What's on the screen when the computer freezes?

Check all the connections are secure.

Can you start it in Safe Mode?

Keep tapping the F8 key while the computer is booting.

If you can start it in Safe Mode, then it might be a driver issue.

Try Safe Mode.

There is an issue with Win98 and fast processors.
There is a fix you can download to fix this

try opening the case and see if the fan on the cpu is running this could be an overheating problem. You may find the pc filled with fluff etc. just running it with the case open may allow it to operate.

Freezing during loading is usually a driver problem.

1. try booting with all USB devices unplugged

2. Boot to safe mode and try uninstalling devices in device manger until the prolem goes away

was the pc okay and then suddenly wouldn't load OS or have you changed anything and then encountered this problem?

Please give as much detail as poss - the more you tell us the better.
