Hello to everyone, I have been reading forums for


This is a typical sign of a defective hard drive.Your hard drive might or might not be repairable, depending on the degree of damage.
I would recommend that you use a live CD (such as this one: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html) to boot up your computer & run a hard disk diagnostic tool like HDD Regenerator. It might take several hours (sometimes days) to fix the damage. If this did not help, then you will have to replace the hard drive.

I dropped my HP Mini last night. And now it won't boot up. It says "WINDOWS COULD NOT START BECAUSE THE FOLLOWING FILE IS MISSING OR CORRUPT: SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\PCI.SYS" Help please


What that has told you is that the file pci.sys somehow got corrupted. It's possible it was being written to when the drop occurred. PCI is the bus system usually associated with hard drives and other add on devices so its not one you can ignore.

The problem and the solution are both a bit annoying. That file needs to be replaced. The easiest way would be to boot using a memory stick and then just copy a good file over. Then you have the option of doing a system restore or recovery. Unless you take it into a shop this may be your only option as you need to be able to match the file type/version etc. And it is quite possible that there are other files damaged as well. You just haven't got past the one error. The downside to this is that you may loose some documents and settings depending on how the restore or recovery version you have.

Copaq presario v 2000 crash


HI
Can you log into windows normally?
If not, you may need to install windows from the beggining.
In case that windows work fine & the problem is just with system files, you can follow these steps:
1- From Start Menu choose "Run"
2- Type: SFC /SCANNOW
3- Press Enter & insert the windows XP cd when asked, then click continue or restart as the window tells you.

This should help you repair almost every problem in th systm folder.
Hope it works.

Safe mode....unsafe.


Your PC is stuck in safe mode startup

I would suggest using the Windows Disk, if you have one, go through normal windows installation. At the point of installation just after pressing F8 it will detect windows exists and offer you a repair option press R to repair
