Win 98 problem.

A colleague who bought a recon PC a few years ago has encountered the following problem:- He received an error message (which he can't remember)and cancelled it. When he restarted the computer he was prompted with the product key registration (which he doesn't think he ever got). Needless to say that he can't get the computer to boot up. Anyone any ideas why it would do this?
Many Thanks.
Steve.

Yes start with a Win98se OEM Floppy disc from click here tenth file down Put floppy in comp and double click the download to create a boot floppy. Start Computer with floppy disc let it load till it gets to A:\> then type SCANREG /RESTORE Press Enter key it should look like this

A:\SCANRG /RESTORE

Choose a Date before the problem to restore he will have to use the arrow keys and enter key.
