My home PC is quite old and uses Win 95. The engineer who installed my braodband said it would be ok.And it was, but with not much free memory etc I decided to format the c drive to get rid of lots of rubbish. Did that ok, but was not able to access the internet via my broadband connection.When I used the 'help' cd that he left me, it says I need Win 98 at least, so it's no good.I will ring the helpline later, but thought someone might have some answers or advice first.Can I run broadband with Win 95?Are there some things I need to re-set after the format?Cheers!
what sort of modem are you using. i didn't think win 95 supported USB
To be honest I do not know! They just put it in I am not at all technical. I can only say it is a Motorolla. The company is Telewest. Does that help?
click hereBut you would still be better off upgrading to at least Windows98SE.
Presumably the engineer was working on a commission basis.....
Thanks for that Stuartli. I mean it has worked well for 6 months so I presume my version can handle it? Yes/no?If it's yes, then why can't I connect after formatting?
i meant is the modem connected via a USB port, a PCI slot or an ethernet ?
Ethernet I think.
Did you mean format? Does your computer run at all? If it does, then what did you do as you can't have formatted your hard drive.
A good point. Did you format the disk (e.g. wipe it completely and reload all software) or did you simply manually remove certain files ?
Gemma,Yes, I formatted it and reloaded Win 95. That went ok, but no internet connection.
