    Booting from CD will always help you out. No matter how bad your problem is, insert the cd you see it says boot from cd press a key, press enter and it will take you to windows 98 os install blue screen. it will take about 39 minutes to complete the setup. and you will have no problem of lock up after that.

    its a long and time consuming procedure, Go into Safe Mode. click on Start - Run- msconfig then click OK. go to the Startup tab. Checking and unchecking the boxes until you find the one that is causing this issue. To test them, you have to click OK after making a small change, then restarting the computer normally and then test it out.
