    at the current time there are no pci cards in computer, and is running on built in video, problem is with motherboard or cpu.! Question is Why would a computer run win98, but no longer run win xp ?

  • Stephen Hall Dec 31, 2008

    As to the computer over heating, if that were true the computer would stop, but it will run windows 98 with out a problem, and it was never overclocked.

What does it say when yu attempt to install it should boot from cd/dvd drive are you getting the menu that asks you what you want to do repair, install or quit, if you aren't getting to that point then it's a hardware issue, or the disk is flawed. you should clear the cmos as mentioned ans pop out the battery to make sure the old settings aren't fouling up your install, and you should enable booting from the dvd drive not the floppy or hard drive, but that's it really.

Please restore the BIOS to factory settings and run the recovery console from your xp cd when the text based part of the setup starts press R. Select the xp installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password if you have not set one by default it is blank. Then type chkdsk in the command prompt /(windows xp drive letter), do not type a drive letter if you want to check the current disk. Please let me know the results once you have done this.

Hi, laptop will not start


Seems like your Operation System crashed. Find your reinstall CDs and reload windows.

If you find someone who can pull the hard drive and hook it to another machine and run a check disk that might save you from reloading it and losing all your data.

I have a gateway lb3 500 ancient 98se i tried to load xp pro and it crashed i cant seem to even get a 98 startup disk to work to recover it . how can i recover it to load the xp pro onit


Try running linux on it. Linux will run much better on older hardware. Depending an the specs of the system, it may not be able to handle running windows. Try ubuntu (www.ubuntu.com). If it used to run Windows XP or 98 and it wont now, try checking the hard drive. It may be corrupt. You can find hard drive check tools all across the web, google for drive fitness test by hitachi, it works great. Burn to a disk and boot to it on the older machine and do a full advanced test on the drive.

TMOUSE (01) error - Win 98 bootup


Try booting using the step-by-step confirmation instead of safe mode. Skip loading the mouse driver that is causing the error. You won't have a mouse when you get booted up but you can use keyboard commands to navigate everything while you try to reload drivers.

Unable to load


How to get to a MS-DOS prompt.
Reason: If Windows or the computer is not operating properly, it may be necessary to get to a MS-DOS prompt to diagnose and to perform additional troubleshooting on the computer.
Solution: MS-DOS users
Windows 3.x users
Windows 95, 98 and ME users
Windows NT, 2000 and XP users
Windows Vista users
Other PC Operating System users

MS-DOS users If you are running MS-DOS with no other operating systems, the computer should be booting into a MS-DOS prompt automatically unless you have a shell or other program loading automatically. If the computer is not getting you to a MS-DOS prompt, reboot the computer and as the computer is booting, press the F5 key when you see the message "Starting MS-DOS" or the MS-DOS version. This will load the default standard MS-DOS. If you successfully get to a MS-DOS prompt and would like to prevent the computer from loading the program that is preventing you from getting to a MS-DOS prompt, or if you would like to fix possible error messages you may be receiving when booting the computer, edit the autoexec.bat and/or the config.sys files.

Windows 95, 98, and ME users If you are able to get into Windows 95, 98 or ME, you can get to a MS-DOS prompt by following the below steps.
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run
  3. Type "command" and press enter.
This will open a MS-DOS shell. However, if you are attempting to troubleshoot an issue with the computer and are using Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98we suggest you restart the computer into MS-DOS. To do this follow the below steps.
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Shutdown
  3. Choose the option to restart the computer into a MS-DOS prompt.
If you are unable to get into Windows 95 or Windows 98 to get into a MS-DOS prompt, follow the below instructions (Windows ME does not have this option).
  1. Reboot the computer
  2. As the computer is booting, press the F8 key when you hear a beep or when you see "Starting Windows 95" or "Starting Windows 98". Windows 98 users sometimes may find it easier to press and hold the left CTRL key as the computer is booting.
  3. If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.
Microsoft Windows 95 Startup Menu
============================= 1. Normal
2. Logged (\BOOTLOG.TXT)
3. Safe mode
4. Step-by-step confirmation
5. Command prompt only
6. Safe mode command prompt only
Enter a choice: 1
F5=Safe Mode Shift+F5=Command prompt Shift+F8= Step-by-step confirmation [N]

4. Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only.
Windows NT, 2000, XP, and Vista users If you're running Windows NT, 2000, or Windows XP and need to get to MS-DOS prompt follow the below steps.
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run or click in the "Start Search" field if you're running Vista
  3. Type "cmd" or "command" and press enter.
Additional information about the difference between "cmd" and "command" can be found on document CH000395. If you're attempting to get into a MS-DOS prompt to troubleshoot the computer boot the computer into safe mode. Additional information about how to get into safe mode can be found on document CHSAFE. Windows 2000, XP, and Vista users who are unable to boot the computer into Normal Windows mode or Safe mode can also enter the recovery console to manage their computer from a prompt. Additional information about how to do this can be found on document CH000627. Finally, if you are experiencing issues getting into Windows NT, 2000, or XP, it may be necessary to run troubleshooting steps from a MS-DOS prompt. It is recommended that the Network Administrator get into the MS-DOS prompt by using either a standard MS-DOS boot diskette (note: will not be able to access data using a standard MS-DOS bootable diskette) or the ERD diskettes created after the installation of Windows NT, or boot from the Windows XP CD.
