Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
Need some help i am installing windows 98 on asus p4 motherboard with a 1.4 ghz celereon cpu 1 gig mem and a 160 gig WD hdd. Windows 98 installs and everything trough the frist part. when the computer reboots it brings up the windows98 bootscreen and then the p.c reboots again and keeps on rebooting. Please help.
This sounds like you tried to reinstall Windows 98 over the top of an old installation rather than a fresh reformatting of the hard-drive and THEN a reinstallation. You will need to boot from the Windows 98 CD-ROM, FORMAT your hard drive and THEN install Windows 98 as most looping reboot issues have to do with 98 RE-installs over the top of an old installation.

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.

Tips for a great answer:
test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a
secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide
this will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure dust free connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions
or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure the CPU has a secure dust free seating with thermal paste
make sure your ram modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets also the Cmos battery has charge with no dust in the socket
on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
hope this helps
