When I switch on my computer, the computer displays the message "Windows95 cannot determine which configuration you are using please choose one from the following: 1.original configuration 2.backup 3 none of the above"
Can any one tell me how to solve this problem?
Also, which config.sys and autoexec.bat is win95 actually using? It semms that win95 do not use c:\config.sys and c:\autoexec.bat

Win95 will use config.sys and autoexec.bat if they are there.  But these files are not needed.  You might try renaming the config.sys and autoexec.bat files and see if you problem still occurs when you boot up.

Hello !
When you boot, this message comes on your screen because in the properties of the "my computer" icon, in the HARDWARE PROFILE TAB, you have probably copy the original configuration and rename it with "Backup".

Just delete this Backup file and reboot. It won't bother you anymore.

Regards and good luck

Win95 uses config.sys and autoexec.bat when booting using it. When booting to previous MS-DOS these files end with .w40

It is in the System Properties under control panel, not 'My Computer'  Then under Hardware profiles tab.  Then you can delete the backup configuration.
