hi
welcome to geekstogo

Hello.

Thanks for the help. I dont get on a comp. often these days so I cant monitor this post well. I dont get ""Error" messesges per say, but upon start up on the B+W DOS screen in "set up" ( F-4) I get problem noted but ( sory!) I dont remeber specificly. One I remember is listed as "Unkown Problem". If I could dwnload a de-bugg program onto a floppy, that might help. Thanks again for any assistance.

Do you have a Windows 98 boot disk (floppy)? Reboot your computer using the boot disk, and at the command prompt type "scanreg /restore" (without quotes). Choose a date before the problem began.

This will restore the Windows registry to an earlier version. If this doesn't work you'll likely be forced to reformat and reinstall. <_<
