I have run out of ideas!
3 years ago I bought a dell 733Mhz with Win98se, 10gig HD. 18 months ago I bought a 60gig HD from WD and installed it. 6 months ago the 60gig died, I was able to transfer the files I wanted to keep from it and I removed the 60gig. Before I determined that it was the HD that was the problem, I thought it was something else, so I used the Recovery CD several times. Finally I found the Win98 setup files on the original 10gig HD and did a re-install of WIN98se from it. After that point I do not have any of the MSoffice Apps (MSWord, Excel, etc) they are still there, but they say I need to re-install then. This is a DELL, with only a recovery disk and the warrenty is out so I can't get any help from DELL. Is there any hope short of buying and upgrading to XP or something. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks In advance. :-|
