Question about Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop
When I start up my computer I see that it says in the top left and corner invalid boot file ini . How do I fix this ? I don't have a CD
Unfortunately, you are going to need to have a Windows Disk to run a Repair Install from the disk. If running a repair install does not resolve the boot.ini error you will need to format and reinstall Windows.
To get a Windows disk you can search the internet for a disk. If you are in the US you can try getting a disk from the link below.

This is what the boot.ini file should look like. Use U'r recovery disk to create or edit the ini file as above. U cannot use DOS 6.22 to create this file if U'r system is formated in NTFS.
If U don't have a recovery disk, make one from someone else's XP computer (DOS 7.xx).

You may need to install memory in matching pairs. If the new memory is a single 1Gb module and you didn't already have a similar one they may not work together. Try removing the original module(s) and see if it makes a difference.

if you have another computer to use you can look for the Ultimate Boot CD and burn a copy then boot to that. this will help you recover your data. there are also boot edit tools on that cd and you may be able to edit your boot.ini to fix the issue.
the only other way is to get a windows cd and use advanced repair to fix and rebuild the bootcfg
