Re: Rebooting of windows98 by itself

Thanks for the suggestion but I am sure that my problem is purely from software. cause it happens when I usually type something whether a program or simply a letter or may be browsing net. This is not a hardware problem cause if I run scandisk or quickheal virus scan at background it doesn't happen. I have quickheal antivirus latest edition and it found no virus. I checked for any faulty driver in device manager too but all seems to be fine.
very confuused. any other suggestion ?

Types of sdram

PC66 SDRAM is the original module speed of SDRAM. PC66 SDRAM was the earliest version of SDRAM and therefore came in a number of smaller megabyte sizes than later versions. Most early motherboards were rated for PC66 SDRAM. The available sizes are 32MB (megabytes), 64MB and 128MB.

PC100 SDRAM was released after PC66 SDRAM and runs at a higher speed. It has the same number of pins as the earlier memory module and is capable of utilizing the same RAM slot. The only difference when installing this SDRAM in compatible computers with older systems (PC66 slots) is that the SDRAM will run at a slower speed. PC100 RAM comes in sizes such as 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB and 512MB.

The last generation of SDRAM is PC133. The PC133 memory provided a speed upgrade and comes in larger sizes than previous generations of SDRAM. PC133 modules are backward compatible with older SDRAM slots. The PC133 memory, however, will be forced to run at the slot's slower bus speed (PC66 or PC100). The memory comes in sizes like 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1024MB.

My computer is very slow booting


Slow Booting is mainly due to startup items. I would recommend you to disable unnecessary startup items which will surely improves your computer booting speed.

You can do that by following below mentioned steps

Step1: Click on start and then click on Run.
Step 2: Type MS Config and hit ENTER.
Step 3: Click on Startup tab.
Step 4: Click on Disable all then click on apply and then Click on OK.
Step 5: Your system will be prompted for a reboot. Go ahead and restart it.
Step 6: As soon as the system is backup you would get syste configuration utility screen where in you should Check "Don't show this message again".
Step 7: You are all set. Try rebooting again and the booting speed will be lot better.

Note: If you want you keep one or two start up items enable which can be done manually. However disabling start up items will not hamper your system in any way its just that those will not load during boot up. It will still work with out any problem.

If the complete system in slow then disabling start up items does not solve the problem.

Good Luck

Sound card driver has not found

Firstly just try and reboot your system, sometimes the soundcard become corrupted with shared files. If this fails then go to microsoft support and search for the driver of the soundcard nominated in your device manager. I had this problem for a while and had to keep rebooting the system, then it suddenly fixed itself, probably created by a windows update.

Windows 98 install

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.

Booting problem

RIGHT Click...
My Computer
From the menu choose Properties
Click the Advanced tab
Click Startup and Recovery
Under the system failure area take the check OUT of the box that says Automatically Restart.

Windows XP sucks on 128MB, get yourself more memory, go to 1 Gig.
Your problem could also be hardware such as a power supply so re-comment if the suggestion did not work for you.
