Okay so I needed a cheap computer for work so I went to this yardsale and they had it set up there and it worked and everything. Well I get it home and hook it up and it still works but she had all of her stuff still on it so she had given me the recovery disk with it. So I was going to just reboot from its orginial factory. Well I THINK I've gotten everything of it because as it says put in the windows cd I put it and it restarts itself and then it says cannot find WIN.COM, unable to cntinue loading Windows. I have no idea what to do. I've tried turning off the computer and restarting the recovery disk and everything. No matter what that ends up coming up. I need help PLEASE!
