    Answer please
    In the BIOS you see the HDD?
    If yes - you must make a new 3.5" Win98 boot diskette

    At a computer with win98 installed>

    Start->Control Panel-> Add/Remove programs-> on the third tab (make a 3.5" boot disk)

  • Nicu Jenunchi

    immediately after power button press or [del] or F1 or F2 or F4 or F8 or F10. One of those must open to you the BIOS. There don't change anythink!!!!!!! Just look up for HDD Drive. If it is seen - try the boot diskette

It takes too much time to boot,to open all programs & files

Perform the PC optimization, disk cleanup, delete all the unnecessary files and programs including TEMP, %temp% and Prefetch, also increase your virtual memory to take the effect.

You can also change your startup settings by going with the command in run window, 'msconfig' exclude semicolon. disabled all those programs which you think is not necessary for you during the startup. Run a full scan with the Malwarebytes Antimalware, and delete all the malicious objects found during the scan.

Restart your system to affect changes to take place.

My computer won't turn on properly. It keeps saying disk error press control alt delete. When I do it just says it again and again. It won't load and turn on.

First you should check if there is any disk on your cd room, if there is any disk you should remove the disk from the cd room, if there is no disk the possibility is your hard drive getting error
Press f2 or delete to enter your bios set up system
Look for boot menu
Set the first boot as a HDD and the second boot as cd room and disable the third boot
Save and Exit the setting
if your computer still won't load you need to reinstall your windows
insert windows cd and go to set up again by pressing f2 or delete button
Set the first boot as cd room then the second boot as HDD
Save and exit the setting again
When the message press any key to boot from cd appears you should press the space bar or another key
Then just follow the instruction of formatting

My dynabook T2 series says invalid system disk.what do i do please help me need notebook for school!

You will need to go into the BIOS. Press the delete key as your laptop boots up. Once in the BIOS you will need to locate the disk bootup priority. You will need to set the 1st disk priority to the hard drive that has your operating system on it. It would also be a good idea to make sure that no USB flash drives are plugged into the laptop when you set this. After you have set the primary device save and exit the BIOS. Your PC should now reboot and hopefully boot into your hard drive.

At boot-up I get "invalid

1) Go into your bios by pressing the Delete key.
2) Navigate to boot disk priority.
3) Set this to Primary master disk drive (The drive that your operating system is installed on.
4) The save and exit.

This should stop the message from coming up and solve your problem.

Windows freezes after startup

Its better to backup your data - booting from Ultimate Boot CD and backup to an external hard drive.
Try to do regular format or low level format to know the status of the hard disk
