Description:

When I start my computer I get the following Message:

The following file is missing or corrupted: c:\mtm\mtmCDAI.SYS
There is an error in your Config.sys file on Line 5

I have two of these folders first is in c:\ created 9/27/98

device=C: \WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS
device=C: \windows\emm386.exe ram
FILES=50
dos=high,umb
DEVICEhigh=C: \MTM\MTMCDAI.SYS /D:MTMIDE01

The other is in C:\Failsafe.DRV created 5/25/98

rem device=C:\WINDOWS\HIMEM.SYS
rem device=C:\windows\emm386.exe ram
rem FILES=50
rem dos=high,umb
rem DEVICEhigh=C:\MTM\MTMCDAI.SYS /D:MTMDE01
rem DEVICEHIGH=C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\DRVSPACE.SYS /MOVE
  

The problem I seem to be having is with color being incorrect especially when my kids are games thru the CD Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

The Answer

The error in your config.sys file is referring to the DOS CD ROM drivers.  The system isnt able to find your DOS based CD ROM drivers, which is OK because Windows 95 should handle it.  I see from the config.sys file that there is some memory managers being loaded which Windows 95 should be handling.  Unless you run programs out of DOS, you should let Windows 95 handle the memory managing.  You need to rename 2 files.  Rename C:\autoexec.bat to C:\autoexec.old and rename C:\config.sys to C:\config.old and reboot the system.  This will disable all the DOS drivers that load before Windows 95 which could be causing the problems.  If after you rename them you find that one of your DOS based programs doesn't work properly, just rename them back to their original names and reboot.  If you have to do that, list the contents of both files and submit them back to us and we will optimize them.

The problem with colors may also be with the color depth you have your video adapter set to.  Refer to this document for help.  Changing Display Colors
