I have an older computer (Dell, PII, 400 Mz) in which I installed a new hard drive, and a new OS -- Win98 SE (generic, not a 'Dell part').
I have a Turtle Beach/Montego 64 voice PCI audio card. I have two different setup discs for it (both "Dell parts"). One disc simply says it has drivers on it, the other says "Windows 98 Only." Exploring/comparing both, they seem very similar (types and number of files). When I open up the "Setup" file on either, and after acknowledging/warning me that I should close all other programs as the computer will be restarted, it goes directly to restart, and NO installation whatsoever occurs. It's as if I pressed the restart button on my computer. Again, this occurs on both discs. (I'm stuck.)
Maybe this is a proprietary (?-sp.) issue with Dell (not using their Win98 disc...? But I'm thinking that maybe I could just skip initiating the Setup (setup.exe) file by opening the next file in line, the one that the setup file opens. What do you think? What file might this be?
Before I switched out my old hard drive, I downloaded a driver program and saved all my drivers on a CD. I can update the driver via device manager and access my saved drivers, but I can only update/install a single driver, while my saved drivers for this device number five (5). So that's why I think I need to somehow get one of these installation discs (the Win 98 only disc...?) to work. Any thoughts?
(I hear Microsoft is coming out with a new OS next November or so. I'll get a new computer then, one that I can be sure can comfortably handle the new and greater requirements of that new OS....) (Where's BTX?)
Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.
