Tried to do a factory restore the other day, but the disc wouldnt respond, and then nothing would load, PC appeared blank. Someone sent me a windows 98SE disc, which I installed. Problem is, its running as though the computer is in Safe Mode (e.g. crappy graphics, only 16bit colour etc). Installed AOL, but it says it cant detect modem. Have now added modem, but saying communication port invalid or busy. Anyone any ideas whats wrong? I am using another PC at the moment.

youve only installed windows you need to install the drivers for your graphics card soundcard if you have one, the drivers should be on your restore cd

But the restore disc isnt doing anything. A page os script comes up and then "A>", and thats it.
