Question about Acer Aspire 1642ZWLMi Notebook

1 Answer

Compaq, not Acer! Error msg: "windows\no system 32\confi\system " !

How can I boot up as my Compaq Media Center SR1950NX gives error msg "no windows\system 32\config\system" or similar?

The fix is supposedly to use the factory disc to fix it--BUT COMPAQ DIDN'T GIVE SUCH A DISC. All is on a sector of the HD--and that cannot be accessed until the machine is booted up.

The two-disc fix set made when the machine was new gives only one option: put all back to as from the factory, losing all data!

This is 3d PC that blew up after about 3-4 years of life.

Can I save it?

My nx9600 wont boot up and gives me an error message.


Just to clarify: this is PART "Clarification Request" and PART "Solution" --

Sorry, but more information is needed before your question can be properly addressed. Please post back the exact error message it gives you, and WHEN the error message appears (for example: is it after you see the windows logo? before windows logo appears, but after the BIOS info appears? - where the error occurs in the boot process is very important to determine how to troubleshoot the issue).

You can always write down the exact error message, and do a search on the manufacturer's website, the Microsoft website (or website for whatever OS you may have installed if other than Windows), and most of all, Google - If searching Google, to narrow results to be more relevant, you can include your model number/mfg info in the search string then the error message (or error message #, if one applies).

Post back more info on your issue and error msg, and I will be glad to try and assist you further. Best of luck to you!

Reinstalling


Hard drive has bad sectors on it which is why its giving you that message even though you can go thru the restore. Normally going thru the system cd and then the recovery cd should bring you into windows with the device drivers installed.

Error loading operating system - Windows Xp


If you are attempting to use Recovery and this is happening, Most likely you have a corrupted recovery partition....

If you are attempting to load Windows XP from A CDrom (Externally)
you will need to use an XP Cd that has integrated Sata drivers.. Windows home/pro 32bit does not..

Or Use a Windows Media Center Edition Version

As per your issue since you cannot boot to safe mode or last known good configuration.probably your Operating system file is corrupted.Tried to boot from OS xp media or vista and try to repair the operating system.Change the boot sequence to boot from cd in the bios.

Can't boot windows xp


it sounds like the easiest solution would to either run the repair sequence from a windows xp disk (may not be a perminant fix) if that doesent work just use the xp disk to format the drive and install a new operating system

Error message when starting up: <Windowsroot>\system 32\hal.dll. Please reinstall a copy of the above file.


This issue happens if boot files are corrupted .. you need to have the Operating System Cd to resolve this problem . Considering you have windows xp you need to have the installation cd for windows xp .
you need to use bootcfg command to resolve the issue.

Go to bios and change the boot sequence to boot from the cd, if you are not able to boot from the cd. and then boot using windows xp cd .

Then push R to go to recovery console and use the below command

Boot to Recovery Console and rebuild the BOOT.INI file with the BOOTCFG /REBUILD
command.

Try removing the jumper from the harddrive, then restart

or

Take the jumper off restart shut down and then put it back on again

or

remove the CMOS battery from system board and boot once after booting shutdown your system and insert the battery back, again start your system and press F1 next time it won't ask you for pressing F1. reset your BIOS after that (time,date,etc.)

Try these one should work.

Please let me know.
