I was trying to hook up an external ZIP drive(SCSI) to my old W98 machine. I didn't have the software disk for that drive, but that drive had been hooked up to that system before and worked fine.
I couldn't figure out why it didn't work, so I decided to go into the controll panel and RESTORE to a time when it DID work. There was only one date in the restore options window, and I chose it.
Now when I try to boot- it will go through the WINDOWS screen, then it comes to a "blank" PACKARD BELL screen (like a default desktop) only there is no menu bar or start button, no icons, etc. - just the blank screen.
I don't remember a warning that said I would lose everything on the computer- and I hope I didn't- HOW DO I FIND OUT?:?:
