Problems Booting PC
This series discusses what you should do if you encounter problems booting your PC – whether the PC doesn't start at all, or appears to have power and yet nothing appears to happen. If the problem is that you're getting a bad-sounding error message about the hard drive, jump to our Hard Drive series. Two things to always have on hand: your operating system (usually Windows 95 or 98) CD and a boot disk with a CD-ROM driver installed, just in case.
