Do I burn a copy, using another computer, than load it into the broken one?
Sorry for my ignorance for something that is simple but I have found its always better to ask someone that knows what they are doing when I do not.
that is always the best thing to do..
trying things on your own without any idea whats going to happen can and will usually screw things up worse then what you already have going on...
the link you put in your first post is broken...
Please download ARCDC from Artellos.com
- Double click ARCDC.exe
- Follow the dialog until you see 6 options. Please pick: Windows Professional SP2 & SP3
- You will see a few dos screens flash by, this is normal.
- Next you will be able to choose to add extra files. Select the Default Files.
- The last window will allow you to burn the disk using BurnCDCC
Your ISO is located on your desktop.
make sure in the bios the cd drive is the first boot device....put the cd in the cd drive..boot your computer....when you get to the screen that gives you the option to install or repair ...select r
when you get to the command prompt
type in chkdsk /r
note the single space before the /
Chkdsk will display the specific stage it is checking as well as the percentage of completion of the stage. You cannot do anything else on your computer while chkdsk is running. When chkdsk is finished, it will automatically reboot your computer.
NOTE this can take a long time to complete..it may even appear to hang or get stuck at a certain % for a couple of hours...then complete
it may even back up and go over the same area...this is normal...let it run...there are 5 stages
DO NOT TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER WHILE RUNNING CHKDSK or you can have severe problems...
