I am not shure that the upgrade from win98 to xinxp its going to work...

why dont you do a clean installation_? it will be much better if you do that, jus set the bios to boot from the winxp cd and do a clean install.

remember to backup your data.

check the power supply.. in many times when you add new hardware in a old system the power supply need to be replace, remember that the mobo, the processor, and other devices sucks from your power supply if the power supply is not big to support the demanding energy consuming, then youll start to have a lot of strange problems not related to software... be AWARE... hehehe.. iknow nthing to do with this issue..

Make sure your hardware is compatible. If you can, check all voltages coming from the power supply to be sure they are within proper tolerances. Next, run the installation disk again but choose the Repair option. (I had one machine on which I needed to run Rapair twice before it was fine.)

If this doesn't work and the hardware is compatible, repartition, reformat and try again. When it asks, insert the old 98 cd to provide verification of an upgrade.

I agree with the responses that you have received from other members. Just make sure the hardware is combatible with XP and that BIOS is up-to-date.

Good luck.

an upgrade from 98 to xp should work so what u do is reistal it with limited hardware attached to your system put up sp2 to it and then try connecting hardwares to it may be it is sorting out things from 98 to xp even i had similar prob long time back and that time it was my lan card giving me that trouble
