Hello,
I installed 256mb of SDRAM on my computer. (win98) I have done this before on my other computers no problem. This time I found I had to remove my video card to add the memory because the vid card Block the way. Once all was installed I started teh computer and it showed the new memory and went to the windows start logo then the screen went to a soft grey blank and would respond. It will reboot but always comes back to that screen. I have a boot disk and if I reboot on that I can move around inDOS but it will not let me restart in WIN.???:confused:

I really don't know what to say, never seen that with a working card.

Could be the card went bad, I would try another video card to see.

If you card has a cooling fan make sure it is still connected and running.

Make sure memory is inserted all the way in and tight.

Could be a software glitch of some kind.

You could try booting to the command prompt.
type scanreg /restore and restore a registry from a previous date before the problem happened. Note any software, etc, that has been installed since the registry date will have to be reinstalled.

If that doesn't work I don't know
