How do I determine if my system is 98 or 98SE? Some features that might give a clue: Compaq Presario 5140, Ethernet card, USB ports (I think are 1.1). Thanks

lol, that's funny, I was just given a Presario 5140 yesterday...

The USB ports are indeed regular USB, and not USB2...

What you do, is close/minimise all your programs, right click on "My Computer", and select properties.

When the box comes up, it'll show either (this is the one currently showing on mine)...

Code: [ Select ]
System:
 Microsoft Windows 98
 4.10.1998
  1. System:
  2.  Microsoft Windows 98
  3.  4.10.1998

or...

Code: [ Select ]
System:
 Microsoft Windows 98
 Second Edition
 4.10.2222 A
  1. System:
  2.  Microsoft Windows 98
  3.  Second Edition
  4.  4.10.2222 A


As far as I know the Presario was distributed with Win98 first edition as standard. I don't know if the system was still available new once '98SE started hitting the shelves.
