Hi Guys, would appreciaite some help/advice on a problem I am having booting into Windows 98se.
Tried cleaning up my PC a few days ago (deleted some games, *.temp files, old documents etc etc) as my PC was running rather slow. Trouble is now, since i have done that I am unable to boot into Windows. There doesnt seem to be a problem with the Hard Disk but during bootup just before it is supposed to kick into Windows I am having a blue screen of death (A Fatal Exception OE has occured at 0167:00000001). Can anyone help with this? It is the same when i try safe mode.
I have tried running a scandisk /all and an error message comes up saying there is not enough free conventional memory to perform a surface scan and it mentions putting some REM's in my Config.sys (this doesnt work) and also mentions EMM386.EXE (not sure what this means?)
I have also tried booting up with the windows bootdisk but this doesnt seem to work either when running from CD (error message - Windows setup requires 'Largest Executable Program Size' to be at least 442368 bytes to run)
Any help will be great guys,
