You can try starting win98 in safe mode, keep shift key pressed on startup to force safe mode. Then, If you can start in safe mode you may try to troubleshoot the problem uninstalling software recently installed, looking for devices that are not working properly in device menager, and eventually performing a virus scan and a system check using Norton utilities or a similar program. If the PC doesnt even start in safe mode I suggest re-installing the system from Win98 CD.

Hope this may help

Hello there,

Initially, you can do a disk cleanup and disk defragmentation. Go click on Windows Start >> All Programs >> Accessories then System Tools. Disk cleanup will delete all uneccessary files in your computer. Disk defragmenter rearranges files stored on the computer making it load easily.

You can also do a free scan by clicking on the link below.

If this happened after installing IE8, I would suggest you try and start the computer in safe mode and then uninstall. Go to C:\WINDOWS\ie8\spuninst and double click on spuninst.exe (picture of a computer). This will revert the system back to the previous version of Internet Explorer.

Restart the pc and see if it loads back into windows OK

If this does not fix the issue, go back into safe mode, click on start, run, msconfig. Click on system restore and follow the instructions. This will take you back to a previous point in time so make sure you choose a time when the pc was working.

If you are unable to get into safe mode or the above still does not work, then there may be a corruption in Windows. You would need to think about repairing windows or recovering windows back to the way it was when you bought it with your recovery discs or a Windows XP CD

Hope that helps

Computer boots up with many pixel problems

Missing pixels usually mean only one thing the video card is shot and must be replaced. Try to get an older video card (maybe borrow from a friend) to test and make sure it's not the monitor or wiring. If a different video card works and yours keeps failing, a replacement is the only solution short of owning a clean room, robotic arms, a very good grasp on electrical engineering, and fixing that extremely tiny circuitry by yourself.
