    Fresh Win98 OS install. At start up the system hangs at the background splash and the mouse pointer in the center of the screen. System locks up w/no mouse/keyboard control only way out is to press the on botton to restart. Safe mode work fine. i.e. mouse/keyboard control ok. I have already Fdisk/formatted HD twice with same affect. I'm stumpped.

    If safe mode works, try running MSCONFIG and removing unnecessary programs from startup.

    One easy think you can do in the future to find those things before they become problems is to copy the source files to a directory on the hard drive and install from that directory.
