    I posted this in "Hardware", which might be the wrong place, so here it is:

    I resurrected a Dell 8200 and it was working fine until I tried to connect a ViewSonic 23" monitor. Suddenly I got the "plug and play configuration error, strike f1 or f2, etc." Can't make heads or tails out of it so I powered off then back on then hit f12 when the Dell logo came up. I am now at the DOS prompt as I'm sure something can be done from here. Anybody have a recipe I can follow to get this thing booted up? I really need this old machine to work as it is the only computer I have that will talk to my Konica Minolta color laser printer, but that's the subject for another thread.

    I cannot download TSG SysInfo on a computer that won't boot. :(
