Computer won`t boot up

  Newuser2983 22:19 12 Jan 2004

My sons computer has sudenly developed a problem in that when it is switched on it goes through post, then the Windows 98 splash screen, then after approx 45secs it displays the message- "It is now safe to turn off your computer". When it is switched back on it says that windows did not load on last boot up and to start in Safe mode. Any ideas as to the cause of this one?

When you start the computer keep pressing F8 to get the Safe Mode list choose the one that will take you to the DOS prompt, then typ as follows

SCANREG/RESTORE press enter restore an old date from the list before you had problem
