PDS or USEA Loop

(When the computer keeps going into the program instead of Windows)

 

 

You need to go into Safe Mode by either tapping the F8 key (Win95/98) or hold the <Ctrl> down (Win98 only) when the computer starts up. This will bring up the Windows Start Menu where you can choose to go into Safe Mode.

 

Once in Safe Mode, click on <Start> then <Run> and type sysedit and click on <OK>. This will bring up your system files: the autoexec.bat, the config.sys, etc.

 

Go to the autoexec.bat. Delete the following lines:

 

SET TMP=C:\WINDOWS\TEMP

SET TEMP=C:\WINDOWS\TEMP

SET winbootdir=C:\WINDOWS

SET PATH=C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND

SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 T4

Also delete any line that starts with REM

C:

Cd\pds (or usea)

Call use2800 (or use.exe)

C:\windows\win.com X

 

Basically delete all lines except for:

 

@ Echo off

prompt $p$g

 

Go to the config.sys. Delete the following line:

 

DOS=Single

 

Then Save the files and restart the computer. Windows should load normally.
