Windows 98

I just reinstalled windows 98 as an alternative operating system in my desktop.

However, every time I reboot my system the theme reverts to Windows 98. 

Can anybody help?

My system details are as follows:

Operating system: 98/XP

RAM: 512MB

Processor: Intel  P2

Thanks in advance

I’ve a Pentium 4 machine and I unable to boot windows 98 from it. It seems that MSDOS.SYS file is corrupt.

When I put a working version that file get deleted by itself.

(There are some garbled characters in the MSDOS.SYS file. That’s why I think that file is corrupted)

I’m waiting for a solution for this.

Hello friends

I have just started using windows 8 CP, but I am facing some problems regarding the display drivers.

I have recently installed the Adobe Photoshop on my system, but it loads very slowly.

When I try to initialize it, it gives me an error.

The screenshot of the error is as follows:

Photoshop has encountered a problem with the display driver, and has temporarily disabled GPU enhancements.

Check the video card manufacture’s website for the latest software.

GPU enhancements can be enabled in the Performance panel of Preferences.

Hello, experts!

I was told that the prerequisite to the execution of PC Interfacing is a WIndows 98 or ME operating system. This, they say, is because the system of objects used is not supported by Windows XP. 

My dilemma starts here because when I try to run setup in Win98, I get an error message that forces the operating system to shut down before actually loading into Windows. 

Please help me figure this out. By the way, I have a Core 2 Duo processor PC with an ASROCK motherboard.

Greatly in need of your help. Thanks in advance.
