Hi,

Is the Win98se backup disk a standard Microsoft Win98 installation cd or a Gateway cd?

Hi,

Before formatting your drive, were you experiencing system instability/crashes?

Seems hardware related to me, either overheating or flacky memory.

Make sure all fans are spinning within the system, especially the CPU fan and make sure it is well attached to the CPU.

Test your memory, see:

Hi,

Loading from an original Microsoft cd should not give you alot of errors! This is why I think it is hardware related. I am not familiar with the Gateway Backup cd, is it simply a copy of a Win98 installation cd or is it an actual recovery cd?

Is your system still under warranty?
Have your tried calling Gateway support? Maybe they came across this problem before and have a fix!
Again, before formatting your drive, were you experiencing system instability/crashes?
