Re: file crupted repair

Insert your Windows XP install Disk and reboot
when it asks if you want to repair or install windows pick INSTALL. it will then search for previous installations and find yours.

At this point you press R for repair, it will reair your entire installation of windows, leaving your prgrams and files intact.

Be careful though, as the wrong choice could wipe your drive, although you are given many dire warnings by the installer before you do this, so if you read and pay attention you should be safe.

How can i fix dell latitude 505 when i turn it on it says windows could not start because this file is missing or corrupt : WINDOWSAppPatchdvrmain.sdb but i do not have the windows setup cd

See if you can get the file from another working computer with XP.
Hook up your drive as a secondary drive to this computer and carefully insert the file into the appropriate place and see what happens when you attempt to boot from your original drive.. Might just do the trick,

If not, not having disks you will have to get some other disks and reinstall the OS, Or if you can a hold of the disks for your machine from Dell do a repair and cross your fingers. I say that because a repair will not repair all files just certain ones and you have no idea of which ones will be repaired and which left alone. If the bogus file on your unit is not repaired then you have no choice other than to reinstall a new OS from scratch. Good luck.

XP is anyways going to get its support ended on July, 2014.

I am trying to restore Windows XP Professional to my laptop. Can you help? I have the original product key and proof of license number

  • Turn your computer on and insert your Windows XP professional CD in the CD/DVD reader. Monitor the screen and press the key necessary to enter the "Boot Menu," usually F8 or F12. In the "Boot Menu", select your CD/DVD drive and press "Enter."

  • 2

    Press any key to boot from the CD when prompted to do so. From the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press "Enter". Accept the license agreement by pressing "F8."

  • 3

    Select the Windows installation you want to restore and press "R." You will usually only have operating system to choose from. The system repair install will proceed automatically.

  • 4

    Click the "Start" menu after the installation process is done. Click "Run" and type "sysdm.cpl" before pressing "Enter."

  • 5

    Select the "Automatic Updates" tab and click "Automatically download recommended updates for my computer and install them." Your computer will install the updates that were lost when you repaired your Windows XP Professional operating system.

    How do I rebuild the MBR?


    You will need an XP install CD for this and also set the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device.

    1. Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above.

    2. Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, simply reboot and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
    3. When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console.
    4. The Recovery Console is now loading but needs to know which Windows installation to access. Most users only have a single Windows XP installation so the choice is usually clear.
      To the Which Windows installation would you like to log onto question, press 1 and then Enter.
    5. The Recovery Console now needs to know the administrator password for this Windows XP installation. Unless you are using a PC in a sizable business network, the administrator password is most likely the same password you use to access Windows XP on a daily basis. To the Type the Administrator password request, enter the password and press Enter.
      Note: If you do not have a password or Windows XP normally starts without asking for one, simply press Enter.
    6. Type fixmbr and then press Enter.
    7. The fixmbr utility will write a master boot record to the hard drive that you're currently using to boot into Windows XP. This will repair any corruption or damage that the master boot record may have.
    8. Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
      Assuming that a corrupt master boot record was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

    My computer only boots successfully after a forced shutdown.

    Is it possible that you have installed winxp twice? You say that you installed XP Pro sp3 was that an upgrade from xp home? if so then you will need to uninstall one or both versions of XP then install only one.. Make sure you backup any important files first though

    Cannot access anything on computer!!


    Maybe the explorer is not loading automatically. As you start Task Manager from Ctrl+Alt+Del, go to new task and run explorer.exe.

    OR If it still doesn't solve the problem try and repair the XP installation if you have the XP CD

    Computer has completely frozen and asks for gigabyte disk

    This can happen for a few reasons none of which are good.

    Two ideas

    1) If you have the original XP disk, boot from that and select repair.

    2) Start windows in safe mode. To do this press F8 when XP starts to load. Once in there you will need to look at the Event Viewer, System log to see if you can identify what happened. If you are not a computer geek then it might be best to find someone who is to look at your PC's event logs.

    Hopefully option 1 will get it done for you.

    Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

    Common practice when vendors sell thousands of machines. They clone the systems. This is legal, and common practice. Take your system back to them for help.
