A few days ago I received the following error message on startup:
"Windows has detected registry/configuration error, choose, command prompt only and run SCANREG
The following file is missing or corrupted C:Windows\Himem.Sys
The following file is missing or corrupted C:Windows\DBLBUFF.Sys
The following file is missing or corrupted C:Windows\FSHLP.Sys
Cannot find Win.Com, unable to continue to loan Windows
I found a recovery disk which came with the system years ago and followed the instructions for use ie boot with floppy in, select option 1, remove floppy, reboot, if not working , try option 2 and so on, however, after trying option 1 and rebooting, I just get a blank screen with a flashing cursor in the top left hand corner.
The PC beeps if I press any key and Caps Lock / Num Lock work.
I don't have a copy Win 98 media.
Any Ideas on how I can resolve this?
