    I was using my computer, Win 98SE, and left the room for a second. When I returned it was locked. The only way to restart was to turn it off.

    On reboot, it booted as normal and came up asking for my win98 serial number. It acted like it was the first boot after installing windows. I entered my serial number and windows continued to load. Once past my network long on, it gave me a page fault error, and stopped loading.

    I tried to boot several times and always the same thing. The only different than normall boot up it had change to a higher video res.

    I tried to boot in safe mode to reset the video res, but in safe mode it would load until the point that it tells you what safe mode is made for and then I get the same page fault error. Safe mode stops working and I have to back out.


    Any ideas,

    Thanks a bunch

    Check that the memory and all the cables are seated properly.

    sounds like you could have problems with your video card.
    try and update your video card drivers.

    what was the page fault error?

    Update: I got past the problem by running scanreg/ retore. I was able to boot normally but I have a host of spyware going on. I ran pepper fix and ad-ware in safe mode, but I still have some spyware. here is my log.
