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?

    • 1 Download the missing comctl32.dll file. Locate a website that offers the comctl32.dll file. You can also use the link in the Resources section.
    • 2 Unzip the download file if it is a .zip-type file. Right-click on the file and choose "extract" to make the file available in a .dll format.
    • 3 Install the missing comctl32.dll file in the proper folder on the computer. If the operating system is 64-bit Windows, copy comctl32.dll to the "C:\Windows\SysWOW64" folder. If the operating system is 32-bit Windows, copy comctl32.dll to the "C:\Windows\System32" folder.
    • 4 Restart the computer by clicking on the "Start" button and selecting the "Restart Computer" option.
    • 5 Open the computer program that previously displayed the error message stating that the file comctl32.dll was missing. This will verify the program now works properly.

If you're using Windows 7, check if it's running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. On your computer, go to Start menu > right-click on Computer > Properties. Take note of the System Type.
Use the links below to download the Lexmark Z2420 Printer Driver from the Lexmark website: - Lexmark Z2420 Driver for Windows XP/Vista 32-bit/Windows 7 32-bit - Lexmark Z2420 Driver for Vista 64-bit/Windows 7 64-bit

My daughters Asus eee pc MK90H notebook says windows could not start because system 32 is missing or corrupt. It says to use the original CD Rom, which obviously we dont have. Help what do we do?


Hi,
To restore a missing or corrupt ntfs.sys file you must have the Windows XP CD and follow the below steps.

Insert the Windows XP CD into the computer and restart the computer.
As the computer is starting make sure to press a key to boot from the CD.
In the Windows XP setup screen press the 'R' key to run the Windows Recovery Console.
If prompted enter the number of Windows installation you're repairing.
At the command prompt type the below command.

copy x:\i386\ntfs.sys c:\windows\system32\drivers

* In the above example you would replace x: with the letter of your CD-ROM drive. Many computers have the CD-ROM drive configured as the D: drive.

If ntfs.sys is still on the computer you'll be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file. If prompted, press the Y key for Yes to overwrite the file.
Once the file has been successfully copied remove the CD and reboot your computer.

Do NOT use an OEM "Recovery Disc". Only a valid Windows XP media will work or a disc from the OEM that says "Operating System" may sometimes work depending on how the manufacturer labeled the CD.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more information Thanks

When i turn on computer says bootmgr is missing


Hello I believe you have some system configuration problems or perhaps a damaged boot sector. A sure fix would be to boot to the installation disc and perform a repair installation. If no luck, boot to a DOS disc and type in fixmbr. Then attempt the repair installation of windows. Hope this helps.

Error message says: missing file, aquatica.dat


Hi,

This is a system files. These are basic file's in a window directory.Regarding aquatica.dat, it is a multimedia file component.

You can repair this by downloading .dat file from .dat database. You can easily search the file online and add it. If you purchase a software, it would cost you certain bucks. Better reinstall windows or restore.

Computer can be affected by the missing of these files. It depends on How many files are missing, configuration of the PC, Virus, Malisware, Adware etc.

The simple option - Restore or Reinstall, if not a tech.

Let me know,if need any further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

PREINST6.SWM missing; PREINST9.SWM missing; Error:10-FC06-0002


Means pre-installion is missing. Which means yoou either have to Reinstall a fresh copy of your windows or your can reinstall your windows by just repairing the files. Its always good to make a recovery disk after every install. If you haven't tried it already restart your pc press f8 as the scene pops up and go to Last good configuration.
