It sounds like maybe some malware got into your computer and messed up Win 98 really bad. If you have the OEM disc try and re-install the OS. But you will probably find that Win 98 will not have all the drivers for your computer. It always came up short in that department. And you will find very little on line support for Win 98. It's been obsolete for years. It sounds like this would be a good time to migrate to a more modern OS. Go online and Google Linux. You can get a number of Linux based operating systems for FREE! Ubuntu is supposed to be a good one. It may take a little time to learn to use it but I feel for the price it is worth the effort. Over the years it has become more user friendly. It has it's own applications and should have all the drivers for your hardware. It also is not vulnerable to all of the Windows malware that is out there. So for someone on a tight budget it seems like a good option. While this is not a solution to your immediate problem it is something to consider.

Code 19 Error


How to Fix Windows Error Code 19

f your computer's CD or DVD drive appears to be missing or corrupted and you've received a "Code 19" error message that says "Your registry might be corrupted," you can fix it by following some steps to modify the Windows registry. Note that while this process isn't particularly complicated, it does require that you are familiar with computers and know how to modify the Windows registry. If you aren't comfortable doing this, you should seek the help of a qualified computer professional to assist.



Instructions


1. Click the "Start" button, click the "Run" option and then type "regedit" and click the "OK" button.

2 Use the navigation pane on the left side of the window to navigate to the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10

3 Select the "UpperFilters" key in the right side of the window, then click the "Edit" button and then click the "Delete" option. Click "Yes" to confirm the deletion.

4 Click the "LowerFilters" key, then select the "Edit" button and choose the "Delete" option again. Click confirm the deletion.

5 Close the Registry Editor window and restart the computer to finish applying the settings that should fix the Code 19 error.

How To Fix Registry Code 19 Errors


The Code 19 registry error is caused by a system hardware failure. The failure occurs because the computer is trying to use two drivers for the same device on the computer. When you try to boot your computer, you will get a Code 19 error message that will lock you out of the computer. You can resolve this error by using the Safe Mode option


Instructions

1. Start your computer and then press the "F8" key while it is starting up. This will take you to the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. Scroll down to the "Safe Mode" option with the arrow keys on your keyboard.

2 Press the "Enter" key and wait for the computer to boot into Safe Mode. This should take about 45 seconds to complete. Click the "Start" button when the computer has booted and then click the "Run" box.

3 Type "Regedit" into the run box and press the "Enter" button. This will start your registry checker tool. Wait for the registry checker tool to complete the scan. This should take about one to five minutes to complete. When the scan has completed, you will be prompted to restart your system.

4 Click the "Restart" button when prompted to restart your computer. The computer will restart as normal and the Code 19 error will be fixed.




The Windows registry is a large database that contains the settings and configurations for hardware, programs and applications running on your computer.

I can't start my computer. Message "start your computer in safe mode"appears on the screen and than screen goes black and after few seconds the previous message appears on the screen.It's like a vicious...


Assuming Win-XP? ... When the computer is booting up (before windoes graphics) keep on tapping the F8 key to boot into safe mode. You should then be able to identify what is stopping Windows from booting properly.

- Have you just installed any software / drivers?
- Check the error logs and device manager to see if anything is wrong

Good Luck
