Hey guys- I really need some help on Windows 98. I just installed some new RAM, and after rebooting, everything was fine...until my system crashed. No big deal, this has happened to me numerous times (which is why I will soon be upgrading to Win 2000). After restarting, I get an error message telling me that Windows will not boot and it recommends that I enter safe mode (it gives me seven options with safe mode as the default). No matter which option I try, I cannot get back to a normal "windows environment." I do have the recovery disks that came with the system (generic HP disks that contain an image of the entire system as it was shipped from the factory). My question: If I need to use the recovery disks that they supply, will it wipe out my whole harddrive? I don't care if it wipes out all of my programs that I can reinstall, but what about "My Documents?" Do I need to use these recovery disks or is there a better option? As soon as I can get in to back up my C drive, I will be reformatting the C drive and installing Windows 2000. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help!
