is it a CDROM. Wrtr or DVD Rom, is you machine a branded model like P.bell ? etc. Bit more detail as there are a few reasons for your problems your having

i am using windows 98, pc is not branded model and it does have a cdrom re-writer and dvd player...the message only mentions cdrom/cdrom/driver....

If you go to start/run and type sysedit in the run box then navigate to the config.sys menu and see what it says in line 1 of that menu and post it on here,most likly its pointing to a driver that you have uninstalled and the line still tries to find it.

can you print the entire error message. You could try placing a "rem" in front of line one of your config sys and see if that stops the problem

You could also have a ram problem

"the following file is missing or corrupt
c:/driver/cdrom/cdrom config.sys"

"there is an error on the following file config.sys on line 1"

also i dont think this is the reason for continually freezing or restarting on its own
any suggestions please
