Hi all, i have a little PC which is stuck at startup on this error message.
There is an unrecognised command in your CONFIG.SYS file
There is an error in your CONFIG.SYS file on line 1.
Any ideas greatly appreciated, G

Win 95, it was to be upgraded by the previous owner to 98 thats where things went a little haywire, but i want to fix it to give it away.

thanks guys will give VoG a try, the error starts at startup so no command is being entered prior to the message showing up.

I press F* go to enter, and then it says Windows is bypassing your startup files, then it halts and a "C:// command prompt appears??
