HI
Have problem that can only be resolved by Reformatting and Reinstalling Win 98se. Need some help to complete task. Where do I start? How do I begin? Partitioning according to Manual is 'A single Partition" Hope to have the job completed by 11 am EST today 3/11/04. Am I dreaming or can it be done?
Thanks
**** Abbott

Bob, here I am again. It is my father-in-laws unit. Whish he would stop messing around with it. As the joys of being son-in-law to a 77 year old who loves his computer......

http://www.kids-online.net/learn/fdisk.html is the basics. After that, you install motherboard drivers (from Dell), USB helpers (http://www.usbman.com), video/audio/modem drivers (Dell) and printer drivers.

An antivirus and what else?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
