My brothers ex-wife gave me her old laptop....however when cleaning out files she accidentally deleted a file that was needed to start up the laptop...so basically i power it up and i get to look at a DOS screen....i dont know much about laptops, or fooling around in DOS....but i know that somehow i need to either retrieve that file, or reinstall my whole windows...
can someone tell me how?? i really dont want to reinstall everything, since its an older laptop with no cd-rom drive :/
If it's WIN9X and a copy of the CAB files and setup program have been copied to the hard disk, you could consider that you may be able use this to re-install using the hard disk copy without needing to put in the original Windows CD.
well that could work....ill try that tonight....however if it doesnt work than id need an original copy of the windows to re-install?
there isnt a cdrom drive though. where/how can i get one if that is what ill need to do eventually?
