More than one irritating problem!

Hi there, i bought this pc:

Windows 98
800Mhz PIII
128.0Mb Ram (only shows as 112Mb though!)

about 3 months ago, and just got broadband last week. Before i got BB in, i was told i would need Windows 98 SE or higher. So my cousin came up with the disc, and we tried to format the pc, when we tried "format C:\" i think, it didnt work.
So im assumin theres some files missing, anyway as i couldnt install this new Windows 98 SE, somehow im on BB now (obviously).

1) So the answer to my first question is, why cant it format?

2) I sometimes boot the pc up, and a black screen shows saying "Windows protection error" (Microsoft have no answer to this").

3) And my final question is, sometimes when i load nero (i have re-installed more than once) i get a blue screen up, which locks up the pc.

I would be grateful for help on all these problems, if not one.

Thanks in advance, DJ

You need to boot with a boot disk then format c: to format it.

Or install 98SE over the top of 98 without formatting click here

Vog, i tried with a boot disk before, i think Format.exe is missing from my system (it doesnt go on the boot disk when i create one!)

Cheers santos, will get back to you later after i check them links out.

Thanks, DJ

The nero issue i think is simply down to resourses
