    Hi

    My mate has a old computer with windows 95 as the operating system.
    Unfortunately, due to a meddling child:rolleyes:
    it will no longer boot up, it gets as far as :-

    Starting windows 95, then the following appears:-

    The following file is missing or corrupt -

    :c:\sample.sys
    There is an error in your config.sys file on line 1

    c:\>rem-by windows setup
    - mscdex.exe/d: oemcd001/l:d
    c:\>path
    c:\>bitware|

    From this point on nothing seems to get it up and running.

    Any advice on where to go from here....please:)

    Boot the machine from a Windows 95 or WIndows 98 Startup Disk and take it from there.
