well, you need 2 things, make a repair system file, with your XP Cd, and pressing R when startup with your CD inside, or ...reformat your hard drive and install the OS again. in this particular case, is the best bet.

That shows that you have a problem in your operating system, the sound that you hear and the warning message that appeared. you need to run your xp cd by clicking the repair, the repair can replace the corrupted file from your operating system. repair can not erase or delete your document it will just repair your operating system

Hi Dude,

Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt file in this path: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

For this what you have to do is insert the Operating System CD and boot with it and goto repair windows.

hope this will helps you

    scandisk for dos won't work if the filesystem is NTFS.



    There is something else you can try.



    you can copy the windows\system32\config directory from another computer with xp if you have.

  • goovy75 Dec 09, 2007

    by the way. Can you explain more of the funny sound how it's like?

  • goovy75 Dec 10, 2007

    And could you tell me the reason fo the inappropriate flag?

Urlmon can't be found


goto Start--> Run and then type msconfig , now go to "Start UP " tab and then in the down pane you can find many services that start up when the computer is turned on. You can find the missing DLL profile there , the box may be unchecked or else select the option " Enable All" then click Apply and then OK. The error will be solved , and moreover this wont create any problem with the error message displayed. U can skip the error message if it again comes. This error message is due to the uninstallation of any program recently.

WONT START - SAYS WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM


Hi,
See if you can borrow an installation cd from a friend. DO NOT use an OEM disc or one supplied by dell...compaq etc because they use different passwords and stuff.

Then go into system repair console. Check on google to go from there.

"scanner is busy" message


Turn the scanner off, disconect from computer, turn on again while its disconnected, let it do its startup routine for a few minutes. When it stops making noises, turn off again. Turn off computer and restart. Connect scanner again to computer and turn it on. Start the software. I'd appreciate if you'd let me know if it helped. Otherwise you might need to open it or send it for repair to Sony. Service contact is here: http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/contact/sonylist/index.html
