really.. really old 100mhz laptop driver questions
    #3465435 - 12/08/04 05:37 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

my aunt wants me to fix it, so what I think Im gonna do is reinstall windows, I have never used a laptop for any extended period of time so I have no real idea of how they work, Im really just wondering about the drivers

if I totaly reinstall windows do I have to have a seperate driver for the video card or sound card or anything else? :confused:

what about formating? does it work the same way on a regular computer?

this question may sound silly, but can an old laptop use more than 1 kind of OS?

as you can tell I have no idea how laptops work, for that matter really old 100mhz ones

thx in advance

Make sure you install nothing newer than Win95 on that system. I wouldnt put 2 OS's on there.

Before you do any of this, search up the model number online, and make sure you know the components in and out. Find the video/sound drivers beforehand and put them on a floppy just incase. I've never done it, but i dont see why formating should be any different from a regular PC.

Honestly tho, you could get a really cheap used laptop that would be 5x better than that.

Good luck dude.

I have found that windows 98 runs better than windows 95 on slower systems.
