Question about HP Compaq Presario 6310US (DA201A#ABA) PC Desktop
I turn on my computer and it goes to a screen saying that a certain file is missing or corrupt : \WINDOWS\Systems\c_437.nls
and to put in the original setup disc press r when the first screen comes up to go into repair mode. Is there anyway to bypass using the disc because i dont have one?
Borrow an XP install disk from anyone. Since you are not installing a new copy you don't need a keycode or serial number.
I am willing to bet however that you are going to need to do a re-install having lost this file to corruption. The source of the corruption is the unseen elephant in the room. Be aware that if you can get the computer running move any personal files to new new folder on the C drive. One that you create and not in 'My Documents' or any other windows created folder. When re-installing windows any/all windows folders are deleted and new, empty ones are created resulting in your loss of everything.
1. Boot the laptop;
2. press F12 to go to boot menu;
3. Selected CD/DVD-RW Drive;
4. Press any key to boot to CD; worked fine...
5. Press R to repair;
6. At the recovery console, selected 1: C:\WINDOWS and hit enter;
7. This brought me to C:\WINDOWS> prompt;
8. Typed this C:\WINDOWS> EXPAND -R D:\I386\c_437.nl_ C:\WINDOWS\system32\c_437.nls
9. And got the error message: The parameter is not valid. Try /? for help.
IF the disk is in the D drive then use this command instead: expand d:\i386\c_437.nl_ c:\windows\system32\
