alright im at the library comp so i dont have much time.
Basically My comp was runnin fine till i turned it on and it said
"Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM"
then my stepdad tried to fix it and tried to instal windows 98 and the error loading operating system has happened.
My comp is pretty old (5-7 years) and im sure quite outdated. but i was wondering if there was something i could do to fix it and not have to waste money tryin to get other ppl to fix it for me or waste money gettin a expensive software or somethin. There is somethin on there that i can get to, when i hit the F5 -F8 Keys at start up, it goes to somethin called "BIOS UTILITY SYSTEM" but it doesnt have a "recovery" thing anywhere on there as im told the newer ones do. so i was wondering if there is somethin that can be done. i have 2 minutes left so Im just gonna stop now. any help would be greatly appreciated
