Likely a driver conflict. Will the PC boot properly?

If you can, go to start, run and type


and then choose "scan now"

and follow instructions.

Ok, Been there and done the deed. setup appeared to be corrupt, have restored it. lets hope that sorts it.. Thanks

Just had to re-boot twice before my PC would start as it should. The same problem! Have tried updating drivers for sound,Graphics & mother/b. Could it be memory probs?

Yes, memory is often the cause; can you get the exact message and post it here?

512mb is to high for windows 98 infact your running the max for this OS.

A Fatal exception 06 has occoured at 0028:00000238. thecurrent application will be terminated.

512Mbs is not the max you can use with 98se.It can be made to run with alot more by adding MaxPhysPage=30000 to the cfg.It is the "recommended" max amount,but this also often depends on which website you lookup the info on. ;-)

I have been running 512 MB for over a year with no probs till now.

  Sealer 17:51 08 Feb 2004

Can you elaborate on CFG settings please?

  gold 47 18:35 08 Feb 2004

Many thanks for you info chegs,i could never run W98 with 512mb it use to hang or not boot i did at the time not know about the software you have said you could add.
