I have just upgraded my cpu from a P3 1.1ghz coppermine to a 1.3ghz celeron tualatin ,my system is dual boot 98se/xp pro sp2.the computer works fine in xp but hangs on 98se it will start in safe mode,when starting logged it hangs when loading VSDATA.VXD ,it will also load & run on a clean install of 98se.I have a Soundblasterlive sound card and seem to remember reading you can get a problem with cpu upgrades with this card.

anyone out there with any ideas as i can't reinstall programs on clean install of windows as i've lost some of the passwords /install keys

Are you running zone alarm on your 98 install? remove it in safe mode and see what happens on the next boot
