START-UP PROBLEM

I have an IBM Aptiva using Windows 98.
I have to start it up about 3 times before I can make it work. It just locks up after loading.
Can anyone suggest a way to overcome this, please?

When booting, press F5 till you get the menu; choose "safe mode"

If it boots ok there:

start

run

type: msconfig

From there disable most things that are set to run under the startup tab.

Start normally and see how it goes.
