    I am running windows xp. When i run ipconfig it flashes off the screen before I get a chance to read it.
    I clicked run - then typed cmd and got to the dos screen - then I typed ipconfig and the screen flashes off so fast I do not get a chance to read it - how do I get the dos screen to stay on?? Remember I first went to run then typed cmd then at the dos screen I typed ipconfig.

    I researching this problem all I get is that I should click run then type cmd then type ipconfig - I did all that but screen still flashes off.

    are you typing ipconfig into the cmd window at the > prompt?

    the only way I can replicate what you describe is when typing ipconfig in the run box.

    copy and paste this into your Run box
    cmd /k ipconfig /all
