Are you sure your PC is booting from Cd?

    To start this Windows install. First check that the first boot
    device in your system BIOS is set to the CD-ROM Drive.

    (The system bios can
    usually be entered on boot, usually by pressing the F1, F2, F8, F10 or DEL key.
    Make sure you save the settings before exiting))




    If you are unsure or don't want to enter the BIOS then just test
    the computer by putting the CD-ROM in the drive and rebooting the computer. This is the recommended way to
    install windows.

    You will know that your computer will/has booted of CD-ROM when
    the following screen appears.

After I re-installed windows 98 my EZCD creator 5.1 says that there are no supported CD recorders available. I somehow got it working once but then had to do a system restore and lost it again. So I know...


Try reinstalling the device drivers in Device manager. Right click my computer and select properties then hit the hardware tab then the device manager button. You should find your drivers under the cd/dvd-rom heading. If you don't have the cd any more try to go to the manufacturers web site.

Cd rom will not read. have just put windows 98 on instead of xp, hard disc was formated, have win 98 now, but cd wont work or if i plug in usb memory stick


With Windows 98 you MUST install a suitable driver in addition to Windows 98 to talk to CD Roms. I believe there is also a general service routine that must be loaded.

XP has all this functionality built in.

After much thrashing, here is the solution to the problem. Somehow the printer drivers lost coordination with the corresponding Windows supporting programs. You would think that reinstalling the printer drivers would fix the problem, AND IT DOES, but there are 3 tricks:

· Uninstall everything associated with this printer with the install disk in the computer (this may really not be necessary, but it worked for me). [This is also the solution when the a window comes up asking for TrayApp to be inserted using a disk—they mean the hp install disk].

· After the un-install, MAKE SURE you ALSO delete the printer using the control panel. This is critical. If this doesn’t happen, the corresponding Windows software is somehow hooked to the wrong thing when the reinstall happens. Then reboot the system.

· Install the new drivers with the printer off, and the USB disconnected from the printer. Reboot the system [not sure the reboot is necessary]. After the computer has booted, connect the USB, and power up the printer. The computer will recognize the printer and put the printer icon in the Control Panel.

It turns out that correcting the driver mis-coordination by BOTH uninstalling the printer drivers and taking the printer out of the control panel, then properly reinstalling solves BOTH the fax problem, and the protection fault problem! Amazing such a little thing can make such a difference!

It could be a memory related problem. Try to test your memory module by installing it to a different system that is surely working. If that system restarts, then you must replace the memory module.

May be your windows 98 is damaged and need to be re-installed. Even if you reinstall windows 98, there are more chances of your getting your documents back. I meant to say that just reinstall and to not format. you may get your windows running again. You should have your windows 98 installed with DirectX 9.0C and internet explorer 6.
