    Default Win 98 shuts down soon after start up

    Win 98 SE
    Pentium III 600
    64MB Ram

    This is an old PC I know and I do't know why I'm bothering either before anyone asks, except it bugs me when I can't fix somethig!
    Soon after start up displays desktop then reboots. Have reformatted hdd and reinstalled OS. Have checked all connections and removed all devices except monitor, mouse and keyboard. Weird thing is it runs fine in safe mode. Suspect it may be a motherboard problem or processor.

    Any ideas? Any and all suggestions welcome. :shock:

    if it runs find in safe mode my bet would be driver issue. you can install your drivers in safe mode if that makes any difference for you or not.
