Recently my dad bought an Armada m700 notebook computer. Last night he decided to clear off some things, and apparently deleted some necessary files. Now we can't start up the computer, reformat, install windows... basically anything.
When you press the ON button, it comes up on a black screen displaying this message:
Type the name of the Command Interpreter (eg., C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND.COM)
Could someone please help us out.
Thanks a lot,

This is what the c:\boot.ini file looks like on my M700:
You can try telling it:
when it asks for the Command Interpreter but probably he's killed too much off.
I'd go into the BIOS setup (I think you have to hit F10 after restarting it usually about the time the little cursor appears in the upper right of the screen.) and set the boot order to boot from a CD first then you should be able to get it to reload from the Windows CDROM.

If you tell me the OS I can send you the COMMAND.COM correct for your system. 98 and 95 use the same command.com usually located in C:\COMMAND.COM
Hope This info Helps
