try using your 98 startup disc and running check disc and fix disc in dos or fix master boot record

Try a Registry Restore. Switch on and keep hitting the F8 key until you get a Menu. Select Menu Item 6 and press enter. When you get to the C: prompt type in scanreg /restore and press Enter. You will now get a list of dates (american format) select a date prior to when the problem started and press Enter. Follow the prompts and reboot.
