To repair Windows OS system files you can use SFC Command and if you wish to replace windows installation you can boot from CD and go to setup then it will detect old installation then you can press "R" key, I'm not sure that what kinda files you trying to replace so try sfc first and if not go for the 2nd option


System File Checker gives an administrator the ability to scan all protected files to verify their versions. If System File Checker discovers that a protected file has been overwritten, it retrieves the correct version of the file from the cache folder (%Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache) or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file. System File Checker also checks and repopulates the cache folder. You must be logged on as an administrator or as a member of the Administrators group to run System File Checker. If the cache folder becomes damaged or unusable, you can use the sfc /scannow, the sfc /scanonce, or the sfc /scanboot commands to repair its contents. os errer - uparrow.gifBack to the top
System File Checker Tool Syntax loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Sfc [/Scannow] [/Scanonce] [/Scanboot] [/Revert] [/Purgecache] [/Cachesize=x]/Scannow: Scans all protected system files immediately and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files. • /Scanonce: Scans all protected system files one time when you restart your computer. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files when you restart the computer. The SfcScan DWORD value is set to 2 in the following registry key when you run this command: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon/Scanboot: Scans all protected system files every time you start your computer. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files every time you start your computer. The SfcScan DWORD value is set to 1 in the following registry key when you run this command: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon/Revert: Returns scan to the default setting (do not scan protected files when you start the computer).The default cache size is not reset when you run this command. This command is equivalent to the /Enable switch in Windows 2000. • /Purgecache: Purges the file cache and scans all protected system files immediately. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files. • /Cachesize=x: Sets the file cache size to x megabytes (MB). The default size of the cache is 50 MB. This command requires you to restart the computer, and then run the /purgecache command to adjust the size of the on-disk cache. This command sets the SfcQuota DWORD value to x in the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinlogonFor additional information about the Windows File Protection feature, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 222193 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/222193/EN-US/) Description of the Windows 2000 Windows File Protection Feature

I can use my Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop says that windows could not start because drive 1 not found: serial ATA, SATA-2 and drive 3 not found: Parallel ATA, PATA1?


Use your system restore disks to repair your computer since the OS is FUBAR
Without those disks you are SOL. And if you never made them or lost them, now you have learned first hand why it is so important to have them.
Go to the dell site and see if they have your original OS in an iso file for installation. If so that will save your sorry b---.

Borrow that CD-ROM from any friend who does have one -- you don't need to have your "original" disk.

Or, telephone eMachines, and order a replacement set of "System Restore" disks.
Probably $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier shipping.

Put the original setup CD-ROM into your CD-drive.
Restart the computer.
Tell it to "boot" from the disk in the CD-drive.
Choose "repair an existing Windows installation",
and let it fix the problem.
Remove the CD-ROM disk.
Restart your (repaired) computer.
