just given, for free, an old Pentium 90 Mhz system with Win95. there are no supporting software via CDs or backups, just a system with external modem(supra fax), printer, as well as a LogicTech wireless mouse via the serial port. what i would like to do is reformat the entire computer with software that i have support for( from Win95 to Win98 for starters). i realize that if i format the drives (C and D are used), i will lose the drivers that support the modem, the printer, the mouse, and so on. By the way, the CD drive that came with the system is inoperable so i cannot do backups and there are no USB ports attached (Quite Old!! but a good functioning machine). Can i some how locate the info that i need for the devices on the system, save them thru some type of media ( there is a 3.5 drive) and proceed from there. Or can i take an accounting of the devices and some how download the necessary drives from a site(???). Please advise on this matter at your earliest time...Thanks with a smile. I hope i did not leave any pertinent info out!!! If i did the query would be appreciated.
