Hello reader,

I've got a windows 98 SE problem:

I installed windows 98 on a Thinkpad T-21 which has a Pentium III around 600 Mhz if not more, a few days later I moved the hdd to an other laptop, a Compaq Armada E500 and windows started to install and (I think) change cpu drivers, it suddenly talked about 'installing Pentium II stuff bla.'

A few hours later I moved it back to the T-21 and those E500 drivers are still there ! Z-cpu now only gives 200mhz ! and it is really slowing down the laptop, I only expirienced this recently for some reason, (I did the driver swapping a few days ago.)

Could I have any help with this ? is there a way to change the drivers, or do I have to make a dirty or clean install ?

I can give you a list of system drivers if you want.

yes, thanks for the help, but the problem solved itself for whatever reason when I turned it on after 2 days without power and the battery removed.
