Hi, at the moment i have a computer with pentium 75 and 32 ram along with microsoft windows 95 (second/97), but just then, after mistakenly deleted. So now, the computer won't even start into windows 'cos in can't. so i have gone into ms-dos and it goes:

C:\WINDOWS>

so my first question is what do i type so that i can change it to:

C:\>

then how do i change it to:

D:\>

(not just by typing d: after C:\> 'cos i've tried it and it doesn't work)

so that it is reading my cd-rom drive which will have the windows95 cd. after all this, what do i need to type/do in order to copy the system file i'm missing into the hard drive so that i can't use my system again. if this is not possible and i HAVE to format the whole drive, then how do i copy my important documents onto a floppy disk from 'my documents' I know this sound confusing but this is the best i can do to explain it, please ask for further details if needed. Many of you out there may know the solution but cannot be bothered to answer, so can i say please do answer 'cos i have many important files on this computer and hope to use it. Thanks a million in advance.

C:\WINDOWS>cd\

C:\>d:

D:\>setup

Just reinstall windows, and all of your documents will still be there.

If you used your start up disk to get to the c\windows dos prompt then your cd drive will be E: not D:
