I have a problem with my old windows 98 laptop/netbook When ever i launch itit says "Error loading keyboard.drv/KEYBOARD.DRV . You must reinstall windows. I tried but the cd drive nor the floppy drive works. The floppy drive lights up on start but then after a few seconds it shuts off and floppy disks dont go in it any ideas? I also tryed scandisk but the just halts halfway and does it every time going to the boot menu and selecting logging dosent work and sometimes the harddrive justs stops spinningand makes no noise AT ALL
its version is Windows 98 Version 4.10.1998 :sad:

Hate to say it, but it looks like the end of the line. Too many apparently unrelated problems.

Hi Jdar2,

You don't have to run on the battery. Does it run on the AC Adaptor? If so then run on the adaptor. When in DOS type "Help" enter for DOS help.

Good Luck, Jim
