If you are running DOS 6.0 or above. Reboot the system and then hist F5 or F8 not exactly sure on which one since I havent used DOS in a while but one of them will ByPass the config.sys and autoexec.bat and the other will do a step by step on them meaning you can go through the loading of DOS step by step and find the exact location fo the problem. After you find what is hanging up the boot process rem that out of the config.sys or autoexec.bat and re install whatever that line relates to. One of the lines in the config.sys or the autoexec.bat is making a call to a problem somewhere.
