My problem is with an Athlon 1700 running Windows 98 second edition. It now regularly (but not always) stops part way through booting up. It has gone a long way through the boot up sequence and seems to fail just before the normal screen with wallpaper appears. The monitor then reports no signal. A single ctrl alt del will restart it. I have done a virus scan and Norton Utilities scan and neither report problems. Any ideas what this could be? Thanks
Thanks. I tried that but it is when processing the registry that it fails. I have looked at the bootlog.txt but the last 2 lines just say processing unknown. When it does boot up, it is fine. The last 3 times I booted up, I unplugged the USB devices first and it booted every time. I then plug them back in and everything still works. I don't know if that is just coincidence! I wondered if it was a power supply problem but the first USB hub has its own power supply.
