My friend tried to startup his computer and it boots up and gets to the wins98 logo and that's as far as it will go. Has checked all the connections and they seem to be okay. He went to safe mode to start and when he clicked enter it went to the wins98 logo and stopped. He tried to use the startup disk they gave him with the computer and it won't proceed any farther either. Got any other suggestions? It's an NEC computer. It was working. A message came up after using the startup disk saying it couldn't continue to boot up. Said a possible reason was there might not be enough memory. He said he thinks there is plenty of space on the c drive. It was looking for some kind of command I guess and he doesn't know what to type in to get it to do anything. He'll try anything. Thanks, Ron51.
