My system has crashed with that system error message. Dell says that I can reinstall windows with out needing the disks. Does anyone know how to do this?

I believe that you can boot into a repair partition to do that. When you first boot your machine there should be an option to select boot options after post. Maybe like F9 or F12. In there you should be able to select the repair partition.

Ok I was able to try to repair XP by using my disk and going into f12 and booting from the disk then following the instructions for repair from bestTechie.net.
Now I get the following message"Attached File  computer.doc   19.5KB   56 downloads Can anyone help me from here? Otherwise can I install a clean version and then use my backup disks to retrieve my files?
