Resart in safe mode by tapping the f8 key as the computer starts , before it says "starting windows"
once in safe mode navigate to the controll panel, select DISPLAY, click the settings tab at the top, In the screen resolution box , set it to a lower setting , restart, if it works , save the setting and your done . If it doesnt, go back to display settings and change it to a lower setting and restart. you could also back the color quality to 16bit in the same place and this might help in some cases.

Hmm. Any computer running Windows 98 was manufactured between 1998 and 2000, i.e., well over TEN years ago.

So, you probably have a "hardware" problem, either:
* bad RAM
* dying CPU
* dying motherboard
* dying disk-drive

Download the free 'MEMTEST86+' software, and burn it onto a CD-R.
Start the computer, and tell it to boot from the CD-R disk.
This will run an exhaustive test of your RAM (and, as a byproduct, your CPU). Any "failures" usually point to bad RAM,
and any "freeze" or "lockup" usually point to a dying motherboard.

Sounds like you have power saver turned on. Go into "display properties" under "control panel". Go to "screen saver" Check your "Power" settings. Un-check "Hibernate" or look and see power settings are and adjust accordingly. If they are all turned off, check your BIOS settings on your PC. It mights have a power saving feature in there.

My tower has power but won't come on


first guess is the motherboard is bad

a few things you can try:

unhook the monitor from the computer and test it on another computer. If the monitor works then its most likely the motherboard.

leave the computer unplugged for a few hours then plug it back up and give it another try just in case it overheated.

have the computers power supply tested as a bad power supply can cause all sorts of issues.

other than that you are down to a new motherboard and or a new computer.
