A friend of mine decided to delete some stuff off her computer and deleted some stuff that was needed to run her computer. I don't know alot about computers but anyway she decided to leave it in my hands to try and fix.

When she deleted what she did the computer would only start in ms dos mode and wouldn't load windows. Now it won't even load at the c: prompt and everytime I start it it goes to compaq utilities and won't go to the prompt. I know the steps to get windows back but I need to get it back to ms dos mode. I have tried f8, f5 etc but just doesn't seem to work.

Please if you think you may be able to help me I would be really greatful.

Thanks

Download a boot disk from www.bootdisk.com
Go into the BIOS and change the boot order to Floppy 1st, Hard drive 2nd. Insert the boot floppy and reboot. You can now reinstall the Windows CD from the command prompt.
