As the pc is booting press F2 or Del (dependant on bios) and enter bios set up.
Choose to make your cdrom as first boot device, save settings and exit bios.

Insert cd drive before the boot up starts and there will be a screen prompt to "press enter to boot from cd", press enter and then the cdrom will go to the next step, asking press 'R' to repair or press 'Enter' to format and install windows, choose repair if you have documents you need on your pc.

The system will then go through a full repair installation, when complete your system will be repaired and everything should be as before with nothing lost.

You may have a faulty hard drive so if you cannot get windows to repair it will tell you theres no drive found.

As soon as you power up your laptop, keep tapping F8 until another screen pops up. Select reinstall windows / restore factory settings (Should be an option to reset your computer back to factory settings)
Any data on your computer will be lost during this process.....
This will reinstall the windows you already have on your hard drive and will not require a disk.

Hope this helps and please rate, thanks

You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM

it is nothing but windows registry error. do one thing in another pc download the Hiren's boot cd from internet, write that file in a cd, try to boot from that cd & repair the registry. otherwise just format the operating system & reload the OS.

Compaq Presario 1700 PC Notebook Problem gives me a screen windows will not strat because file is corrupted or missing file is \windows\system32\config\system


Is this XP?
Do you have the XP cd or the recovery cd's. This needs to be fixed by performing a Windows repair.
missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system"means that the OS,XP, is missing an essential file to run.
Or it could mean that your hard drive is failing. Is the hard drive noisey?
