Hangs/Freezes/Locks-Windows | Windows98 |
For problems with windows hanging check the following possible causes.
Hangs on Startup
Windows 98, Hangs, On Startup
For general troubleshooting use the MSconfig utility to remove some of the startup programs. ( click Start Run type MSCONFIG in the box and press <enter>).
Click the Startup Tab and uncheck as many of the programs as needed and reboot the computer. This will cause windows to start with as few programs as possible and hopefully isolate the cause of the hanging. Then you can repeat the above procedure and add in the programs until the lockup comes back on.
You can also select the "Diagnostic Startup" option under the General tab and when you reboot you can load the devices manually.
