Trying to fix a PC for a friend. Its kinda old but its a XP system worth saving for something. Any way booted it up and XP tries to boot but can't...(I do see the XP screen with the blue streamer) set up and sends the monitor into hibernation. Tried safe mode no luck. Changed the bios to let it boot from a boot disk i got offline from Free Boot Disk. Once I did that, it starts to boot and goes into this DOS window and starts asking me for commands like A:\_ what does all that mean. I just wanted the computer to start up so I can reinstalled XP...lol. I know beat me up for being so naive. I can save this computer if I can get it open again can someone help me.
