    Please advise

      I suspect that you have an error that has triggered, and is not displaying the error Window.

      Personally, I always perform a clean installation when upgrading the OS.
      It avoids problems, and starts you over with a clean slate.

      Start by bootinginto safe mode.
      If you can boot into safe mode, check device manager, and delete any device with an error mark (“?” “!”).

      If that doesn’t correct the problem, run msconfig, and disable ALL programs that run at startup.
      You don’t want any applications running while you are installing device drivers.

      Next, boot from a startup disk, and run setup from the CD again.
      This sometimes corrects installation errors.

      You might also try booting up with just the video card installed.
      Get everything working properly, then add your other plug-in cards 1 at a time from a clean boot.

      You may also consider just keeping Win98se. It is more stable than ME.

      Format and go back to 98se. I don’t believe MS is supporting either after July this year. The only real difference is some of the media players which you can download for free anyway. Good Luck!

      I’m with that crowd. Dump the ME load and load the Win98SE setup and patch it fully right away if you aren’t going to upgrade to at least 2K or XP Pro. You will have until June 27th or so of this year, after that support is gone. A fully patched andmaintained copy Win98SE will do you well…No BSOD’s or illegals in 10 mos. on my latest here.

      Amen to that boys!!! ME is a complete waste of time. Windows 98SE is one of the most stable platforms I have come across. My advice is dont get infected by the ‘must upgrade’ bug and stick to 98.

      If you use ME you’ll be sorry……
