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.

I can use my Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop says that windows could not start because the following files is missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system


You'll need a operating system disk or repair disk to run the check disk utility.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

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?
