I am having basically the same situation. I turned on my computer a couple of days ago and all I got was blue OE and OD screens. I couldn't launch any of my programs. The computer started up and that was about it. I tried "Old Faithful" Gateway GoBack which had worked fantistically and saved my butt on several other occasions. Due to overload....I HAD NO GOBACK HISTORY AT ALL!!!I spoke with Microsoft who told me that my partition information had somehow gotten changed. I was instructed to partition my hard disk using a DOS partition, format and then reinstall Windows 98SE. I couldn't find any step by step info on the procedure, so equipped with my total ignorance about doing any of this, I took a stab at it (I had nothing else to loose........except for my sanity) and somehow I got through it and made my computer work. Or so I thought. I couldn't install any of my printing or desktop programs due to insufficient drive space. I took a look at my C Drive and it read 1.99GB. What happened to the rest of my 20GB I had before? Could it have eloped with your missing GB's???
If anyone can help or knows where I can find step-by-step detailed instructions to fix this I would be eternally grateful. Until then I will remain my usual "clueless" self. Thanks!! TC
I was doing a system restore and after a while I went to clean up my temp folder I noticed that my hard drive space had shunk dramatically I tried to do the system restore again and again the same thing happened.Now I have a 40 GB hard drive that is now down to 3.92 GB of free space.Does anybody know what is going on here and can anyone help?It seems that the files for some reason every time I did the system restore were being copied,and where the copied files are being stored I don't know I have looked everywhere.Thanx!
