Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

On my old Micron Computer, windows 98 freezes on the splash screne. The bar on the bottom continues to indicate that it is loading but after leaving it for 3 hours, nothing changed. I recently removed the battery and had to reconfigure the BIOS. Since there was an arbitraty password on it. Is this problem most likely due to a virus on windows or an error in the BIOS?

Is it possible to install Windows 2000 OS on a brand new hard drive in a Micron Millennia Computer that originally had Windows 98? Would there be anything on the motherboard that could prevent the...


Yes you would be able to install that OS on the system but the only thing you woudl have to look at is memory. professional version of 2000 requires 64MB of memory minimum and you need atleast a 10GB HDD. other than that, finding the dirvers may be a little hard these days and Windows 2000 is no longer supported by Microsoft so you will not get any updates for the OS post Nov 06

OS does not work in pc


The Windows 98 option seems to be DOS-only. You could try typing WIN or WINDOWS at that C:\> prompt.

For Windows XP, you can try a few things:

1. Boot into Windows XP, but hit F8 BEFORE the splash screen (with the scrolling bar) appears. You will get a menu. Try Start with last known good configuration. See if it boots. If not, repeat, but choose Safe Mode. If it will not boot in Safe Mode, you have a more serious problem. Continue to 2....

2. Insert your Windows XP CD in the CD-ROM drive (you need to have your BIOS set to boot from CD first, or look at the POST screen for an option that lets you select boot device). If it asks, press a key to boot from CD. Let it load. First off, try pressing R to go into the recovery console. Follow the instructions. When it asks you which Windows you want to log on to, choose the appropriate one. When it asks for a password, try just pressing Enter (return). If that works, you will get a prompt similar to the Windows 98 screen. Here, try the following:

CHKDSK /r
(this will take a while - just leave it. Note that you may see it restart the % count up to 5 times. You'll get a report the prompt again when it is finished. Hopefully it says it repaired one or more errors)

FIXBOOT
(say Y to the question)

Now reboot. If you get the menu screen again, don't choose safe mode or last good configuration, choose Start Windows normally.

If this doesn't work, you either have a badly damaged Windows install or a hardware fault. You could try booting into the Windows CD and doing a repair install. Where you pressed R before, press ENTER. Follow the on-screen instructions - you want to do a repair install.
