        Elaine,

        You do not state what version of Windows you are using. Sounds like
you might have a corrupt Autoexec.bat or Config.Sys file. If you're using
Win98, then type "MSCONFIG" in the Start / Run  Box and disable these two
files.

        What Soundcard are you using? I seem to remember that the
SoundBlaster Live Value! card calls for DOS emulation. This can also be
removed in either the Config or Autoexec files, I forget offhand which. If
this is the case, simply place a "rem" before the relevant line in the
Autoexec.bat file, or a ";" (semi-colon) before the relevant line in
Config.sys.

        In all cases above, ignore the "" marks when entering the command.

          Any one know how I can solve this

          I turn on the comp, after the pci listings I get a message saying
"cannot load DOS!" Press any key ...
          and then the machine restarts.  The system searches the disk about
1-2 minutes but then the message appears again.

          I have gone into the bios and told the computer to boot from IDE-O
which it dose and windows starts up

          Any ideas

          Elaine
