I have a windows 98 first edition computer. I am having an issue where if I try to restart the system the screen goes black and then the monitor goes into standby but the power light is on on the keyboard and on the tower. The fans continue to run but it does not reboot. When I shutdown the system it shuts down fine. When I select to put the system in standby it goes in and out of standby just fine.
I tried disabling the secondary Ide controller master and slave in the BIOS. This did nothing I was thinking this problem may be related to the cd-rom drives locking up. Apparently it is not. I also tried disabling PCI Steering and I downloaded the shutdown patch which seemed to help some because now at least I get a windows is shutting down screen but yet it still will not reboot it just sits there.
Any ideas ?
