    It's usually a driver issue to not get past safemode. Look in device manager for any yellows and reinstall any drivers with conflicts.

    I would try scanreg /restore from the command prompt.

    Right-click My Computer, Properties, Device manager.

    Or Motherboard's good advice; boot into ms-dos and type scanreg /restore (note space). This gives a restore point before prob, but sometimes it's not always properly supported by 98+.
