Computer is 3-4yrs old PIII-500MHz, Win98SE OS. When I attempt to power up the computer, everything appears to load as it has in the past. However it never gets past the Windows logo display. I have attempted to boot in safe mode (same issue). I am able to access the BIOS, and do not see anything out of the ordinary there. I have not made any recent changes to the computer. In fact, it rarely gets used. We have a newer laptop and use that instead.
Due to the age, could this be a CMOS battery issue? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
