Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

Dell dem 3000 will not turn on

When i turn it on it just says
windows could not start because the following file is missing or currupt
windowssystem32configsystem
could u help? When I turn on my computer Windows XP will not load. It starts loading the OS but then goes to the DELL logo screen, followed by a screen that says that the system was not shut down properly. It goes on to say that if it was forced to shut down because it stopped working I had the option to start up in SAFE MODE, and remove any suspect new hardware or software. Unfortunately, even when I select SAFE MODE it just loops back to the DELL logo screen after a feeble attempt to load Windows XP. At this point all I want to do is find a way to retrieve my personal spreadsheets and WORD documents before throwing my computer out the “WINDOW.” I do have another computer with XP on it which I would like to use to retrieve that data if there is a way to do that. Thanks!

What you need to do Is to take the Operating System reinstall disk that you got with your computer and boot from that. Once you get to the main screen press the option for a repair. Follow instructions on the screen. If you need more detail on how to do this just tell me and I will help.

All The Best,

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.

What do you do when my laptops says that Windows could not start because the following file is missing or currupt


Hello.

Boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date.


To access System Restore in Windows 7: Open the Start Menu. Click on All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and System Restore.

Hope this helps.

Do a windows repair, you can do this by using your windows xp disk, make sure that the first boot is set to your CDROM in the bios. restart your pc, you will see the windows installation screen, select to repair windows and follow the prompts. If you still need help I will be more then happy to walk you threw the whole process. Just let me know.

I need drivers my laptop currupted i can't open it anymore


Without the cd there isn't much you can do. Unless you can find one you'll have to hope your laptop has a system restore option but you would also risk losing all your data doing so.

I doubt you can get to safe mode, but give try safe mode with command prompt and type chkdsk in the cmd window.
