GUEST,Stilly River Sage Tech: crashed pc (13) RE: Tech: crashed pc 15 Feb 05


It was one of those moments when a little voice, long unheard from, said "try DOS," even though I haven't used it in so long that I'd have to do some thinking about it and find a list of commands. Remember the good old days when you were writing little DOS batch files to help start your computer faster or end up where you wanted it once it was on? It is a powerful program, when you can find it. And it's still in the background of these computers. I had to call a Dell tech when we bought my kids' their computer a year and a half ago. At one point in the troubleshooting she told me what keystrokes to do to come up with the DOS screen and run a command. It was a pleasant surprise, even if the skills are so rusty as to be nonexistant.
