Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Morning! I have a SONY VGN-N110G pc. I purchased it on E-Bay and have been using it daily for months with no problem. All of a sudden I'm getting an error message that says: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM corrupt or missing! The pc did not come with any disks! I did try F8 and then "LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION"

    I was just beginning to draft my response to your problem prior to my previous "Clarification Request" post. Here's a primer snippet related to your problem:



    SYSTEM_DRIVE (typically C:)\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM is a file ("SYSTEM", with no extension) located where indicated. It is the actual SYSTEM hive of your Windows registry. It is essential for successful booting (let alone operation) of your Windows operating system.



    Also, just for the sake of clarity: You have already tried Windows boot screen "LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION" option AND got no success?

    Repair is certainly a viable option. However, please don't do anything until you answer these three questions:


    1. Are you Windows XP or Vista?

    2. Do you have your Windows installation disk?

    3. Did you have "Windows Restore" turned on, with at least one restore point captured, before your boot failure?

    If the answer to 2 and 3 is "yes", please post again with these answers as there's a recovery method available to you that will allow you to restore your PC to a point as current as your last restore point.



    BENEFITS:


    1. No need to go thru the drudgery and insecurity of re-patching Windows.

    2. MUCH later and current Windows registry values associated with all your installed applications.

To be honest this still sounds like a fan problem. The freeze will happen if the laptop overheats. Maybe you should have it repaired again by a different company.(ask for the fan to be replaced!)
