I have an old pc that will only start in safe mode due to the config.sys being corrupted, also there does not seem to be anything in the autoexec.bat file. can anyone help?

As a bare minimum, try these (edited versions of my own):

autoexec.bat

mode con codepage prepare=((850 C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\ega.cpi)

mode con codepage select=850

keyb uk,,C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\keyboard.sys

config.sys

DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS

DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE

device=C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\display.sys con=(ega,,1)

Country=044,850,C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\country.sys

They both go in the C:\ root directory. (You do not need to double space them.)

Sorry, first line of autoexec.bat should read:

mode con codepage prepare=((850) C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\ega.cpi)
