Motherboard : Intel 810 chipset - PC Partner
CPU : Intel Celeron 667
RAM : 64 MB
HDD (IDE) : Segate 10 GB
CD Drive : 40x creative
OS : Windows 98

Problem :
When ever i start the PC. It takes lot of time to load windows 98 and also working in windows 98 it takes more time to open a program, while saving or closing a program it hangs. When working for more than an half hour or so..PC goes into not responding stage..
and after pressing ctrl+alt+del keys.. a System is busy..blue screen with msg is displyed and i have to restart the PC and then PC does'nt boot. When trying after hour or so.. PC boots normally..

Please advise..

Hello samad1104 and welcome to BC.

Try going to Start>Run> and typing in msconfig. Look under the Startup tab to see what programs you have running at startup. At the top of this page you will see the link for our Startup Database. Enter the names of these startup programs into that and disable any that are unnecessary. See if that improves your system performance.

I'd also run a hdd diagnostic tool on your hdd. The symptons your having could also indicate there is something wrong with the hdd. Seagate has a generic test that will work on any HDD. If there is a error sometimes these can be fixed by a zero wipe of the drive.

When was the last time you defragged the drive?
