My neighbour has asked me to look at her PC. It is an old Packhard Bell. It has worked perfectly for years. She turned on this morning, and I have three times, It goes through the booting procedure and everything appears to be loading then before the splash screen starts she gets a black screen with the curser flashing on a C:\ prompt. Any ideas please.? I know she has not done anything (she even calls me to save her e-mails.

Sounds like a file is corrupt or deleted. Are you able to boot into safe mode?

cannot get into safe mode. I did a Sys C: with the boot floppy and got the system transferred message

Also when you get to that screen try typing

win and press enter.

Tell us what happens.

pj123. I cannot tell you how many times you have helped me in the past (often without you even knowing). I did as you said, one click and it is up and running. Thank you veryy much.
mattyc_92: Thank you also for your trouble. (God I love this Forum)
