Do you have in your possession the original disks that came with the machine? If not, try solving by starting in safe mode. This is done by pressing the "F8" key when the windows splash screen appears. Let me know and we will get it fixed.

Hello,

Hold down the ctrl key and the f11 key at the same time and then power on the laptop. You should come up with a menu then that will ask to do a full restore or reboot. If you can not get into the safe mode with the f8 key you might have other hardware issues. Hope this helps some.

My Gateway file c0000218 registry failure the registry cannot load the hive /SystemRoot/System/32/Config/System or its log or alternate is. It is corrupt, absent or, not writable.


it sounds like you have a bad sector on the part of the hard drive containing this file. you need to let chkdsk complete the scan as it may be able to recover the corrupt file and isolate the bad sector so its not used again.
if this works backup the system as your hard drive may be failing.

Severe Windows corruption - the file that keeps all the configuration settings is missing or corrupted.
If you don't have a backup of the registry then you will have to reinstall Windows.

STOP: C0000218 {Registry File Failure} The registry cannot load the hive (file):\System Root\System32\Config\SECURITY or its log or alternate. It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.


to fix the problem, you need the Installation cd, put it in, start the setup, and enter repair console when the first blue menu comes up.

In repair console, your going to have to copy the windows\repair directory to system32\config

to fix the problem.


After the files have been copyed, Well maybe might be better if you only copy the SECURITY file. so no login details get changed.


Then restart the pc and see if it worked. If not your going to have to perform a repair installation from the xp cd.

If you need more asistance, let me know. Good luck.
