I came to my PC this morning and was faced with this error message on boot "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM". So i went down the NTDLR fix route, with no joy, I've tried a lot of other things to try and get up-and-running again, all with no joy. In my BIOS, however, my secondary IDE Slave/Master shows as NONE where is would normally list my 2 hard-drives. Both drives are less than 6 months old so i think it shouldn't be them.
My Specs are as follows:
Hard-drives: 2 x 250 Seagate SATA
Motherboard: ASUS P5NE SLi
Processor: Intel Core Duo 6400
Memory: 2 x 1 Gig
GFX Card: NVIDIA Ge-Force 8800 GTX
Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2
Another thing to note is my monitor won't come on, for the first few hours i was at a loss till i realised i could try the HDMI cable plugged into the back of my TV from my gfx card and it worked. I hope this sheds some light. Does anybody have any ideas?
I posted on another forum and i got nowhere with it so i'm posting here and few other forums in a final attempt to fix this myself. Here is a link to that thread so you can see what i have tried so far Click Me
