I did take the computer back to the office and use the keyboard that was working on it and it did start up. However, I couldn't get the defaults to work. I am back to square one. I will re install windows 98 again and see what happen. I'll get back with you later. Thanks again for your support.

1: reinstall windows. you did this without success.
2: A system driver is damaged and needs reinstallation. If you have the original drivers' disk that comes with every new computer you should reinatall the drivers. If you don't have it then you must identify your motherboard (there should be markings on it) and look for the drivers in the internet either at the manufacturer's site or in drivers libraries such as driverguide.com.
3: there is a bios problem. You can force default values by removing the battery that keeps parameters for 10-15 minutes. If you are comfortable with digging inside the computer than do the following.
Unplug the computer from the power cable.
open the computer box on the righthand side (looking from back to front)
carefully take out the round silvery battery. take care not to damage the holder.
wait 10-15 minutes, reinstall the battery, close the computer, plug in the power cable and start the computer.
I see no shorter way to fix the problem. try first taking out the battery. that is easy if you can do that. Finding drivers for an old computer can be a tiring business.
best of luck.

I took out the battery and place it back in after 30 minutes and now I am happy to report that I got my printer back to working. Now, I am trying to get my dsl ethernet modem back to working. I'll report how it all come out. Thanks again you are a great life saver.
