Question about Compaq Presario 1700 Notebook
I get a compaq screen then goes to a black screen stating"windows will not strat because file is missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system Any key i press takes it back to compaq screen then same message screen again. Now the screens going white as if too much running at one time ?
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?
