I hooked it up, plugged it in and on the glowing green screen it says:
COMPAQ Personal Computer DOS Version 3.31
While I may be almost older than dirt, over the years I've become a Windows addict, and have forgotten what little I knew about using DOS.
The only thing I could remember was dir/w for a directory. It shows the 31 files. including the program I need to access, but I can't remember the syntax or format to start the program. I remember that the commands have to have the spaces, slashes, etc. in exactly the right sequence or you get nowhere.......just the "invalid command" message and the C prompt again and again..... tried typing C:> stupiddamncomputer but that doesn't work no matter where you put the backslash.
Hoping that someone can point me in the right direction with this issue.
