DOS 95....? Need disk.
    #1871556 - 09/01/03 05:00 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Long story short:

I upgraded my windows 95 laptop with windows 98, the screen view shrinked to half size so I uninstalled windows 98.

Now upon boot up it says:

"You started your computer with a version of MS_DOS incompatible with this version of windows. Insert a startup disk matching this version of window and then restart.

The system has been halted. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart your computer."

What the fuck do I do? I have no startup disk.

I did that, but then everything looked "blocky" like a screen made from legos.
