Dos won't be able to use most of the hardware.

I've talked to a few guys who still maintain DOS programs what they do is install a DOS emulator in thier windows based system.

Here is a link to a page that has 5 emulators that are free. You may find lots of others as well. I don't know what you are looking for ie joystick, sound, graphics etc so I didn't try to find anything specific for you. Since these are free and probably lots of others I would grab them and try them out until you find one that covers what you want to do. The X128 one runs under XP and Vista so it might be one to start with.

Using an emulator will let you use a normal windows setup and let you develop your DOS stuff on the same machine without trying to solve how to get dos to read hard drives etc.

The best way to do this is probably use windows and run dosbox for windows. What it does is it emulates DOS and lets you run any program that requires dos. Because your computer doesnt have a LPT port. and nowadays only drivers for dos or newer operating systems come with the card. installing the driver in windows then running dosbox, it will see the LPT port.

you can get it here

My computer is stuck at the blue HP logo when I power on will not move forward to give me bios options nor does pressing F8 F10 F2 etc. work. Please Help?


Run the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

My computer is a HP compaq dc 7900. It doesn't start. It keeps on showint NTLDR is missing. What can I do to fix the mess ?


NTLDR is the small program that launches the kernel - the core of Windows. Without it nothing will work. If you have a Windows XP retail install disk you could do a Repair install - that would put back the NTLDR file. If you have just an recovery disk then the only way to fix your problem is to fully reinstall Windows using that disk. That will wipe everything so if you need to recover your files before wiping use a Linux Live-cd to copy them. One like

I need to download a program that requires windows and my computer says the program wont run in dos mode how do i get it to work?


if the program requires windows that means it was design to work with windows and not with DOS.. you may want to get an old version of the program that will actually run under DOS.. usually you may be able to do the opposite which is to run DOS program on windows.

if possible try to get a DOS version of the program you are trying to run, or better.. upgrade your operating sytem so you can run your program and possibly other DOS programs.

post the program you are looking to download and confirm what operation system you're running and I'll try to look for it with you.

Installation problem


Replace the hard drive with a new one. IT takes a standard IDE 2.6" laptop drive - I would try newegg.com they have pretty good prices probably about $100 for a 120gb drive.

The hard drive is under the 3x4" cover on the bottomn of the machine.
