OK, here is the situation. I have an old computer running windows 98. It has recently started booting to a blank screen. It gets past the win98 logo screen, but instead of displaying the user name/password screen, it just shows a blank black screen. It will show up on the network at this point. This started after a game my kids were playing locked up and I had to hard boot it. Tried booting in safe mode. It boots into safe mode fine, but when I reboot and let it come up normal, same thing happens. Tried using msconfig to disable just about everything in the startup, but that doesn't help. I would like to use something like taskmanager to check which programs are running on that computer. Any ideas?

Extra info:

Below is from the bootlog.txt file. Any ideas on what might be causing the problem?

Booting in safe mode uses the Windows generic display driver, and apparently that works.
The conclusion is that something broke the video driver, so it needs re-installing.
If you haven't kept the installation CD, you might still be able to find the driver on google.

You might try in safe mode to set the display driver to a generic type.
Anyway, check all the display options, whatever they may be on Win98.

Reinstalling the video drivers did it. Have a bounty. –  Kevin Nov 14 '09 at 16:57
    
You're welcome. I'm glad this worked out for you. –  harrymc Nov 14 '09 at 17:54

It works for me with PSTools from Sysinternals, using pslist to get the process list and psexec to execute pslist on the remote system:

psexec \\servername -u username -p password -c pslist.exe -accepteula

-c will copy the executable to execute (here pslist.exe) on the remote system.
-accepteula accepts automatically the license agreement that is displayed when you run for the 1st time one of the tools.

Tried that but all I keep getting is the error message:"Couldn't access [servername]: The network path was not found. Make sure that the default admin$ share is enabled on [servername]." –  Kevin Nov 11 '09 at 1:58

Have you tried running Service Manager (start > run > services.msc) and "[menu] Action > Connect to anoher computer" ? This doesn't show all running processes but if you're lucky the problem process will be in there and can be disabled or set to manual start....

I haven't looked at Windows 98 in a while, so this may be incorrect...

Try finding the user profile that is loaded at startup, and renaming the folder to profile_old. Then reboot and see if it recreates a new profile. If it works, you should be able to copy any files that you need from the renamed folders.

Windows 98? Eek!

Does this also happen if you boot into Safe Mode with Networking? You said you tried Safe Mode, but the Networking edition can be a useful diagnostic.

I'm more scared that you're still run 98, though, personally :)

It's on a computer that I let my 7,6 and 3 year old play on for precisely this reason. My "real" computer is most definitely not on 98. I upgraded to ME a long time ago ;) –  Kevin Nov 13 '09 at 20:03
    
maybe I should go back to cheering for 98? :) –  warren Nov 15 '09 at 2:22

You can try using Autoruns when in Safe Mode and see if there's anything that doesn't belong. But I don't even know if it works on Windows 98.
