I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.Subsequent attempts to re-boot end in Windows protection errors, sometimes unidentifed but other times identifed as involving IOS, NTKERN and others.Because of NTKERN, I ran a memory check which was OK.VXD from a driver download site I believe or possibly a copy from a Win XP system I also have.
I did fdisk but on come Compaq's the setup software is in a non-DOS partition on the drive - it's like having your BIOS on the drive. Are there any extra pieces of hardware involved here, like a network card, sound card, modem?Bob Yippy, yippy, after several days (I am both slow AND stupid, but I am persistent! Basically the only thing that worked, and it DID work, was to replace the NDIS. I have the same issue with my wireless adapter card on my Win98fe machine and would like to avoid a costly upgrade if possible.:confused: My system sees the card just fine, however the drivers are not there..NDIS. Thanks for the help : D Aaron, I got the Win XP NDIS.I have a PC card that works successfully to another laptop with my Router setup . Unfortunately, D-Link tech support says I need Win98 SE for it to work (in contrast to what the store person said where I bought the Router Card). 4) If any D-Link experts, can you verify that won't work with Win98 that I have? Bob The first computer I had 98se on was a p166 32 megs of ram use it for about 4 yrs. As for upgrading to 98SE all you need is a 98SE disk and from the boot disk run setup making sure to install it in the c:\windows folder,so that it over writes the win98 ,[not the c:\windows000 folder that it might choose] and install it over the 98 version .I have done this on numerisous ocations with 95 and 98 . VXD device loader(s) for this device could not load the device driver(Code2).
