Hello,

When the computer first boots you can try to hit the F8 key and select the command prompt. Type in chkdsk and let that run. It may fix the corrupted file for you. Hope this helps....

Following files missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system


Well this means one of important files needed to start Windows is corrupted (it's a registry file).
I'd recommend repairing Windows installation. If you have Windows XP and also the Original Windows CD follow: this guide.

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

My computer turns on but appears to say one thing for computer repair and also appears advisable to start normally. already loaded on both, not by anything. I wonder how to turn it


Go to start if you can boot up. And then select run...type in chkdsk in the run window and hit enter. You computer will scan your hard drives for missing files and/or damaged files and fix it for you. Let me know if this helps.

Please help! Acer Aspire one, mod No ZG5, will not start windows. Missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system 32\hal.dll. Please reinstall a copy of the above file. But it came with no disk ???


You need to reinstall windows, I think. You can also try to use yhe Recovery console to recover the selected file ( in your case hal.dll). But for that you have to get the windows installation cd/dvd first.

Have gone to black!


The error: Window could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt;
WINDOWS\SYSEM32\config\system

You can attempt to repair this file by loading the Win CD into your cdrom drive. Start the PC & press the F5 key every 2 seconds & windows boot menue will load.
Choose the cdrom drive that has the Windows CD in.

Select "r" at the first screen to start repair.
Once back in windows run a full system virus scan.

Good luck & have a great day!
