If you can boot by going to the last known good configuration do it otherwise
You need to start up with your install disc in its drive.

My netbook will not start up,it says,file is missing or corrupt


it means your notebook missing system file ( Windows file ) , so you must start repair it , and repair progress will bring and set this missing windows file
so you have to press start repair and follow the steps to fix this issue or you can fix this issue with windows CD, just boot your notebook with Windows CD , and after boot start choose repair windows.

last thing you can try this ,
    • press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

    • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start, and then press F8.

  1. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.

Hi

Windows system 32 config file is part of the operating system and when this is missing or corrupted, you cannot boot up your computer. The only solution is to reinstall or repair your operating system. Good Luck.

Google "XP System Restore"
It can help you restore the computer to a previous state.
Hopefully you will have a restore point before the error started.
If you start having more "missing" devices or files your hard drive might be failing.

I hope this hellps.

Msi notebook wirelss is not working


I suggest you treat your problem as two separate issues. The first is configuring a Local Area Network (LAN) with file sharing. The second is configuring the wireless communication links.

If possible, set up a "wired" LAN that performs as desired before trying to integrate the wireless links into your LAN. Hopefully you could do this with the desktop computer, one or both of the notebooks, and the wireless router. Does the wireless router have four hard wired LAN ports that function as a switch?

While they don't address the wireless component of your problem, The following Microsoft documents (downloads) are excellent resources for understanding and troubleshooting Windows XP file and printer sharing:
File and Printer Sharing with Microsoft Windows
Troubleshooting File and Printer Sharing in Microsoft Windows XP

There's quite a bit of redundant information, so you may want to start with the second document.

Basically, I'm not a fan of "wizards". When they work, you're very happy. When they don't work, you're very unhappy (and don't have a clue how to proceed). Setup the file sharing manually. The documents above essentially provide a tutorial to do that.

When you cannot see all of the server computers on the network in My Network Places or Network Neighborhood, the solution depends on whether you have successful network connectivity.

To check whether you have basic network connectivity from the browse client to the missing server computer, do the following:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In Open, type \\ComputerName (in which ComputerName is the name of the missing server computer), and then press ENTER.

If you get a window that displays the shared resources of the missing server computer, then you have basic network connectivity to the missing server computer. If you get an error message stating that the network path was not found, then there is a problem with basic network connectivity to the missing server computer.

If you have successful network connectivity to the missing server computer but you do not see it in the workgroup window, then it could be due to one of the following:

o The missing computers are configured with different workgroup name
o The browse servers do not yet have all the computers in their browse lists
o The missing computers are not on the same physical network segment

Good luck!
