98 freezes on bootup

By rodowd ·
Since my son installed SIM Theme Park, 98 freezes during bootup. Takes 5 to 6 tries to boot up the pc. Boot.txt was very little help and I have run the 98 setup to replace all the system files. The problem remains. Help.

98 freezes on bootup

Have you tried to boot into Safe Mode? Have you uninstalled game? From the DOS prompt you can run scanreg /f to see if it can fix the registry. Or do an MSCONFIG at the START >>>RUN and on the start up tab uncheck things that are not needed. Hope something here helps. I think the game is loading on boot-up and causing the problem

Try removing the startup sound from Windows, this has been a glitch that has spanned earlier 95 through 98SE , but is rare in 98 and 98SE , but it does happen. It is caused by Windows moving the Drivers around , also set the shutdown to slow shutdown (Remove the fast shutdown option), as this drops certain drivers to speed action , but can drop a driver that is needed by the setup, and likely would look normal.
Hope you resolve it. Luck

Boot to Safe Mode. Try running msconfig. Under the startup tab look for any elements that the Theme Park program installed to run at startup. Uncheck them and reboot. This might fix it.

The best way is by trying to run scanreg/restore at c:.But if you can boot from safe mode,remove the SIM Theme Park software and then run regedit and remove it completely in the registry.
