Windows98SE CPU problem.

Recommended Posts

Hello reader,

I've got a windows 98 SE problem:

I installed windows 98 on a Thinkpad T-21 which has a Pentium III around 600 Mhz if not more, a few days later I moved the hdd to an other laptop, a Compaq Armada E500 and windows started to install and (I think) change cpu drivers, it suddenly talked about 'installing Pentium II stuff bla.'

A few hours later I moved it back to the T-21 and those E500 drivers are still there ! Z-cpu now only gives 200mhz ! and it is really slowing down the laptop, I only expirienced this recently for some reason, (I did the driver swapping a few days ago.)

Could I have any help with this ? is there a way to change the drivers, or do I have to make a dirty or clean install ?

I can give you a list of system drivers if you want.

Thanks.

What detects the bios?

Have you attempt to solve the issue rebuilding the current hardware profile?

Maybe you can solve in this way (i don't guarantee anything, it's only what I would try)

You need:

Windows 98 CD

Motherboard driver

Any other drivers (modem, pci devices...)

Then, right-click on my computer -> properties -> device manager

- open any items and delete all, one by one

- reboot your pc

- insert the cd driver when required.

Hello,

 

yes, thanks for the help, but the problem solved itself for whatever reason when I turned it on after 2 days without power and the battery removed.
