I switched on my monitor this morning to find my computer displaying a Dos screen, which I will type in full below, the worrying thing I found was though at the top of the screen it says ' Microsoft Windows 98 Startup Menu '. Now this computer was originally loaded with Windows 98, but at least a year ago we chaged it to XP???
Anyways, below is exactly what the screen says:
Microsoft Windows 98 Startup Menu
2. Logged (\BOOTLOG.TXT)
3. Safe mode
4. Step-by-step confirmation
5. Command prompt only
6. Safe mode command prompt only
Enter a choice Time Remaining
Waring: Windows has detected a registry/configuration error.
Choose, Command prompt only, and run Scanreg
The following file is missing or corrupted: C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS
The following file is missing or corrupted: C:\WINDOWS\DBLBUFF.SYS
The following file is missing or corrupted: C:\WINDOWS\IFSHLP.SYS
The following file is missing or corrupted: COMMAND.COM
Type the name of the Command Iterpreter (e.g., C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND.COM)
Thats the lot, I haven't a clue what to do, so any help will be greatfully appreciated. I have the disks for Windows 98 Recovery and Windows XP.
I hope someone can help... :-(
