my friend has an old compaq presario computer, a good 8-10 years old i believe, and when he boots it up the loading screen says Windows 94. i really don't know whats going on because i didn't think there was a windows 94?

sorry if this is weird i just thought that windows 94 was a fake name for windows 95 and that it was supposed to ship in 94.

unless he's got some kinda beta version
your friend prob just changed the boot screen
win95 was suppost to come out in 94 but was delayed.
if you want to know for sure check. Right click on "my computer"
then click properties it will say what it is.
unless of course he changed that too.

You're right, there was no Windows 94. What you have is just a fake boot screen someone made, they used to be very poplular. The boot logo is just a bitmap image named logo.sys and located in your root directory. If you want the real Windows 95 boot screen back just rename or delete this file. You can also download a different logo, just search Google and you should find tons of them. Here's an example:
