Solutions: Rolling back the registry may fix laptop
Q. I was running a virus scan on my IBM Thinkpad I-1200 (Windows 98) when it locked up. I had to shut it down. When I try to restart it, it gets to the Microsoft Windows 98 screen and just stops. I don't have the original disc for the software and only a CD-ROM drive. Is there anything I can do to get my machine going, or would I have to get a new copy of the software?
Roundtable, a computer discussion group, will meet at 2 p.m. today at South Holiday Branch Library, 4649 Mile Stretch Drive. For information, call (727) 939-2087.
