I am trying to get an older Dell PC up and running with Windows Me. I have reformatted the hard disc and was able to load windows on. Now when i start the Pc I get the dell logo then nothing else, sometimes it will go to windows but only about 1 attempt in 20. I have tried re-formatting and re-loading but get the same results. Original system was win 98. P3 processor with 64mb of memory.

Have you made sure everything is seated correctly especially the memory. Try the memory in a different slot if possible. You could also try reinstalling windows

May have problms accessing the Hard drive.

1st change boot order in BIOS to HDD first, floppy second CD third.

2nd Try putting the HDD on the other IDE channel and then in BIOS swap the boot order from 1 ide to the other.
