My old Advent computer with Windows 98 and 128 mbs of RAM is now refusing to start. All goes well at boot-up until it reaches - 'Starting Windows 98...' 'MODE prepare code page function completed' 'MODE select code page function completed' C:\> I have no knowledge of DOS, and this has never happened before, so any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Will it start in Safe Mode? Keep pressing F5 when computer booting up. If it goes, Go to Run type MSCONFIG and remove all the tickes in startup tab exept System Tray, then try starting the computer Normal
Then use F8 and choose selective start up, You will have to Click yes for items untill it does the above make a note of the item that is the problem. Then next time you start as above select no for the item that stopped it starting
