HI,

You canrecovery the MIssing file, by installing the OS
Don't go for installation ,give Repair the option
when you boot up the Lpatop,
press either F2 or Del, this will get you into the cmos settings, navigate to advanced cmos settings and normally at the top line is the boot sequence which will say HDD, press either up/down keys or + - keys to change to cdrom as first boot device, save settings and exit.
Insert you cd rom before the system boots into windows and the option prompting you to press enter to boot from cd will appear for 30seconds.
ok---enter---repair-- in this option it will recover the missing files.

Assuming you already tried pressing F8 on boot up and trying to get it into safe mode to run a disc check and that did not work?

This is a configuration file that can only be repaired by the use of OS installation CD, which if the laptop is booted with the disc in the drive and the bios is sett o boot from the DVD drive first, will give you the option to carry out a repair of the installation

Window Could not seart because the following file is missing or corrupt:\Windows\systems32\config\system


The operating system is corrupted. You'll have to do a fresh install using the disk that came with the laptop, or with a retail Windows disk from a store like Walmart. Sometimes, a computer repair store can get the data off the harddrive first.

Eee pc 900SD. It wont boot up. say's file is missing or corrupt. \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM. There is no cd\dvd rom so can i use flash drive or memory stick to replace that file? Cheers Don.W.


systems32 is part of operating system. and your computer is corrupted. Only solution is to reformat your computer by installing fresh operating system. Don't worry, you can borrow from any of your friend his EXTERNAL CDROM or DVD DRIVE to reformat your computer.

Compaq Presario 1700 PC Notebook Problem gives me a screen windows will not strat because file is corrupted or missing file is \windows\system32\config\system


Is this XP?
Do you have the XP cd or the recovery cd's. This needs to be fixed by performing a Windows repair.
missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system"means that the OS,XP, is missing an essential file to run.
Or it could mean that your hard drive is failing. Is the hard drive noisey?
