    Hi

    I have an older pc win 98 OS (64 ram. AMID, 8GB) it has a whole bunch of errors on it. I would like to wipe the hard drive and reinstall win 98.

    I have no idea how to do this and would like to know where I can find some written instructions that I could follow.

    The manual that came with it tells me nothing about doing this.

    Thanks for any help you can give me

    First off, what kind of disk do you have with Windows 98 on it? Full installation, restore cd (computers like Compaq, Dell, etc.)?

    Do you have the sound card drivers, video drivers, motherboard drivers, etc. on a cd anywhere? If not, it would be wise to locate those first.
