Exclamation Compaq Problem

Hey Y'all

Recently my dad got this used Compaq (I know, I know), with everything, like a Samsung Flat Screen CRT, etc.


Intel Celeron 667 MHz FC-PGA Socket 370 FSB 66 MHz
256 of SDRAM133
Integrated 11 MB of Video
A real slow, crappy, loud Burner
A real messed up CD-ROM
Two HD's One is a 15 GB, stock, one is 40GB. 40GB is almost dead, WD. Sometimes it starts clicking, a good whack clears that up.
Plastic Heatsink and fan. PLASTIC HEATSINK!! COMPAQ ARE MESSED UP!!
Intel Chipsets



THe problem is that, IT WONT LET ME INSTALL ANY PROGRAMS OR DRIVERS!!!!!! IM SO TICKED OFF!!!!!!! I DID A CLEAN INSTALL!!!!! Still.. it says, you need your ****ing privileges. ???? Okay........

What are you trying to install?

Check Windows Update for any additional updates that might have been released for Windows 98. You might also want to check with the manufactures of the programs that you are trying to install.

i've never heard of win 98 asking for priviledges before. try safe mode and installing there.
