When start PC Win98SE i can see Windows start up menu,and i have to choose wich mode i want to start.Before it was not so.Can somebody help me?

Is one of the options 'Safe Mode'? If so the PC is entering the Bios program because of a test failure.

  JUHAN 14:54 06 Aug 2003

No itisnot.I can choose Normal mode without problem.

As graham√ says, are you offered 4 options?, (White letters on a black display}.and is "Safe mode" one of the options? j.

  JUHAN 15:22 06 Aug 2003

Yes,it is.

Then it is as graham√ has said. you will need to run, [I think] Scandisk. To do this, click on start, then on the "run" command, a small window will appear, in this window type the word.


Windows will now check your disk for errors and if finding any will give you the option to fix. Regards. j.

Is your machine shutting down properly. This was always a problem with 98.
An incorrect shutdown can cause this to happen when you next start up.

My machine shutting down properly.Scandisk did show any problems.

OK, if the Hard Drive is not the problem it may be a hardware problem. Have you added any hardware recently?

  Djohn 16:22 06 Aug 2003

Try the following. Start/settings/control panel/system/device-manager tab. see if there are any exclamation marks "!" or question marks "?" against any of your programs. j.
