Hp Omnibook 800CT

I have Hp Omnibook 800CT Version 2.01.00. It runs Windows 95, but I cannot get Windows 95 to start.It comes up with a message 'while initializing device Shell, cannot find or load required file Krnl386.exe'. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks. (I thought I would reload Windows 95 from recovery CD, but I cannot find it?

Re: Hp Omnibook 800CT

Ahhhh! Win95 and Krnl386.exe errors; what fond memories! You need to reinstall Win95. Do a scandisk (from DOS) and delete all your temp files before reinstalling. If you don't have a "temp" variable run the following commands from DOS then do a reinstall.

del c:\*.tmp
del c:\windows\*.tmp
del c:\windows\temp\*.tmp

If you get a "file not found" its O.K.
If it don't stink don't stir it.
