My laptop toshiba satellite a15-s1292 gives \windows\system32\config\system system file not found error. I am not able to get into system. I don't have the repair cd/formating cd for this laptop. please...


This sounds like the registry is corrupt.
You will need to borrow a CD from a friend with the same operating system and boot from it. You should then be able to enter the recovery console and repair the registry assuming that you are using winxp or vista.

Recovery console key convination for a laptop?


Hi there.
Restart the PC and hit F2 while it boots up, this will take you into the bios, look for boot devices and set the CD to the first boot device, save the changes and exit the bios. The compuer will restart and boot from the CD drive.
Once the OS has installed go back into the bios and set the HDD (hard drive) to first boot device.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
