Time Computer - Restore

  spoonyloony 12:11 02 Oct 2003

Hello..........my friend has been having a problem with his Time PC model 362-50-52. He kept getting messages about activeX but when he tried to adjust settings was unsuccessful in as far as file/progs on his machine would not open.

I took pc from him...formatted HD and then installed WIN98 ( machine had WINME originaly)

Now have a major problem in that I have no way of knowing how/which drivers came with it for PCI etc and modem does not get recognised.

I have no real pc knowledge apart from trial and error !!!!!!

Does anyone know if its possible to get a restore disk or something?

Many many thanks

A restore CD probably came with the PC, some OEMs also have a 'hidden' partition on the hard drive which holds the required files for a restore, this may well still be there if you didn't fdisk the drive.

Thanks..........sorry I forgot to mention that he can't find the restore disk as they have moved house and lost it in the proccess...

Could try going to the Time support website where they have lists of drivers for older machines,might be helpful.

The Belarc Advisor does not find all the hardware on a PC, if it on a scsi interface or port it may miss the hardware.


You may need drivers for your motherboard so you may need to go to the their site for them.... (usualy VIA; AMD or SIS)... They have to be installed as soom as you have loaded Windows. Belarc Advisor can tell you what your make motherboard is.

The modem will probabley work with one of the MS generic drivers supplied with Win 98.
