Hi, startup and shutdown issues are extremely common with windows 98. On microsoft's website, look at knowledge base article Q188867. Article title is, "Windows 98 startup problems." They offer a number of possibilties ranging from checks throughsafe mode to startup options. Best of luck.

Quite often boot up problems with the screen freezing are related to drivers having problems loading. Check the drivers for whatever hardware was recently installed on the system (possibly the mouse driver) and update the drivers with the latest from the hardware vendors site.

I ran into the same problems once. I press a key or move the mouse and it goes through.
Extracted Cab47 + cab48 file from the win98 CD in the c:\windows\system and c:\widows\system32 directory. If your using a Logitech mouse, extract cab49 file to c:\windows\system\vmm32 also.

Are you on a network? Press escape when the windows screen is up to see where the PC has stopped loading. It could be your NIC card failing to initialize. SMC had some 10/100 cards out that had bad chip sets that would cause it not to be able to auto negotiate. If this fits your scenario, try changing the network card from auto negotiate to 10 mbps and see if it helps. SMC 9432 chip set 83C170 had this problem although I also found it on the 83C171 cards too.
