Help with Windows repair install?

I recently started having problems with a dell inspiron 1000 notebook after some very important files got deleted.

Someone suggested that I perform a windows repair install. If i do this what will I need? ( a windows repair CD and the original start up CD that came with the laptop? Or can I download the repair off the internet? Or will i need to buy the windows installation CD and reinstall the whole thing over?

The laptop had windows service pack 1 originally installed on it and it was later updated to SP 2. If I do reinstall windows can i buy SP 2 or should i get the original SP 1 that it came with?

Please help and thanks in advance!

If your data files are deleted then repairing will not help you have to use some recovery software but if some of the important files of windows are deleted then repairing will help and you will need the XP installation disc with SP1 or SP2.

It tells me that the operating system cant be found


I'm suspecting that the mbr might be messed up or an important file was deleted from your system32 directory. Have you tried booting with a windows disc to maybe try to repair the installation?

You probably have a mbr virus. Try this:

Download The following iso listed below. It is the latest version of the Kaspersky rescue disk. You need to burn it to a CD with a program like Imgburn (Which is also FREE like the iso file). Then you need to boot from the CD and run the scanner. It should fix you right up.

Kaspersky rescue cd download:

yes, you can always open the programs and features section in Control Panel to uninstall utilities or programs you do not actually use or need. you can also delete old files like video, audio, pictures and documents no longer need to free up some space. after doing so, it would help to run disk defragmenter to organize the available space on the drive. Depending on the size of yuor hard drive, you can also replace it with a larger one or use an external drive to save files and use hard drive for program files and the operating system.

This sounds like the dreaded Windows Vista Black Screen of Death (KSOD). you might have a bad hard drive, but even more likely some software or a driver is causing a problem and caused Vista to get stuck. The repair will not work. You might be able to run a complete repair from the Windows Vista CD, if you have one. If you are not too experienced, take it to a reputable computer service center. If you are at all technical and have time, google your problem and you will see thousands of similar users with same problems.

This is one reason Microsoft released Windows 7 so soon.

Booting problem


The problem here is that the window operating system have been corrupt by virus or spyware.

If you still have you windows installation disk, run it and then do a repair, this will repair the system files that help boots the windows.
