ok i have a problem,
and heres how it goes...

i have windows 98, and the system is a bit older...about 3 yrs....
ok..i just recently deleted (formated) my c drive and reinstalled windows....
now....the guy that had this computer before me ad everything installed when he bought it im guessing.......
only thing i have is a windows cd...
and an ibm monitor diskette

now i re formatted mai c drive..re started the computer up and im having a new start.....except for a few problems.....

i cant install mai modem....mai audio/sound , the newer visual drive (because what windows setup only allows the screen to look like its in safe mode) and one more........

when i try to install.....they say that they cannot find a drive on my computer to install it......
even with the monotior i put the disk in and the computer said it could not find the driver on the computer?.....

so im wondering what do i do?
how di i add another/more drivers......etc....etc.....

help is relaly wanted.....
thank u

god bless

When windows boots the next time, for the monitor make sure you click "browse" and point it directly to the directory with the driver file in it (check on another computer if you are unsure). If the windows CD doesn't have the drivers for your sound card etc. you will need to google and download them.

I am sure there is a way, but I do not know it. If i was in your position I'd have the case open and a piece of papers that I can list all the add-on cards on.

You can perform a search of the FCC number on the cards, at Driver Guide and possibly find drivers also.
