Updating video driver windows 98

17 Feb

But from what I've read, the "Add/Remove Programs" process described below has changed a bit.There's more than one way to start the Vista version of add/remove but the one which works for everyone (apparently) is to open "My Computer" and then click the "Uninstall or change a program" item which appears towards the top of the window.The picture above is Chaos Manor Associate Eric Pobirs, who has been testing Windows 98 from earliest beta. We have had off and on problems with installations.One comparatively late beta installation was so awful that we had to reset the BIOS on one Pentium Pro system; W 98 was rewriting the BIOS cache and messed things up so badly that the machine would not even boot from a DOS disk. On another we could use BIOS setup software to reset everything to defaults.

You should be able to use the display driver that you installed natively before starting this procedure.Lately I have been seeing Explorer crash for no reason, but I blush to say that while I have what I think was the release copy of W 98, I have not installed the shrink-wrapped copy they sent.Friday, November 13: I have done the shrink-wrap install.Although Windows 98 has been out of general circulation for well over a decade now, it might come as a surprise to some people that it’s still actively in use, especially in a business or specialized environment for running old software.There is actually a third party Service Pack for Windows 98 Second Edition which is still being updated well into 2013, even though Microsoft ended their support for Windows 98 on the 11th of July 2006!
