    Default compaq presario computer windows98

    I'm trying to get online with my computer. My mycomputer is lost and I can't get the recovery system disk to work to restore it. Is there any other way to restore it within my computer? I'm pressed for time due to needing a web site completed for a project.

    Sincerely,

    Veronica Coleman

    Hi
    does the PC boot up at all if so have you tried scanreg/restore
    You can try scanreg/restore when in safe-mode go to Command Prompt Only at the C: prompt, type scanreg /restore and press Enter
    You should have a choice of registry backups from the last five days the system successfully booted. select a copy of the registry to replace the current registry Click a registry entry that has the word "Started" next to the date, and then press Enter. to get to safe mode tap the F8 Key as your PC is booting up





    If that does not work try scanreg/fix
    this time at the prompt type in scanreg/fix after a short delay you will see a message that registry has been repaired press enter and when the c:\windows prompt appears again type in scanreg/opt after a short delay the prompt appears again to get back to windows type exit

    Regards Stoney
