Here's how to fix this problem:

1. Boot your computer from your Windows installation CD.
2. Select 'R' for the recovery console and log on as administrator.
3. At the command prompt type the following:

EXPAND -R D:\I386\c_437.nl_ C:\WINDOWS\system32\c_437.nls

(If your CD drive is different than D: or your primary hard
drive/partition is other than C:, substitute the appropriate drive
letters.)

4. Select yes when you're prompted to overwrite the existing file.
5. Reboot the computer.



Depending on the level of file corruption, you may have to repeat this
process for another file. (I've had to repeat the process for
c_1252.nls as well.)

If it says it can't find teh file, 
Use this command instead: expand d:\i386\c_437.nl_ c:\windows\system32\

There is a space in front of c:\

\WINDOWS\system32\c_1252.nls


You didn't say which operating system. But this usually happens in XP. You have a corrupt start up file.The easiest way to fix this is to boot the machine from an XP cd. When it asks you if you want to install windows click enter. Hopefully it will show that there is an existing copy of windows. Then it will tell you to hit R if you want to repair the existing copy of windows. If you have succeeded this far it is pretty much automatic after that. The repair install will ask for the product code (on the MS COA sticker) Hope this helps!

Turn on computer- Wont boot Please Help!!!


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

type exit

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\

Error 437


Hi, I did a Google on your error 437 and it would seem that this problem pops up only if: 1. using SYMANTEC (Ghost); or 2. using Original Toshiba Restore Disc. where possibly: a. the restoration procedure needs to write a log file somewhere (A:?) which does not exist and therefore waits; b. the restore disc is probably corrupted; and/or c. the Ghost image is corrupted. A few things you can try: * On another computer, check the integrity of your recovery disc; * Get hold of another Windows installer and do a complete, clean, fresh install (you will have to use your original Win numbers @ the bottom of your laptop). You will only need the recovery disc for your hardware drivers; or * Call Toshiba Support and get assistance. I was made to understand that they provide replacement Recovery Disc (>50USD). Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
