Hi, Can you pls give some more info: System 32 error after POST before Windows or System 32 error, after windows partially booted? Offhand, if the error is after POST before Windows boot, it is a hardware problem based on motherboard built-in diagnostic program: you may have to check/repalce reseat/connect memory, video card, hard drive; If it is after Windows partially boots, then chances are it is a driver problem; try running in safe mode and check at which points it stops or hangs. Hope this give you some idea. Pls post/comment back if you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Advent will not BOOT


The BOOT.INI file may be corrupt. Boot to a command prompt and rename original file c:\ren boot.ini boot.tmp. Now type edit. and insert the following script.

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

Save as boot.ini. Alt key gives you the menu options

You can also create the file elsewhere and copy to c:\ Remember to rename original.
Note! This is a single partition standard from factory configuration.

My laptop won't start and says "NLTDR is missing" press control alt delete to restart... why is that?


Windows is corrupt...
Sol = Reload Windows XP

you will need an original WinXP disk....insert the disk in the CD drive and restart...let it boot from the CD (to make changes to boot sequence make changes in BIOS)
once it boots from CD then repair you OS or install a fresh copy of the OS

My sony vaio laptop went a black screen with a white hyphen in the upper left hand corner. It will not cut on and will not reboot


The most-likely cause is a malfunctioning (or even "dead") disk-drive.
Without the disk-drive, Windows cannot be loaded into your RAM.
So, what you get is that "lonely" underscore character.

Find a Microsoft Windows XP "installation" CD-ROM.
Insert it into your CD-drive.
Hold down the ON/OFF button until your computer turns off.
Press the ON/OFF button, to start-up your computer,
and tell your computer to boot from the CD-ROM device.
If it does boot, then the rest of your computer (excluding the disk-drive) is working fine.

Replace the disk-drive, and reinstall Windows, to "revive" your computer.

The error code BI0HD-4 is a hard disk error. You need to delete all partitions on your hard disk and create new ones and format them
This will solve the problem.
