View Full Version : Freaky Win98 System Issue

My dad's pc keeps booting up for no reason. It is inconsistent and there is not specific time that it is off before it turns on automatically.

I have checked the bios and the wake on command is disabled. I even enabled it and then disabled it again to see if it would reset it but that did nothing. I have also performed all the basic maintenance including a disk cleanedup, a thorough scandisk and a complete defrag and no errors returned.

Do any of you experts out there have advice on some other things I can try? Your opinions would be appreciated! :)

loose power supply connector where it connects to the motherboard
I had mine somehow get loose and all sorts of weird things happened

It really sounds like a WAKE ON LAN issue. You've checked in the BIOS and made sure it's off?
