Win98 SE locks up overnight.

By javier ·
My computer does not wake up after left on overnight. I have removed all programs that are on startup. I have replaced most hardware to a diffrent brand, Nic, Video card, sound card, modem, and ram. I have disabled the power saving options on cmos. On Windows 98SE i have selected always on power scheme.

Win98 SE locks up overnight.

Check the screen saver parameters. Some give you the option to put the machine to sleep. If you have the option in your cmos, set it up to reinitialize all cards when it wakes up (even if you set it to not force sleep). Check the details of the 'always on' scheme to make sure that someone has not changed a parameter (changed the function without changing the name.)

Good luck.
