SOURCE: Missing or corrupted file C:\windows\himem.sys

This file is part of a batch file used in the boot up process of win 98 and Me. You can can search for a copy of the file in your pc by starting in DOS mode. To do this press F8 before the pc boots and select start in dos prompt. When you at the c:\prompt type in.... type sys.ini then press enter, see if himem.sys is part of the displayed text.Failing this do this:

To determine this, boot from a known good bootable floppy diskette. If you are able to successfully boot from a bootable diskette, it is likely the copy of the himem.sys on the hard disk drive is corrupt or missing or not setup properly in the config.sys.

If you are running Windows 95, Windows 98, type:
copy himem.sys c:\windows <press enter>
If when typing any of the above commands you receive a prompt that the file already exists, ensure to overwrite it.
Reboot the computer; if the issue continues to occur, verify that the config.sys is properly setup. The line himem.sys should read:
DEVICE=C:\Windows\HIMEM.SYS
or
DEVICE=C:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS

hope this helps?

Recovery partition cannot be found


If your Sony VAIO computer has been infected with a virus, its system files may be deleted or corrupted, which will cause system instability.


Depending on the type of virus or the specific files lost, you may not be able to manually fix the problem.


You can restore all of the system files back to their original condition and recover the operating system to its factory settings by using a hidden recovery partition on the VAIO


Click start control panel scroll to folder options view place a tick in show hidden files folders and drives.
This may vary depending on your operating system.



Close any programs that are currently open.

Transfer any files you want to keep from the Sony VAIO's hard drive to another source, such as a USB memory stick.


Disconnect any peripheral devices that are hooked up to the VAIO, such as a printer or network cable.

Open the "Start" menu and choose "Help and Support."


Click "Back Up & Recovery" and then navigate to "VAIO Recovery Center." Select "Launch VAIO Recovery Center."


Click "Restore Complete system" underneath the "Choose a Program" heading.

Click "OK" and follow the prompts to restore your Sony VAIO's system files back to their original condition.
