This is 3rd new system I bought way back. It came with a temp restore DVD that put everything back without questions or driver installs you could see on 1st start up, but it had a limit for how long it could be used, for I was to be sent the normal Restore CDs. but never got them. When the time ran out on the dvd I started the hardware up grades. I replaced the bios with a bios from HP that was for same mother board but allowed 512mb ram, only 256mb with etower, and the CPU upgrade to a 1.4GHZ.

Now to the present. Found the Restore CDs on ebay but with HP bios, no install? At start of restore on bottom of screen it said a shift F8 would single step you thru the restore and with a yes or no you could do a step or not. I passed over the test to see if this system was a 633id and then with a Ctrl C droped out of the restore to dos on a Ram floppy A: Now from DOS started GHOST.exe which put the system back as I had bought it.

Part 2. I have much 98, me, software I could now install after the upgrades and fixes were installed. With Photoshop Elements and Album 2.0 from GOODWILL store for $2.99, problems. They could not set up the .psa files, storage for pictures, saying it could not find the Microsoft Access Driver for the .mdb file??? I am a very poor software person and had to dig on the net to find out what was wrong. I found that .psa and .mdb were the same and MS OFFICE had this MS access driver? WHAT? Also on line it talked about a JET40sp8_wme that could fix cant find driver? WHAT? I made a GHOST backup of what I had so far and then installed JET40sp8_wme

It worked, Photoshop Elements and Album 2.0 now ran fine? ANY HELP ON WHAT JUST HAPPENED? With ccleaner there is now a small mess in the REGISTRY that was not present before the JET40sp8_wme was installed?
