My husband's Compudyne Pentium computer has gone crazy. When I changed the display settings and re-booted, the screen went crazy. I then re-booted and looked at setup. Must have changed something-didn't do so on purpose-and the computer wouldn't start Windows 95. Keep asking for system disk, but won't accept what I had. I made a start-up disk for Windows from my computer. It now will show the message Starting Windows 95 but it stays in dos and gives a A: prompt. I tried hitting f8 and starting in safe mode but again it goes to A: prompt. I can get it to change to c drive, but I don't know the dos commands I need apparently. Tried starting in line by line comfirmation but after saying yes to first command I am right back at a: prompt. What do I do now? It has been too long since I used dos commands. I do have a copy of the original config.sys file but how do I get Windows to load. Is there something in setup I should change?
