I never imagined that my thread would have so many posts and run for so many weeks! There’s a tiny chance there may be a problem with the data cable that could cause the led to not come on – you could try disconnecting the data cable to it, but I doubt the situation will change. If there are two drives on a data cable, if either one or both require an 80 wire data cable, you are supposed to use an 80 wire data cable.

It has several colors of leds under the blue plastic that flash randomly when the computer is running. Or you could remove the floppy drive, remove it’s top cover, and clean off the heads with a Q tip or a tissue, or similar. If you supply the model number for the drive I could look that up.

When u turn on the system do u hear fans spinning or beeps? Must I remove the jumper or just leave it where it is? Thank you for this information. You can have a dual boot situation even when the two operating systems have been installed on different hard drives. 614


Thankfully 98SE works well with mb of ram, and probably doesn’t benefit from more than mb. Programs you commonly need I would like to point out that there are very people who reply to our those of us who frequently answer posts in as much detail as you have – we appreciate that.

There’s probably info in ypur mboard manual about how to properly set jumper settings on hard and optical drives, how to connect the data cables and their connectors properly, and descrptions of bios Setup settings.

XP just barely works as it was intended to with mb of ram. The rules of this web site forbid us from telling you about anything that’s illegal, as far as the software maker is concerned. Yes I am a very beginner so thanks for the help.

Yes, you could try plugging in any power connector that’s the same shape and size. I found one to format and it took a LONG time to format – which suddenly made me appreciate my current GB MS computer with the convenience of a CD drive, thinking of the days before CD’s arrived here in South-Africa, and how long it took to format floppies, and the space it took to store so many of them, and thinking of one Windows OS on several floppy disks, and if all goes well as it did so far, thanks to your help, then soon I will have a fully functional 2GB computer my MS In that case, you must either run a Repair installation of Windows, or the poor second choice is, you install Windows from scratch.


Even a GB drive is a lot of storage space.
