 Computer will not boot .... Period Post a Reply  
From: Jay on 12/05/2002
I have an Athlon 800, running win 98, Iím having problems with a CD-ROM drive but thatís not the main problem. For a while I was receiving a few blue screen messages saying that I could not write to drive C: but ďpressing any keyĒ would make that problem go away. On occasion I would a little message that said my second drive was full, ,but the thing is I had a gig and half left.
Now the main problem is my computer will not boot in windows. As far as I know everything works (all attached drives and peripherals) but no matter what I try I canít get into Windows. Actually I canít even get into DOS.
Someone please help me.

Sounds like you formatted your harddrive
if it said it was full then it ask's that question
do you want to fix it soo your hard drive isnt full anymore
all you gotta do is press any key and thats it

It sounds like a bad hard drive.

To test it, you can use a boot floppy for Windows 98 and run the setup from the install CD. It will automatically run a scan disk and test your hard drive for problems. If it finds any, cancel the setup and replace the hard drive.

There is a low likelyhood that you will be successful in restoring any files from your old hard drive. You can get another hard drive up and running with an operating system with the old hard drive as a secondary drive. Try to copy your old files to the new hard drive. You will probably get some data off, but most likely get errors for other files.
