  1. Let me just dig out this thread. I couldn't find anything regarding this issue so I'm posting it here for future reference in case someone will be so desperate as I was. I had to reinstall the OS numerous times to find the culprit. At least we have flash drives these days and I did not have to burn a cd for each attampt. I was installing my Lenovo Thinkpad W701 and could not get the integrated Wacom tablet to work. It installed alright in device manager but the pen did not work at all and launching the tablet control panel just produced following errors : "The tablet driver was not found." and "There is a problem with your tablet driver ..." So in case someone stumbles across this thread the solution is : Do not remove "Operating System Options / Logon Notifications". I reinstalled OS with Login Notifications included and voila, tablet works as advertised. A few tags for poor souls searching for solution : IBM W700 W700ds W701ds
  2. Pale Moon 25+26 on XP behave the same way. FF52 on XP (same system as above) : I don't have all the Unicode fonts installed so this might have something to do with it.
  3. Guys, I don't like to be the one to disrupt your conversation, but please create a separate topic for it or use PMs. This topic is about compatibility layer for Windows XP. Thank you.
  4. Microsoft wants us to forget, but we never will.
  5. Well, yes I have the app on my HDD incl. S/N, but shhh. Should be easy to get it somewhere if you know your stuff.
  6. I remember using KMCS Registry Compressor. (and it worked) Homepage doesn't exist anymore. Webarchive snapshot can be found here.
  7. Back then, I used this driver with nV 7900 GS: Tweaked Unofficial NVIDIA Display Driver 82.69 for Windows 98/98 SP1/98 SE/ME Version 1.03 Modded by Maximus-Decim 12-22-2008 Still have it on my harddrive. It is available here from MDGx's site. Although now when I look into the readme, it says 8xxx and 9xxx series are supported. I'm not sure if there was a problem with those or they were just too pricey for me at that time.
  8. GeForces 8xxx aren't supported. I used to use GF 7900GS 256MB without any problems. Gaming at 1024x768 was fine. There aren't many GFs 8xxx around beacuse of RoHS anyway.
  9. I'd rather use both than any of both. I still have command.com on the C: drive and a working Win98 system somewhere else, so that i cany copy it back in the case something goes wrong...
  10. I celebrated this anniversary with migration to my nLited Windows XP. No more crashes because of resources depletion.
  11. Tried that, when I opened the older Msconfig, the option was already checked and it didnt help ... as I expected. Never mind, I got used to restart the PC instead of shutting it down. Theres no doubt, those drivers are buggy.
  12. Shouldnt it be here ?
  13. I have the same problem except mine doesnt hang while restarting, so I shut it down by pressing the power button after the keyboard blinks. (7900GS 256MB)
  14. How much RAM do you have ?
  15. @ Tihiy : The applications I mostly use are : Firefox, Azureus, ICQ 5.0 and WinAmp 2.91. Sometimes the resources get totally depleted so that closing all apps helps only for a while and restart is unavoidable. In my case, Azureus and Firefox suck all the resources, that is for sure. So a patch would be worth it for me ! The resources are the only thing that bugs me about Windows 98 and make me play with the thought migrating to XP ... but Im not a kamikaze.
