You could boot to your Windows CD and select "R" for repair installation when that option screen appears after files are loaded.
Please let us know if you need instruction on booting to the Windows CD or anything else?
Good luck.

    Boot to the Windows XP CD?, then delete the partition that windows is on and create a new partition. Then after pressing the enter key to "Install Windows" on that partition when you are at the format screen choose "NTFS Normal" and not "NTFS Quick" for the format option, then you may continue to install Windows. The above will format/erase the harddrive, and then you can preform a "Clean Install".
    The above should get your PC running 3D games again, hopefully. Good luck.

Deleted file...how can iget it again?


You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended asoftech data recovery as it saved my life many times.

I have had success with this camera photo recovery software called asoftech photo recovery... Download the photo recovery program from
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

Sony HDD DCR-SR40 Handycam Accidental Video Deletion


When files are deleted they still remain on camcorder hard drive and can be recovered, unless they have been overwritten by fresh data.

The only thing to do so run a data recovery program to see what can be recovered. The only program I have tested is asoftech data recovery software and it had done the job well. download the data recovery from http://www.asoftech.com

Select the drive where your files were deleted and then do a deep scan. It will find your deleted files.
