Hi all, been a long time since I've needed help with my PC, but here I am again... We have an old Gateway that we haven't used in ages, and we were planning to get rid of it, so I formatted the drive, completely wiped it, there was nothing left, no OS, but we were getting rid of it. When we turned it on, it would come up and say "invalid disk" something like that, basically it said "theres nothing on the hard drive to boot" Now, we do want to keep it, and to re-install 98 on it, since it had 98 on it, it obviously meets the requirements, but I can't install 98. I have a legal copy of a CD that says "Microsoft Windows 98" "For distribution with a new PC only..." etc. So I figured plug the computer in, turn it on, put the CD in... and nothing happened. It just sits there. I went and looked around google and saw "startup disk" stuff, but honestly I have no idea what I'm doing. Every "help" page starts in the command prompt and my computer doesn't even say the "invalid..." that message anymore, no cmmand prompt. It's just a blank screen... doesn't even recognize its plugged into a computer. Thanks for the help!
