Removing Unneeded Device Drivers
Sometimes problems can occur if the driver for
a previously removed device has not been uninstalled. You can remove the device
driver from Windows 98's Device Manager list by following these steps:
- Click Start | Settings | Control Panel,
and double-click the System icon.
- Click the Device Manager tab and double-click
the icon for the hardware type of the device that was removed to display the
installed devices. An exclamation point superimposed on a device icon indicates
a removed or inoperable device.
- Click the list item to select the device you
want to remove, and then click Remove.
- Confirm that you want to remove the device
by clicking OK in the Control Device Removal message box.
If you have more than one hardware configuration,
a modified version of the Confirm Device Removal message box appears. Make sure
the Remove from All Configurations option button is selected; then click OK
to remove the device and close the message box.
