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:\

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.

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\
