  1. Installing (or reinstalling) IE6 should fix this, someone else had this issue before: http://www.techtalk.cc/viewtopic.php?p=18608#p18608
  2. Just because a system file exists, doesn't mean that it has all the exports (functions) that a newer program expects from it. System files retained same names, but had new things added on it. Look here: http://kernelex.sourceforge.net/wiki/VLC_Media_Player
  3. Yep, this card should work fine with these drivers: http://shell.stare.pro/~mrmateczko/Atheros_Wi-Fi_Win98SE_Latest.zip These are Atheros drivers I've found and packaged since they have been removed now from original place.
  4. Two most common issues regarding long boot up times in 98SE: 1. DHCP - you must assign the IP address of the device manually in Network control panel rather than using DHCP as that cause a long delay in boot. I think this was fixed in Windows ME, but I'm not 100% sure. 2. Leaving USB flash drives plugged in when the unofficial USB drivers are installed. As for the shutdown problem, you can try these things: 1. Installing the Windows 98 SE Shutdown Supplement. 2. Reinstalling Windows 98 SE with the /p i switch to avoid installing buggy ACPI which may cause problems with shutdow
  5. This is a Windows 2000/XP driver, not for 98SE, it will most likely not work. You're mistaking Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 (which is 802.11b only, useless for today's Wi-Fi networks) that HAS Windows 98 drivers with the WiFi card that you have which is the Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG (that is 802.11g, usable with today's modern 2,4GHz WPA2 Wi-Fi networks) that DOESN'T have Windows 98 drivers. Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG was a very popular Wi-Fi card back in the day included in many laptops. Many people tried using it with Windows 98, no one succeed. As I've said, ditch that Wi-Fi card a
  6. Different link: http://lonecrusader.x10host.com/fix95cpu.html I think it should be included in the first post?
  7. That's not a wifi icon, that's the View Channels button linked to the Channel Bar and channels in general, heavily promoted with IE4 that came with 98 First Edition, 95 OSR2.5 and as a free download for 95. It was removed in 98 Second Edition from the Quick Launch, as the focus on the channels and channel bar seems to largely disappear once IE5 came. 98 SE does not show Channel Bar at the desktop by default for example.
  8. Format the hard drive from the Win98 CD with the /S command so the hard drive becomes bootable with the DOS version from the Win98 CD. Make sure to check in FDISK if the partition is set to active. Then, copy the win98 folder from CD to the hard drive, and run the setup from the hard drive and not the CD. If there is still the same error, plug the hard drive to main PC (or in any other way) put HIMEMX.EXE on the root of it: https://sourceforge.net/projects/himemx/ and put DEVICE=C:\HIMEMX.EXE to CONFIG.SYS (create CONFIG.SYS if it doesn't exist). If HIMEMX.EXE doesn't solve the probl
  9. Try to install with the "/p i" switch as mentioned by SweetLow. It seems that you are using the unofficial repack of DOS 7.1. It has some bloatware. Why do you need DOS 7.1 in the first place? The OEM Full CD image is bootable and will install 98SE on a PC without any operating system. Delete all existing partitions, create and format a new clean one, just make sure the partition is less than 137GB.
  10. Best way is to check the setup executable/files and see if it makes any checks regarding system locale. Game/program boxes can lie!
  11. There are no Windows 9x drivers for Wireless 2200BG. End of story. For best results, replace your mini PCI wireless card in your laptop with something like NKRCM9 or a similar one that has the Atheros 5004/5213 chipset.
  12. I can also suggest HP System Diagnostics. This and other suggestions you can find here: https://msfn.org/board/topic/179593-alternative-device-manager-for-win98/
  13. Try installing Windows ME with the "/p i" switch. Note the space between p and i.
  14. What PC/virtual machine are you using? What are the specs?
