I have an Emachine 400i. It has windows 98. I bought the sims and tried to boot it up. It didn't work. So I was stupid and erased all I thought that I didn't need. and it still didn't work. So I put in a slave and that gave me enough memory. Now, here is my problem. after all that I shut down the computer and booted it back up it worked fine. Then the computer started to freeze up and all you could do is hit the power button to shut it off. It would boot back up. One day I had to hit the power button twice in a row (hit once, boot up, hit again). Then during the boot up it read cd-rom not found. It then would go to a screen that said can't find system I.N.I. Press any key to continue. After pressing a key the computer would shut off. Now the computer goes to a screen before booting up the keyboard and sayes a problem press F1 to continue. My brother said he has seen it before but can't remember how to fix it. If you all could, I need to know how to get past the F1 problem and how to get Windows 98 back without a back up disk. PLEASE. Thanx.
