Anyone help please?
I have a small PC in my daughters bedroom just for homework and a few games running98se.
Last night she switched on, it went through the start-up process gave the normal one beeb and then the screen went blank. I have tried booting with a start up floppy but get the same results.

denali, if U have the 98se disk, put it in the PC restart the pc and go into BIOS to change the boot-up to CD. Re-install 98se. U should not lose any files/folders.

Thank you for your speedy reply. I tried your suggestion but It still beeps once and goes blank. I cannot get into window at all

Have you checked the monitor? Try another monitor that you know works.

Thanks for your reply. I know the monitor works because it shows the boot screen until the one beeb.And then it hangs after finding my disks.
The final line reads IRQ8.

Don't know about your computer but on my computer IRQ8 is the System CMOS/Realtime Clock. So maybe your motherboard battery needs changing???
