after searching the internet no answer has been able to help me. My computer is pretty banged up, almost got robbed at the train station the other week. Been getting worse ever since. After some random usage it refuses to start up, saying:
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
Please re-install a copy of the above file."
I searched for possible fixes, but none has worked yet, as I mentioned before. The only Windows XP disc I have doesnt let me use any repair or restore option, it simply doesnt offer it to me when I boot from the CD. I read that this might be because I have to use the exact same version of Windows CD as I have installed on the computer, is this true?
It is an ACER netbook, Aspire One ZG5, running on XP, which SP I dont know, unfortunately.
If not save the windows install, is there a way to get to the information on the computer and save it? More specificly, chat and internet history.
Thanks for any and all help!
