I am having trouble with slow response with Windows 98 first edition. I did a clean install with the compaq restore disk. The problems that i am experiencing is slow keyboard response; slow mouse click response; and resolution with monitor colors. Please help! I have so much time involved i just want to complete the job. :confused:

Did you place the Restore CD in the drive and then shut down the computer down cold for 60 seconds before proceeding to power on the computer?

Also to successfully use this Restore/Recover CD feature you must have only the original or factory authorized hardware plugged onto the mainboard. No third-party add-in hardware can be plugged into the mainboard at all (like CDR-W or Video/Audio cards for example) and, only the original keyboard, mouse and speakers can be plugged onto the back of the computer under most circumstances. The original keyboard, mouse and speakers may sometimes be substituted but never the CD-ROM or other add-in PCI/ISA cards. A different hard drive or more RAM will not affect the Restore process and are excluded from the above restrictions.

All but a USB card are original equipment. The only problem i am having is the slow response in keyboard strokes and response times with mouse clicks. All other seems to be operating well.
