Recently, my computer booted up normally, then went to black screen with the message "IO.SYS missing or bad/Insert startup disk/Press ENTER". I did so then got the message "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS START". I did so, hit ENTER, and my computer booted up, not to the disk, but to my normal startup screen. I subsequently learned that I did not even need the disk to boot up. I just hit ENTER at each message and it boots up fine. But I still get the messages each time I turn my computer on.

Can anyone tell me what's going on, why, and how to stop it?

Sounds weird. I'd just leave it, as long as you can use your computer. If it is really bugging you, I'm sure one of our more trained and expereienced members here can assisst you.
