Hi!! I have a Compaq Presario that a friend gave me a while back that used to work and start up..but it doesn't now and I haven't been on it in months. It keeps saying that: Windows could not


The "Win32 config" system folder and the files within it are crucial to the Windows Operating System's stability. If any of these files become damaged or corrupted, you likely receive error messages. Fortunately, Microsoft puts the files to repair these problems on the installation CD that comes with your operating system. The original install disk offers a quick way to repair the system. Damaged files are replaced in only a few minutes.

Insert your Windows CD into the computer drive. Restart your computer. On startup, look for the message, "Press any key to boot from CD" and press "Enter" on your keyboard. You should see the blue "Welcome to Setup" screen. Click "Enter" on the "Welcome to Setup" screen. Read the "Microsoft Software License Terms," then press "F8." Use your arrow keys, go down and select the Windows installation you want to repair. Press "R" for "Repair." Windows will now start to restore the Win32 System to your computer.

I have an advent netbook and when I turn it on all i get is 'bootmgr missing' ctrl,alt del to restart. If i press f11 im told to enter a password but i do not remember setting one. Is there any way...


You can try fixing the MBR if you have a spare windows disk handy.

  1. Put in the windows disk, then restart the computer
  2. If using a Windows XP disk, wait until the setup process starts and it asks if you want to install or enter recovery mode, press R to enter recovery mode. If you're using Windows 7, put in the CD, select your language and keyboard options, then select "Repair My Computer" on the bottom left.
  • XP: Press 1 then enter to select the windows installation. When it asks for the administrator password, type it if you know it. If you don't, it's probably blank, so just hit enter to go past this screen.
  • That will take you to a C: Prompt, at which you type fixmbr. That should solve your problem.
  • Windows 7: Select the OS (if none's listed, just select "next"), then click "Startup Repair". That should find/fix any startup problems. Try running it 3-4 times if it hasn't solved the problem, sometimes it takes multiple runs.
That should solve your problems, but if not the answer is to do a new installation, unfortunately. You can use the System Rescue CD to pull off any data that you need to save, then re-install the operating system and put your data back on.
