Thumbs down

I typed win at the C:\> and I get Bad Command or File Name

I'm sorry if I seemed pushy, I was just excited that this computer might work again. It worked when I brought it home and then I don't know what happened.....

And me?? I don't know what to do next? I've looked at other websites for help, but none are as understandable as this one.

Hi Audiotech....what other sites have you tried?
I finally got my 98 boot disk, and I don't think it works right. I don't see the computer assigning a letter to it like jaak said. I don't see the D or the E....Any clues?

I am defending Cyber Tech....they helped me...I had to get a blank disk and download Windows 98 and then use that disk plus my Windows95 CD to re-intall Windows....Worked just like they said it would....Okiegirl
