    when starting up windows 98 se it doesnt have the scrolling bar at the bottom or doesnt say windows 98 with the picture, instead when its booting up it only has a flashing white underscore and eventually it boots to the desktop. how can you get the Bootscreen back?

    It sounds like your MSDOS.SYS file is missing the logo command. Not too difficult to fix.

    Open your MSDOS.SYS file

    [b]Start > Find > Files or Folders... > "Named" msdos.sys

    and then find the line that says "Logo". This should be followed by a "1". If it is followed by a "0", that is your problem. If this line is missing you will need to add it.

    Again your MSDOS.SYS file may look like:


    It should look like:


    Then click save, and reboot the computer.

    Let us know if this helped.
