and another thing, I'm confused whether drive "A" or "C" is the
virtual ram drive because if I use either, they both work as command lines, so might there be two ram drives?
NOTE: drive A is the floppy drive, but it is not in use, I never use it,nothing is inside the floppy drive.

do you think buying a new western digital caviar 30GB hard
drive for $15 should fix the problem? because I heard they
come formatted and partitioned so I can readily install an
operating system (OS). the computer hardware store is right around my corner, literally.
oh and one more thing, everything else like the 128MB ram is ok.
INTERESTING POINTLESS NOTE:
I paid $20 to buy the computer I'm fixing, LOL. I got it because I wanted to practice fixing this type of problem, this is the most common problem with some peoples' computers when they reformat their hard drive.
