This is a tough one. Running windows 98. Had to take SCSI (for CD-r) out to install windows 98 for some reason? After installation, put SCSI back in PCI slot, rebooted and windows 98 detected it and installed software. This worked fine for a few months until I had a CPU fan failure, had to take CPU out to install fan.... now windows would not load until we took SCSI card out again, then windows loads, removed SCSI from device manager, put card in, rebooted, windows detects card, loads software. Everything working fine, I restart machine several times, and after shutting computer down and unplugging, about 1/2 hour later plug in and start computer, loads windows perfectly. But... the next morning, same old thing--windows won't load until we take SCSI card out and remove from device manager blah blah blah...
What should I do? It seems that so long as the machine is warmed up, things work well. But when it cools down, windows can't communicate with the SCSI. What would you suggest I try?
