windows could not start up because file is missing or corrupt
to attempt to repair run original windows setup CD-ROM. At first screen press 'r' to begin to repair.
Now I've had this problem before and I brought it into Geek Squad and they had told me one way to fix this problem is to get and run any windows xp CD-ROM and follow instructions and this would be able to fix it. What I ended up doing since I've only had the laptop for a little over a month I just decided to buy the recovery discs to fix the problem. The difference now is that I've had my laptop for a while and using it consistently for business purposes. Now to avoid restoring my laptop to factory settings using the recovery discs and risk losing all my hard work, downloads, upgrades and settings do you recommend the same solution as geeksquad or do you have a better solution. Please get back to me ASAP. Thank you for your time.
