A few weeks ago, for some reason, my computer started up as usual, but after the Windows 98 screen shows up, the screen immediately goes blank and the computer restarts again. Naturally, because it didn't restart properly the previous time, it offers me the option if I want to start in safe mode. I go into safe mode, and everything is as normal in safe mode. Then I'll shut down or restart, and the same thing happens again. I've scanned the internet for all the potential issues and nothing has worked so far (for example, I've tried scanreg /restore but that none of the old files, which are all several years old, seem to work). Therefore, the computer perpetually starts in safe mode.
This happened once before, but I shut the computer down for a few days, and it started as normal again. This time, I'm not so lucky and it's never fixed itself. If anyone has any ideas as to how to fix this problem, that would be great. I have tried a lot of different things but clearly I'm missing the key one. Something must be happening during startup because it clearly goes blank right on the Windows 98 loading screen.
Thanks in advance!
