I recently needed to install Windows 98 on a friends PC that had previously been running XP and you guys kindly helped explaining where I could download a startup disc.
I have reloaded 98 now but had a problem with drivers. When I started up Windows Plug and Play found the following hardware:
PCI Universal Serial Bus PCI System Management Bus PCI Multimedia Audio Device PCI Card PCI Ethernet Controller
but was unable to locate drivers and of course I don’t have any discs.
The problem I have is that I cannot change the screen settings and only have 16 colours and I can only have the screen at something like 800x640. I have some software to load for my friend that needs 256 colours so will not run.
Please can someone tell me what I need to do [and idiot terms would be appreciated!].
Hello again, sorry to be a pest! I downloaded the SIW software but not really sure exactly what to look for! When I look at one the things that I have a problem with [yellow explanation mark in Device Manager] the info I get is:
Cababilities: 14 00 00 00 Configuration Flags 40 00 00 00 Class Unknown Hardward IDs PCE\VEN_8086DEV_24CDSUBSYS_90161509REV_01 Compatibile IDs PCI\VEN_8086DEV_24CDREV_01 Description PCI Universal Serial Bus
Is any of this meaningful to anyone? I presume I need to download a driver to make it work but I don't know how to tell which driver I need. Sorry to be so dense KJ
