Whenever I started working with Windows 98 (PC with intel celeron 1.7 Ghz processor and 128 MB SD RAM), it hangs nomatter what. I have checked the C drive with scandisk and there is no problem. I also formatted the C drive and reinstall windows but the problem still persists. Sometimes, it restarts automatically of its own like pressing the reset button of the cabinet. Sometimes a blue screen appears with some error message. In all cases, the keyboard and mouse doesnot response, so I have only the option for restarting it by pressing the reset button. I ran system file checker and 'hyjack this' for finding the solution but of no use.
Any idea for the cause of the problem?

That's awfully fast for a win98 machine. I don't think win98 was designed for that fast a processor. You might try underclocking the system and see what happens.

Dear Stasiek,
The error message is as follows:-
"A fatal exception 0E has occured at 0028: C004AA8A in VXD VFAT (01) + 00008AB2. The current application will be terminated.
Press any key to terminate the current application.
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart.
Press any key to continue"

Pressing any key makes the screen blank (Dark black). At this point, the Ctrl+Alt+Del keys of the keyboard donot response. All I had to do is pressing the reset button on the CPU cabinet.

Hope the information will be usefull to you.

Thanks for attention.
