a couple weeks ago i bought a laptop from my friend and it worked great. then one night my brother used it and started deleting files on it that he had no idea what thay were for and now my computer does not work at all.. when i start it up i get the compaq screen and i used to see the windows 98 screen and then 3 error messages popped up now all it does is shows the compaq screen then a error message pops up that says operating system not found.. i was wondering how i could fix my computer i have no reboot disk or anything. is there a way i can reboot my computer with out the disk or how i could get or download one and burn it to a cd.. i dont know what he deleted or anything but my computer does not work can someone help me please..
is to hand it to your brother and tell hime to get it sorted- at his own expense. The linux ides is a good one though software available is is not a reat as MS based stuff it is sufficient. Any Branch of WH Smith - pick up a Linux mag with a DVD of a Linux version on it- and go from there And your brother pays
Really it is your brothers problem. But as it appears he does not know what he is doing it would look like you are going nowhere fast. I appears it is an older machine - Windows 98 So you will need someone with that software, and know how to sort it. Do you know any one near by? It wont be a shop job I feel ,but one for an enthusiasts like one of us. So what area are you situated? And if some one on here happens to be nearby and is prepared to take it on and, you have the means to get it to them- personally- not by a carrier You may start getting somewhere Over to you
