With no Windows 98se CD, I can assure you that sooner or later you will have an event requiring said CD to repair the system.
Obtain one before making any repairs!!!
This includes trying to fix your current issue.
Let me state this again. Repairing your current issue without having a proper OS CD is a very bad idea.
my operating system is win 98se.the computer will start and automatically go in safe mode.it does this intermittenly.and sometimes it hangs on windows 98 splash screen.i have windows explorer 6.0,256 meg. ram.
i do not have a win 98se cd,should i make a boot disk and how do i do this?
i would really appreciate help with this.
