Okay i am trying to help a friend fix her computer.. I reformated it and that turn out ok.. I have reinstalled win98se but when i restarted it I got alot of cant find cirrus.vxd, ksclockf.ax, ksdata.ax, ksinterf.ax, ksproxy.ax, ksvpintf.ax, ksuser.dll, ess.sys, msanalog.vxd, mspclock.sys, mskssrv.sys, gm16.dls, wdmaud.drv, portcls.sys, redbook.sys, sbemul.sys, stream.sys, sysaudio.sys, swmidi.sys, kmixer.sys, dmusic.sys, choosusr.dll, msab32.dll, msnet32.dll, mspp32.dll, pmspl.dll, rpctcl.dll


most of the files are from c:/windows/system/precopy. Don't know why that won't install right..

anyways.. once we get through all the crap i get onto windows and i can use it for basics. It wont let me change display settings ( more than likely cause its not putting that in right ) it stays at the 16 colors but that is it.. no other options.. I have gone to device manager and clicked on the cirrus logic thing that has the exclamation mark and it says i am using the best driver for it.. but its not working .. same for the rest of the things that show up..

any ideas on what I can do?

Sounds like the format did not get rid of everything. I would suggest to fdisk the drive, delete all partitions, recreate the primary dos partition and make it active then format. Once this is done, re-install. The OS should not be searching for these files if the format worked. Go here for a walkthrough on fdisk,
