View Full Version : Win 98 SE Updates



12-09-1999, 09:40 PM
I have a Compaq Presario 5290 which came with a quick restore cd which has the early version of Win98 (4/10/1998). I decided to get the Second Edition updates cd and install it. After about 5 mins and while I was making minor adjustments in control panel,the computer froze. No error message. The only way out was to power down and re-boot. I formatted the drive and re-installed to start afresh with a clean system. It froze about 3 more times before I uninstalled the update, after which the system behaved itself with no further problems. Is this a Compaq problem or could it be that Microsoft has given me an untested and buggy update disk? I've already contacted Microsoft here in Auckland about a week ago enquiring about the problem and I'm still waiting for them to get back to me.Your comments and/or help would be greatfully appreciated.
