C0000218 (Registry file failure)

Everytime i turn my laptop on, the Windows wont start and a quick flash of error code gave me this - C0000218. Ive already tried all the options (start windows normally, use the last configuration that worked and safe modes), but it all didnt worked. Is there any solution for this problem? Thanks

Windows cant access required registry files

if you have a xp cd, put it in, start the setup, and enter repair console.

In repair console you should see a

c:>

prompt, type cd windows
cd repair
copy *.* c:\windows\system32\config\

type exit after files have been copyed, overwrite if asked.

type exit

restart pc and try to start windows if this fails

go back to xp setup and perform a repair installation.

My Gateway file c0000218 registry failure the registry cannot load the hive /SystemRoot/System/32/Config/System or its log or alternate is. It is corrupt, absent or, not writable.


it sounds like you have a bad sector on the part of the hard drive containing this file. you need to let chkdsk complete the scan as it may be able to recover the corrupt file and isolate the bad sector so its not used again.
if this works backup the system as your hard drive may be failing.

Registry file failure


Do a clean installation from CD rather than simply doing a system restore. There's less chance for something to go wrong with a clean installation. The Stop: c0000218 (registry file failure) error is typically associated with one of several things, depending on how far through the recovery process you made it before encountering the error.

Registry file failure


If the last suggestion i posted didn't work, you need to put in your Windows CD on boot up and when it asks if you want to repair or install press 'R' for repair, this should repair any damaged registry files and Windows files.

Registry file failure


This sounds like a previously removed piece of sofware, either a peice of a programme spyware, virus or malware, thats still got the start up files registered. Download this programme, it's very good, it's free and has no spyware attached, it will remove all traces of unused registry files and temporary files. http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ If you still have problems click Start>Run and type 'msconfig' without quotes. This will bring up a window; click the startup tab and see if there are any unrecognised programmes on start up that you no longer use.
