Sounds like there a device like a modem, harddrive, mouse (more likey ram) has stoped working. even when windows 98 idle its still doing stuff with the ra, and cpu. maybe some if your ram is bad? thats why its saying that, and its giving you the change to try to rewrite to the ram? or cpu?

Thanks.  That's what was wrong with it.  While I was waiting for an answer, i did my own research, i found out my cpu was overheating and causing it to reset or make it unstable and give errors like the one i posted.  Now i made a mod for my computer that blows air over the motherboard and its working perfectly! ;)  Evedently when it overheated it made the system unstable and maybe caused it to not function correctly when writing to the ram?  Either way, its fixed now. Thanks
