Run diagnostics on the system, see if a hardware failure is detected (Hard drive is most suspect)

If you cannot run diagnostics, see if you can boot to your windows XP cd go to recovery console and run CHKDSK /R

as a last resort reinstall Windows

Have an IBM A31 Thinkpad. Purchased used. Have Windows/Systems32/Config/ System missing or corrupt message. I do not have the original System Set CD-ROM. I have no work on the computer that I need


The hardware specs for this machine will not handle anything later than Windows XP. I would recommend doing a clean installation of XP or even might try a free operating system like Ubuntu (http://www.ubuntu.com/). Just have to download the iso and get it burned to a disc. All in all, I would recommend a machine with better specs to provide an all around better working computer. Hope this helps.

you need bootable windows disk or recovery disk.
Then set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios then go to boot option then save settings.
thenh put cd in cd /dvd rom then it boot with disk.
Then it load some file wait for 5-7 minutes then it gives screen then press enter.

If you have reformatted the hard drive there's no windows there at the c partition anymore for you to boot into. If so, read about format and reinstall on google.

Missing or corrupt


HI,

You canrecovery the MIssing file, by installing the OS
Don't go for installation ,give Repair the option
when you boot up the Lpatop,
press either F2 or Del, this will get you into the cmos settings, navigate to advanced cmos settings and normally at the top line is the boot sequence which will say HDD, press either up/down keys or + - keys to change to cdrom as first boot device, save settings and exit.
Insert you cd rom before the system boots into windows and the option prompting you to press enter to boot from cd will appear for 30seconds.
ok---enter---repair-- in this option it will recover the missing files.

It won't boot


Hello maybelle,

Your system is corrupted, files needed to boot up windows was corrupt or it was deleted accidentally, the only solution that can correct the problem is provide installation disc(windows installer) and insert it to the CD ROM and boot your system to CD DOM and follow the the on screen instruction.
(note: installation of Operating system can lost your important files, back up the files)

installation of OS refer to this info: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/winxp/install.mspx

please do not rate me if the solution not solve the problem.

if need more info, please notify me, i will give you more information.

best regards.
