    I had to reload win 98 to correct another problem, which was fixed. Now, when i launch a game the screen goes black and the computer locks up. This happens about the time when the CDROM normally spins up to xransfer info, it remains still. This happens to more than one game and i have reloaded each. The only way to get back is to turn the computer off then on to reboot. I have reloaded win 98 again to no avail. The CROM works fine with programs other than games, i.e. tripmaker, office, even misic CDs work fine.
