It doesn't look too good, in my opinion. It's a nice coincidence you already have a new computer.
I Am running windows 98SE. Since I got a new computer I disconnected this computer and moved it to another room but when I went to boot it up I either get a message "Windows protection error. You must restart your computer". Or sometime it boots to the safe mode. Either way it will not boot up to the normal mode. Any help?
