About 2 years ago, I started up my old Toshiba Tecra laptop (Win 95), and on the black startup screen, it came up with 'Resume Failure'.

I have tried to re-install windows, but the external CDrom is not working.

I have a Floppy disk drive with a win 98 boot disk.

Can n e 1 hlp me??

thx

Tom

I could do, but I'd rather not.

I'm getting a C:\ prompt, is there anything I can put in there to load up Windows??

Get (buy or borrow) an external CDrom which works for your laptop is possibly the only solution unless you can get some network guru with a lot of hardware/software to help you.

One possible solution, install DOS get some files transfer program (such as old version of laplink), link laptop to another pc, transfer the content of win98 cd to you laptop hd by link print ports of your machine with anoth pc with CD ROM then start to install using win98 start up disk.
