This is a posible solution, boot your windows in safe mode with command prompt (by pressing 'f8' as the windows splash screen appears a menu will by prompted with this option), enter this:

C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

in the command prompt and follow the instructions to restore the system.

If this doesn't work the problem may be a faulty hard disk, contact again if your problem persists.

How can i reinstall the ntoskrnl.exe when it is corrupt


Assuming a couple of things:
1. Your OS is Windows XP
2. This is the error message you are getting -
"Windows NT could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
Winnt_root\System32\Ntoskrnl.exe
Please re-install a copy of the above file."

To reinstall notskrnl.exe, do this:
  • Start the computer by using your Windows XP CD-ROM. Press any key to boot from the CD.
  • After the setup files are finished loading press R to repair using Recovery Console.
  • When you are in the recovery console, select the installation to log on to (usually number 1), and then press ENTER.
  • Login to the Administrator account by typing the password for this account, and then press ENTER.
  • At the recovery console command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

    For Uni-Processor systems: expand <cd-drive>:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ <hd-drive>:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
    For Multi-Processor systems:expand <cd-drive>:\i386\ntkrnlmp.ex_ <hd-drive>:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
    Note In these two commands, the <cd-drive> placeholder represents the drive letter of your CD drive, and the <hd-drive> placeholder represents the drive letter of the hard disk on which windows is installed.
  • If you receive a prompt to overwrite the file, press Y.
  • Type exit, and press ENTER at the command prompt.
  • You should now be able to boot up properly.

    Xp crashed


    When xp doesnt boot up and tells you that "following file is mising or corrupt"
    just put your winxp cd in, reboot, startup recovery console and type chkdsk. This will start scandisk and after checking your drive and fixing errors you reboot and evrything should be fine. By the way try typing help in the recovery console for more commands if you want to..

    last but d least call to hardware professional and reinstall new operating system..

    Following files missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system


    Well this means one of important files needed to start Windows is corrupted (it's a registry file).
    I'd recommend repairing Windows installation. If you have Windows XP and also the Original Windows CD follow: this guide.

    Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: &lt;windows root&gt;\system32\hal.dll. How do i fix it?


    hi, right you need to boot up using your windows disk, change the boot order so it picks your DVD drive first, now select repair once windows starts up.

    Keep getting this message <window


    Hello,
    • "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
      <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.
      Please re-install a copy of the above file."

    • "<Winnt_root>\System32\Hal.dll missing or corrupt:
      Please re-install a copy of the above file."

    • "Cannot find \Windows\System32\hal.dll"

    • "Cannot find hal.dll"
    The "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error displays shortly after the computer is first started. Windows XP has not yet fully loaded when this error message appears. CauseCauses of the "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error include, naturally, a damaged hal.dll DLL file or a hal.dll file that has been deleted or moved from its intended location.Additional causes may include a damaged or missing boot.ini file or possibly a physically damaged hard drive.

      Please let me know you have any further questions or concerns.
    Thanks.

    <Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe.


    Do you have a Windows CD that came with your computer? If so do you know how to boot from it by inserting it into the drive and then pressing F12 just after you switch on your PC? If you can do this then you could try the "repair" option from Windows Setup, this might fix your missing PC problem.
