Can someone please help me. My computer is stuck in Dos mode and I have tried everything to get to windows and nothing seems to help me.
I tried scan\reg and anything else i can think of including using the CD and it still isn't working. Any suggestions.

Restart your pc then press and hold down the CTRL key while its starting - until the Windows 98 Startup menu appears, then choose Normal Mode from the menu by using the up and down arrows on your keyboard or press the corresponding numbers from your numeric keys

Did you try to restore older copy of registry this way?

Start>shutdown. Restart Ms-dos.
Type scanreg/restore at the prompt> hit enter> Select an older copy of the registry and reboot.
