    Absolutely brilliant thank you! This is my younger sisters laptop and she has a lot of stuff she does not want to lose. The only trouble I have now is that I have her windows xp serial number, but not the disc...and I can't find my copy either! Any advice on that? Could really do without buying a new copy of xp!

A Windows system file is corrupt.
The best thing to do is reinstalling the system.
This can be done either using original recovery CD, or using Windows setup disk.

To preserve your data you will need to chose partial recovery or upgrade setup.

Windows XP CDs has also a tool called Recovery Console that can be used to repair this kind of problem.

Here the procedure to fix the problem using Windows Recovery Console:

  • Insert Windows Setup CD, then start the computer.
  • When Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R.
  • When asked, chose the Windows installation you wish to repair (eg 1) , then press Enter.
  • When prompted, enter the administrator password .
  • When command prompt (DOS screen) starts, enter the following commands./ (if C: is not your Windows system drive, then change the drive letter)
    ATTRIB -H -R -S C:\BOOT.INI
    DEL C:\BOOT.INI
    BOOTCFG /REBUILD FIXBOOT
  • Remove the Windows CD from drive and restart computer.

I believe you should try LKGC (Last Known Good configuration) before using a recovery disc.

Follow the steps below,

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.

Start up problem!!


When you boot up start pressing F8 and you should get a Windows startup page with more options. If you do select Safe Mode
When windows has loaded, goto MSConfig and select Diagnostic Startup. Ok and reboot
See if windows boots normally.

Booting problem


You may have to boot from a CD and make a repair.
Once logged in the CD, choose repair option (Recovery Console), and type these three commands:
1) fixmbr (wait til it finishes)
2) fixboot (wait...)
3) CHKDSK (this will take longer than the previous two.
Your laptop may now boot normally. I think your laptop doesn't have an internal CD-ROM so you may use an external USB CD.

Try rebooting it with the cd you ejected back in, to see if the installation finishes. If this does not work, take the disk back out and try booting with the option Last Good Configuration.

Try to boot in safe mode. From a cold boot, hit f8 till it gives you several options including "safe mode". Do that and if you can boot to windows let it do it's stuff before restarting normally. Good luck
