Hi everyone, AMD 1600xp cpu, asus k7s5a mobo, win98se, 512mb ram. At startup we go straight to win98se startup menu with safe mode highlighted and the message that windows didn't load properly. So, click ok, it goes into safe mode ok. If instead of safe mode you choose normal, it then says, windows protection error press any key to continue, you press any key and it then states that it is ok to shut down windows! I've tried booting with the win 98se disc and reinstalling windows but i still get the same messages. Any ideas all you wonderful people!!
