Problem: when a game CD is run it starts and runs for a very short time, the video or load window stops, often back to the windows desktop screen, the CD cannot be ejected even after a control-alt-delete action which usually indicates a "Msgsrv32(not responding)" message. Further work with the system usually makes the problem worse and a control-alt-delete shut down is the common end with a startup releasing the CD and the system works some what normally. The system is beginning to start with a system check (red and blue file, disk checking dialog boxes) . There seems to be some progressiveness to the worsening of the situation. The CD drive seems to work with software installations or file reading.
System: Quantex 450 PII, 128, 13.6gig hd, Voodoo2, Windows 98/ IE 5
History: The system worked good until Windows SE upgrade was installed - a 3Com networking card was added, and microsoft homeconnect software installed
Question: If a solution to this problem might be reinstalling Windows? Where can good easy to understand directions be found (I an a computer rookie)
