where is my hardware going?
Posted on 1998-10-27
Recently I ran into insanity again with win98. With nothing detrimental happening i clicked on the system info the other day and voila got a gen prot fault. so i rebooted. this continued to happen from that point forward when i clicked on anything. soooo...decided to use sys recovery thru win98cd. no help whatsoever.
finally reinstalled win98. first tried to reinstall to windows directory but problem persisted. then reinstalled to new directory and started from scratch. worked okay for one day then back with the gpf. soooo...reinstalled again. now message reads i need to have win95 installed to use upgrade. soooo removed win98 and reinstalled win95 then reinstalled win98.
Now....i have no cdrom, both the c & a drive are running in msdos compatibility mode and am at my wits end with this.
please give me some feedback here.
i have tried everything from using the startup disk to access cdrom (which works) and copying cd info to hard drive so i can access the drivers to going thru win update with no help. 90% of my software is on cds and most of my backup stuff is on my extra drives (d&e) which are no longer available at all.
