When I turn on my computer I have to type in "win" as the c: prompt comes up now and this is what I have to do do get windows to load. Can you tell me how to put the command in there so I don't have to type it in? Also I was going to reinstall my windows 95 when I was getting all them error messages and when I put my windows 95 setup boot disk in the a: drive and turned on the computer it didn't do anything, it just loaded normally as if I didn't have it in there at all. I looked on the floppy and there is files in there. Any ideas why my computer isn't finding this. I put the disk in and turn on computer like it says to do. I don't know what the deal is. Can you help? Thanks for your help on this matter.I only have 40 points to offer, I am sorry, wished I had more to offer.

First problem:

You may need to edit your MSDOS.SYS file.  There should be a line that says BootGUI=1.  There are instructions here:

Second problem:

Check your BIOS.  Make sure the boot order is set to A:, then CD-ROM (if available), then C.  If you don't know how to get into your BIOS, look at your computer as it boots.  It will say "Press F1 to enter setup" or "Press F10..." etc.
