It all began when my motherboard and CPU were replaced (by a "pro"). At the time we were using win 98. It ran OK for a few weeks when we started recieving a lot of error messages. It finally got to the point where I could't even get it going in safe mode even with a start up disk.
I formatted the hard drive and installed Windows ME from dos. I installed drivers from the motherboard disk only when windows found the new hardware. Everything went OK for a week then I started receiving errors again until the computer would not start in any mode. I know some of these errors were related to the drivers for the motherboard. I also got the message- windows protection error you must restart. I formated the hard drive again and reinstalled win ME. This time I installed all the drivers from the disk and the problems got even worse. Every time I restarted the computer I got an error message just before set up completed.It froze in safe mode with another set of error messages. Every restart after that it stopped responding sooner to the point where there is now nothing. It sounds like its running but nothing comes up on the screen.The light on the monitor continues blinking instead of going solid green when the computer is turned on. Is there a step I can take to get it running, even in ms dos mode? Should the mother board be shoved down the pro's throat?

That could be due to several reasons:

1. Power Suply

2. Memory Modules

3. CMOS settings =or= battery

4. Main System Board

Was there any guarantee from the "Pro". I believe he should be the one to fix it.

There is nothing throughout software we can use to resolve the issue. Contact the "Pro". See what he says about it.
