windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM you can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using original cd-rom. select r at first screen to start repair.
i got out the original cd-rom and put it in laptop. i dont really know how to do a repair, so i found this page on the internet.....
it didn't do me much good as it is kind of long and complicated and i tried to type in the initial commands but the computer would not recognize them?
i hated to have to do this, but i did a clean install next. after the new installation, the screen came up fine, with no lines. i go to turn on the computer the very next day and they are back! i can reboot once or twice and manage to get the screen to come up without the lines but i sure would like to figure out what they are and how to get rid of them. i read someplace that it might have something to do with my video care needing a replacement? don't know if that is right and if it is where would i even find one for my brand of computer? appreciate any help i can get. you guys have always been lifesavers in the past! i love geeks to go!
