Can't get into windows

  Chris_c 21:15 23 Mar 04

I'm having a problem getting windows to start up. Whenever i try to start it up, it gets as far as the desktop, where all i see is the background picture for 2 seconds, and then it just switches itself off without any error messages or anything. When I try to start it in safe mode, I get a blue screen that just comes back when i press any key. I am running windows 98. How can I get it to start again? Any help would be appreciated!

Hi there

Start the computer and start tapping the F8 key. You will be presented with a screen. Select start in ms-dos

When in dos type scanreg/fix

To exit dos type exit

That seemed to work! I'll remember that one for the future.
Thank you very much, it's not often that the very first suggestion works, and such a seemingly simple one at that!
