    WindowsXP. The driver uninstalls okay along with a few other software portions but can't uninstall the copy utility to reinstall it from the supplied disk. Can't remember the error message exactly. If I could just uninstall everything and reinstall I suspect I could fix the problem but seems funny I can't get rid of it.

    I just got it to work. Uninstalled(it finally worked!?) and reinstalled everything a few times, finally got the copy utility to work. No idea why. Thanks anyway.

"setup was unable to copy


See, "setup was unable to copy the file F:\vb.net \vs2008\readme.htm to your temporary directory .Please make sure that this file exits and rerun setup" its mean the file readme.htm is missing in setup folder of visual studio 2008. So, for this first you have to simply download readme.htm file http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/confirmation.aspx?id=5478 and download direct in your visual studio 2008 folder. Then refresh the folder of visual studio 2008 and run or doble click on setup file.
It will work. :) thank you.

My computer lost ( ntlpd is missing) plus said press ctrl alt del it's not coming up.


Sounds like you've got some corrupted files. If you have your Windows disc, try a reinstall/repair or try to drop back to a previous restore point.

If those don't work, you might try to reformat/re-install your software. (backup your data if you can beforehand as reformatting will wipe all data from the drive).

This can even be a hardware problem, like the HD controller bad, which caused the file problem in the first place. Or a virus can cause such issues, which would make reformatting/reinstalling a good idea as well.

Make sure you have a defragment task running every month, if not every week. You can schedule to run at night or during the day, whenever you're not at the computer. If you turn it off when you're not using it, just leave it on that one day (or night) that the defragment needs to run... or start it manually before you go to sleep and unless it's a large drive, it should be done when you get up.

Good Luck!

When i try to start up my laptop, i get a black screen that says "NTLDR" is missing" and "press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" when I restart it, the same screen just reappears. I've also tried pressing F11 to...


The file can be copied from different computer using the same operating system and same version..It can only be done if you can hook up your hardisk from that computer and make it as slave...go to search file and search for the NTLDR file and its directory. copy the file and save it to the same directory of your hardisk slave. If file copying is successful, disconnect your hardisk from that computer and connect it to your laptop, then try to boot.

If that did not work, you can repair your missing file by running your windows installer. Make your cd rom as first booting device and run the setup of windows, when prompted, press F8.. follow some instructions. After searching previous windows system press R key to repair the system.. The set up will restart your unit once its complete.

i hope i help you with this...

much appreciated if you rate this solution..thnaks.

Laptop is saying file missing/corrupt


You can do it without using the cd, but you'll need another PC which is running properly with the same operating system. What you need to do is just copy the particular missing file and paste it in your hardrive windows system32 directory using command prompt, or you can connect your hardisk to another pc and copy/paste it.. Good luck..

A FILE WINDOWS SYSTEM ROOT 32 IS MISSING OR CORRUPT


Try starting in 'SAFE MODE'.
Click START
Click RUN
Type CMD and press ENTER.
Type 'CHKDSK C: /F' and press ENTER.
If you are prompted to shutdown & restart to run the "check disk", do so.
During the restart, "check disk" will find/repair any file-system problems, and then restart in "normal" mode.

Having problems with my compaq Persario 2500


this problem occurs when you try to update drivers in the computer..sometimes windows XP cannot update the driver and that corrupts system.ini file as it has a lot of bad entries..Due to this you will get this error mesage..No its not due to virus.its due to an attempt to change system.ini file

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

That means the System Registry Hive has become corrupted.

There are two ways to get back up and running. The easy way which doesn't always work, and then there is the hard way.

Easy Way --- Note that this doesn't always work.
When you are booting your system, press the F8 key during the start of the bootup sequence, meaning after it does the Power On Self Test.

Once you press the F8 key, you will be taken to a Menu. Select "Boot Using Last Known Good Configuration".

It will now attempt to load Windows XP using a past set of configuration files.

If that doesn't work, there is the next step....the hard way.

Hard Way
Boot your system with the Windows XP Install CD, let the system boot into the Setup. Once in the Setup, choose to run the Recovery Console.

You will now be presented with a screen similar to good old DOS.

First, we will recover the System Hive.

Now, type in the following commands with pressing Enter after each line.

md tmp
copy C:\windows\system32\config\system C:\windows\tmp\system.bak
delete C:\windows\system32\config\system
copy C:\windows\repair\system C:\windows\system32\config\system

Be very careful when you are typing in these commands, one wrong move, and you have, broken Windows XP.

Also, change the C in the commands to whatever your Windows XP drive letter is.

Attempt to boot the system, if it doesn't boot, get back into the Recovery Console and do the following commands.

md tmp
copy C:\windows\system32\config\software C:\windows\tmp\software.bak
delete C:\windows\system32\config\software
copy C:\windows\repair\software C:\windows\system32\config\software
