I have windows 98 350MHZ MMX Intel Pentium 2.Is it difficult to uninstall Windows 98 and install Windows XP Pro ? Do I have to change or replace any other hardware? Does Microsoft or anyone have a booklet explaining how to do it, step by step? Or shall I get a professinal IT technician to do it? Any suggestions are most welcome.
Specifications are Intel 440BX AGPset, 256 SDRAM 100MHZ, 512KB internal Cache, Asus V7100 32MB graphic Card, Sound Blaster Live EF40, Direct X 9, Supra Max 56K modem, American Megatrends plc Amibios motherhead type R1.3
If your system is running OK there is no earthly reason to 'upgrade'. However it does seem a little slow for XP and your scanner. printer, modem etc., may not work. I have put XP on 350Mhz computers and they run slower then Rudetski.
Baslla321; I'm sure you do not need XP just so that you could run a WebCam with audio (voice). Create a new thread (start a new subject) with that as a heading and I'm sure there will be many here who can give advice (Unfortunately I'm not experienced in this area). I would also imagine that for good WebCam video you may also need broadband.
Confab.....Please Do u work face to face or just voice? My daughter gets my picture as she has broadband and XP, but I only have dial up/56K modem and Win98, I only managed to see her once for a few seconds. MSN Messenger keeps telling me to stop trying "face to face" and just go om Voice only.
