Hello,



When i try to turn on my dell desktop I get a message saying "windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\sytem". I have tried running the repair consol, but when prompted to press 1 for C:Windows the CPU just freezes and manually needs to be shut off. I have also tried to act as if I am going to install windows again and when CPU does the system check "searching for previous versions of microsoft windows the CPU also freezes and needs to be shut off manually. Any help on this is appreciated, I have thousands of pictures on my CPU and don't want to loose them.

Hi,

You need a Windows CD to repair it. Boot with the windows cd and choose R to repair the system.

Good Luck
