Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
I m Soumik from Pune , my computer restarts unexoectedly whenever i insert any disc into the disc drive and it keeps on doing this untill i take the disc out of the drive . I doubt it may be the SMPS which has gone bad, but then why it does so only when disc is inserted . Can it be the data bus cable ?
You would be getting this problem due to:
1. ROM memory inside your CD/DVD Drive is not recognised by ur BIOS.
2. Would be problem with ur data cable connector.
3. Settings changed in your BIOS.
When you are inserting any cd or dvd in your drive some times it happens that ur rom memory does not load that much required files in itself.
You need to do the following:
1.First of all check ur bios settings for boot priority likewise FDD, CD/DVD Rom, HDD.
2. increase your Virtual memory that if the ROM bios is not able to load required files then it'll be loaded in virtual mem.
To increase virtual mem. follow following steps:
i. Right click my computer and select properties.
ii. Go to Advanced Tab and then select Settings button of "Visual effects, Processor Scheduling.....and virtual memory"
iii. Again select Advanced Tab
iv. In Virtual memory section select change
v. Uncheck the option for automatically manage paging file size(if it is checked)
vi. Select custom size and type initial size as 1736 and maximum size as 2048
vii. click set button click OK if any confirmation is asked.
viii. Click OK to apply the settings.
ix. Restart ur system.
3. If this doesnot take effect to ur problem then you must be aware of data cables. Try out another data cable of ur hard disk.
as well as Power cable. and then insert disk to checkout whether it is ok or still giving u the problem. if it is then there is no problem with either your system or with data cables and connectors. Replace the DVD/CD Drive.

Tips for a great answer:
Click the "Start" icon on the Windows Vista home screen. Select "eMachines," then click "eMachines Recovery Management." The eMachines Recovery Management program opens.
Click "Create Factory Default Disc." The program will tell you how many discs you will need. Make sure the correct optical drive is selected, then insert a blank disc into that drive. Click "Start" to begin the burning process.
Remove the disc when it is finished burning and label it "Recovery CD 1." Insert the next the next blank disc if one is required. Click "OK" to begin burning the next disc. Repeat this step until all of the discs have been created and labeled. Close the eMachines Recovery Management program, insert the system CD that came with the laptop and restart the laptop.
Press "F12" repeatedly when the eMachines logo is displayed on the screen to be redirected to the Boot menu. Select the optical drive, then press "Enter."
Insert Recovery CD 1 when you are prompted to insert the recovery disc. The eMachines Recovery Management program will open.
Click the "Restore" tab in the list on the left side of the eMachines Recovery Management program window, then select "Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults." The computer automatically restarts and the recovery process begins. Insert any additional recovery discs as requested. The computer will reboot automatically when the laptop has been recovered to its original factory default settings, and you will be taken to the Windows Setup screen.
Set up Windows Vista with your own personal settings.
