherboard. If there are any other exclamation marks in Device Manager please note them down, since before you can install drivers for the hardware plugged into the board you need to ensure that the board itself (as in chipset), is running smoothly.


Identifying your Hardware

As suggested, first establish what the motherboard is. From here you can make sure the board is setup correctly and identify the board's capabilities as well as RAM capacity. I would suggest you run Belarc Advisor (see my sig) - give it a shot and see what it lists; hopefully it will identify your motherboard which you will be able to list here.

Hope this helps
