Everytime I start my computer and Windows ME loads up an error message comes up and the cpu freezes. I have been told that I have to reinstall Windows ME. How do I go about doing this?

When I start the cpu and scandisk runs an error comes up and says "Scandskw has caused an error in IPLPAPI.DLL". When this comes up the cpu freezes and won't do anything. I was able to start it in safe mode to get past running the scandisk and properly shut windows down. Now everytime I start Windows it says "Autochk has caused an error in KRNL386.exe" and windows freezes up. What should I do? Do I need to reinstall everything? If so how do I go about doing that?

Do you have a restore point accessible in Safe Mode that can be used before you try a reinstall? If you can't access one and do not have an image of your boot disk a reinstall is the only choice.

If your system disk is bootable and you have the boot sequence set to access the CDROM drive then you are all set. If you don't have that capability, find someone who will download the W98 boot disk from www.bootdisk.com for you, then boot with that disk and proceed with typing X:\SETUP (where X is your CDROM drive letter).
