I hope you are all doing well. I'm having a problem with an old computer, it's windows 98 OS.
It's not loading windows and I can't get the cd drive working to get the windows start up cd to load.
I'm afraid there is a problem with the c: drive letter name or something , I did get a warning saying something about that.
I'm not 100% computer-stupid, but I'm more of a violinist, to be honest.
I can get the floppy drive (!) to load, and the windows start up floppy does load the diagnostics , but I get the DOS A: drive and it won't let me run setup in DOS,
It won't start up in safe mode, or any windows mode.
There's nothing mission critical on the computer, just some old pictures and files, but I'd like to get some few things back if possible.
No worries on the help. I appreciate anything and thanks a lot in advance .
Edit: tried to run autoexec from the A drive, it tries to start the computer but goes back to A: drive / dos command line.
Could there be a partition problem with the c drive ?
