Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
Ok I have a 98 Dell and it wont do anything... when i start it up, it gets to the Dell screen and then it goes to a black screen w/ a little flashing bar in the top left corner. It doesnt respond to anything u press on the keybord except to restart it...Before, i tried to delete everything on the c drive using the boot disk... and it gave me troubles... i cant remeber what it said be cause now the boot disk doesnt do anything. And so my dad tried to fix it by putting every floppy disk in and doing watever to see if it worked. And I think its really screwed up now... when I hold CTRL down to open the windows 98 startup menu... it says ERROR 0210:Stuck Key 03DT. press
for setup. when I press esc to resume it goes to that black screen w/ that blinking bar... and doesnt do anything...
how do i get it to even get to the command prompt? or install an operating system(preferably 98)? This is like a mess around w/ computer and i really dont care about it, I just want it working again.
any advice will help. Thanks.. oh and could u like completly explane stuff becaus im only some what computer savy. thanks again.
You haven't received a response from Whisperwolf because our email notification system is down right now.
When you start your system and before your Dell screen shows, Press either the F2 or F10 screen. This should get you a System Bios setup screen. In this screen, see if there is an entry for your Hard drive and CDROM drive.
If you can get that far comment back and I'll check back here until our email system is working again. The fact that your computer is not responding to your CDROM is not a very good sign and your computer may have been starting to fail with the first of errors you received and is now at complete risk.
