I have an old Windows 98 machine that recently started rebooting itself
right at the end of a boot cycle, even in safe mode. I mean it appears this
machine is done booting, then WHAM-O, it reboots itself. Again, even in
I have tried re-installing 98 on top of itself, I have tried deleting the
swap file and allowing Windows to create another, I have tried scanreg,
replacing all hardware (except the mobo and proc, of course), all to no
I am about to do a clean install of 98 to see if this alleviates the
problem, but really don't want to do this if it is avoidable, as the machine
is old (duh) and has a lot of software I wouldn't even begin to know where
to find again. It's a P-II 400MHz with 64M RAM, so it is not an XP upgrade
candidate (at least not in my mind).
Any help would be appreciated.
