So I have a Pentium 1 laptop running win 98, and for some reason it just randomly decided to start crashing/shutting off during the RAM check at the very beginning of startup. It cycles through the ram, gets to about 80000 Bytes and shuts off. It does it consistently at the same spot. I removed both of the ram sticks (one at a time, of course) with the same results. It gets to that 80000 mark and dies. I cant even get to the boot selection or bios or anything, it crashes LONG before that. It used to work beautifully, perfect for word processing, and then one day just died. I'm quite saddened by this :-/ Any ideas?
