I have minimal information, my computer is stuck on the DOS prompt, so it is not loading.

I run window vista, with Service packs 1 and 2. It is a zt system. I was having a problem closing a free burning program. It would not close even through task manager. Tried to restart the computer and when it restarted I had the DOS prompt. My computer did not come with a disk to reload windows. So I am at a loss as to what to do.

When you restart it try to hit F8 several times to see if you can get to safe mode.
It sounds like it could be starting in debug mode or something similar.
Pleas post the full specs of you computer as well and we will see what can be done.

And please never never post a phone number on a open forum.

I solved this with the help of a friend. Luckily, I had the Vista DVD, and reinstalled Windows. I appreciate your help. I wish I had read the advice about F8, before I reinstalled. Thank you again. This is a great forum. You guys have helped me a lot of times.
