Here's another problem with my computer: when I turn it on, it get an error saying something about my on-screen display file being corrupted. That made a little sense to me becuase I didn't see "Mute On" when I hit mute, nor did I see the volume bars whenever I increase volume. Please help me!!!!

1.. Please read just above the text editor:

Tip: If you are asking for help to troubleshoot a computer-related problem, please be sure to include all the necessary information (ie: operating system, model number, hardware, software, etc) that will help others identify your problem for a speedy resolution.

2. It's the usual keyboard enhancer. But with what information you provided, all I can agree with is it may be in need or uninstall and reinstall.

It's some kind of add-on. See If you feel you can do without it, go into the Startup tab of MSCONFIG (via start>run) and uncheck this program. It won't run than and won't give the error message.

If you feel you need it, you might have to install it again, as Bob says, or get it from your backup (if it's there). But it's not part of Windows 98, so an install might be difficult or impossible. This doesn't seem important enough to me to warrant the use of the recovery CD that came with your computer.
