Question about NEC PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have an nec versa laptop 2003. I went to turn it on last night and it went to a black screen saying it couldn't detect system32/windows or it was corrupt (or words to that effect) and to try and fix it I could put in the original start-up disc then press 'r' for repair at the first screen. When I put the disc in it didn't do anything, the original message just stayed there.

My daughter was working on her laptop last night and she said it wasnt working right so she shut it off and when she turned it back on the screen was black - I tried the f2 key last night trying to get it...

CPU more than likely went bad because of overheat. Its not worth fixing unless you KNOW you can do it yourself Laptops are a nightmare to work on
Just a suggestion but laptops are for people who MUST carry their PCs around. The do not have a long lifespan. Desktops are much more durable

Start up problem with my IBM thinkpad windows XP

type f8 at startup and try last known configuration. if that doesnt work then safe mode. If that doesnt work then try to find a duplicate file (backup), try to find file with dos console - go to windows/system32 and type dir ntoskrnl*.*   so youll find out if there was maybe a copy of this file.  IF you HAVE a Fast PC then sometimes its easier to install a fresh copy of windows, then to search for such errors.
