      The only option to try for Win 9X,insert the start up disk in A:drive,boot computer and choose to Run setup without CD-ROM support,this will reload the System files on the computer,after the process is complete,eject the disk and reboot computer.
      If there is no startup disk create another one from similar machine

      You can bot into DOS Command Prompt, change to Win dir and type ‘scanreg /restore’ w/o the quote. The scanreg will list out the last known good registry config and choose the previous registry that is supposed to work and click on Restore. your registry will restore your drivers and registry and later reboot. Your computer should be back to previous working state.
