    Windows Problem!

    I know it a not Oracle question, but need your help real bad!

    On my windows machine crashed this morning. Now when restart it, looks like it startup fine, but it drops me to DOS prompt.There isn't just DOS window anymore, it's as if I booted-up in MS-DOS mode. The whole screen goes black with a c: prompt on the screen.

    My question is, how can I start my desktop or my regular windows for the DOS prompt?

    I hven't change anything that could couse this problem. Any idea on fixing this problem and also what are the permanent solution to this.

    Thanks

    Try chaning the directory to c:\windows (or wherever your windows OS is located) and typing win at the C prompt

    c:\windows> win

    This hopefully will bring up windows desktop.

    If you are desperate, reinstall windows in a different directory and reinstall all application, this way you preserve your data. From experience you can spend hours trying to troubleshoot a problem only to reload the OS in the end. Cut your losses in none of the suggestions work and you can't find a fix @ Microsoft
