Console problem

Hello, I do have a small problem with my console. Until yesterday, the console was in this form - "something@something something" but now it is like - "bash-2.05$" I know that I messed it up but is there any way how to get it back? I know, stupid question....

Thanks anyway.

Thanks dorward for help. But i solve the problem by different way (easier for me). I could change the console settings without problem but I could not save i to stay like thatt. So I created another user, copy his .bash_profile and .bashrc to my /home folder and delete that user which I just created. I little bit complicated but it works. Life is strange.... :-)

Have fun !
