View Full Version : Win 95 start-up

After a crash, the only way I can get Win 95 to run is to do F8 and a Step by Step leaving out the line DOS=single. Cannot find a file where I can edit this out. The only file I can find with DOS=single in is Config.dos and rem-ing the line or moving the file makes no differance.

hi there
Check out this web site.

If the computer crashes you refer to are caused by running a DOS based application this makes complete sense.

I have a feeling that the 'rem' for Config.sys is the semicolon character ';'.

What does 'DOS=single' do?

Hi Cam and Graham, many thanks for your input.
The techsupport site is great. It explains it well and the DOS loop was me to a T
