i then starting installing updates (automatically) then it said my windows xp was out of date so therefore i started updating it with windows service pack 2. (i downloaded it automatically off their website)
once installed it said that i had to restart my pc and this error came up.
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32\drivers\pci.sys
you can attempt to repair thjis file by starting windows setup using the original setup CD-ROM
select 'r' at the first screen to start repair"
i then tryed this and i dont know my administratory code which i do not know so i just reformatted my computer but have not yet installed SP2.
this is because i dont know how to get my administrator code so i do not want to install SP2 and then have to reformat my computer again.
Can anyone help?
