Probably either a bad CD or bad CD drive. First try a puff of air into the open drive. Then get hold of an identical CD if you can to try that. If that doesn't work, try using an external CD-ROM drive.

Computer won't start up - says file missing or corrupt: \windows\system 32\config\system. cannot open cd=rom to use original set-up CD


That folder contains all of your Windows files, so your operating system is no good anymore. So you have to reinstall Windows. It sounds like you have the disc so we just need to get that drive open. To get your CD drive open, you have to use the override system. On most CD drives, there's a little hole on the front. Sometimes it's hard to see. What you need to do it get a paper clip and straighten it out. Then stick the paper clip in that tiny hole. Keep going in until you feel a little catch, then keep pressing. This will mechanically open you CD drive. Just put the disc in and close it up again. Hopefully your reinstallation of Windows will work out. Best of luck!

Dell vostro 1400 screen of death 0x0000c1f5 will not boot self repair


If you have the operating system cd, you can boot from the cd and select a repair.

Otherwise the best solution would be a clean install.
Connect your hard drive to another computer, and copy the files you want to save.
After that, reinstall your operating system.
Then you can move your saved files to the newly installed operating system.

Gateway 4024GZ/How do I reinstall operating system w/out disks?


Ok this is not as hard as one may think. Get a copy of whatever software you want from the net. Either Burn to a DVD & use an external USB, DVD, and install as usual. Or put it on a memory stick and use that. You will, if your machine is disabled, have to use a third parties machine to do all of that. There are a number of tutorials on the net of how to make and boot and install from a USB Flash Drive.

When i turn on my computer i get a error message that the stystem registry data file is missing how do i restore the registry file?


Your system is corrupted. You need to reinstall it, but first backup your data. If you can't boot into the operating system, try a live CD, I would recommend you ubuntu live CD, download from ubuntu.org (http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download), just insert it and reboot from the CD. Once the system is ready, you can copy your information to a CD/DVD and then try to reinstall the original 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.

Lost win.ini.net.dll file


You need to repair your system
But if you havn't the CD
Below is the step
But make sure you close any unnecessary software and applications that run in the system tray like Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Instant messenger and others, before using winnt32. This should speed up the whole process.

Understand that after a while your computer will start to slow down, freeze and sometimes not even shut down correctly. These symptoms are perfectly normal for Microsoft Windows operating systems that require a clean, fresh start. But sometimes manufacturers do not include a copy of the operating system on a disk to save you money when purchasing your computer and ultimately save them money too.Access the copy of the operating system on the hard drive. If manufacturers do not supply a Windows XP CD with the purchase of your new computer, they have most definitely stored a copy in your hard drive for later use. You can easily access this copy of the CD on your hard drive to completely reinstall or format partitions on your computer.

Back up your personal data including photos, pictures, documents, favorites, passwords and settings to CD/DVD/USB.

Make sure you have your Windows product key/serial number. This could be located on the computer itself, or in the original packaging it was supplied with. If you do not have one, look in the registry or contact your manufacturer immediately for more support regarding the issue.
Click on My Computer then C: then i386. This is the a part where a lot of people get confused. They realize that a copy of their Windows XP CD is here, but they look for the wrong files. Most people will try to find a file named "Setup", "Install", or "Windows". The file you are looking for is called "winnt32.exe".

Open this application and proceed with the instructions given. It will lead you through 5 simple phases that will wipe out your computer and reinstall the operating system.
Get your product key ready to enter it. Make sure you agree with the terms that should be provided when using the winnt32.exe application.

If you are using any operating system below Windows 2000 or Me, try looking for the winnt.exe application as the winnt32.exe application may not be availible for your version of the Windows OS in the I386 folder. Winnt.exe uses a command driven interface, and therefore requires simple commands to use to reinstall Windows or format partitions. You can find these simple commands here

Warning!

All drivers will be wiped clean. That includes graphic cards, audio drivers, wireless drivers, etc. Make sure your manufacturers has supplied you with the correct softwares to reinstall the drivers that will be lost on reinstallation of the OS.
Do not forget to back up all of your data with a system restore tool, or else everything will be lost. This means all software and programs currently installed on the computer.
Remember Microsoft will not take any responsibility for anything that may go wrong and cause damage to your computer system.

If the I386 folder or Winnt32.exe/Winnt.exe application does not exist, or you cannot find it, use the Search feature to help you (Start>Search). If it does not yield any results, a copy of the CD may not have been stored on your hard drive. Contact your manufacturer for more support.
