Boot off of the XP CD and choose to repair the current installation. Then scan the disk for errors from the prompt. Should shed some light on the situation.

Sounds like you're going to end up pulling what data from the drive you can locate and access and reinstalling Windows, unless the drive is failing, in which case, just get the data (if you can) and replace the drive.

1) Make sure it has a Wireless Card

2) Make sure You connect to a wireless access point before you get online.

You can try using firefox, if the PC is saying your getting a connection, if it works, try turning off proxy in your internet settings.

MY LAPTOP WONT START


If you go into the BIOS, is the hard drive detected?

Did you just install this drive from another laptop?

It doesn't make sense that it would try to boot to win98, since the original OS was XP Media Center to begin with.

Let me know, and I can help you further.
