Hi, Maria10. I've attached a file for you to unzip to your USB drive so that you should have fix.bat in your USB drive. Once you do, boot into Reatogo and, once in, run the file (fix.bat). While running the file, if you get prompts within the Command Prompt window asking you to input something, just type Y at every prompt.

Keep in mind that this could lead to loss of userprofile data (this is only important in case you created a new profile after xp setup; that profile will not be registered and thus windows will remove any reference to it; the data will still exist as raw data, but will be overwritten soon).

Hi Amlak,

I have done the unzip for the attachment and saved on my USB... unfortunately it didn't work. :blush:
I started the computer with Reatogo and tried to run the fix.bat file from the USB and a window came up with the message:

C: A duplicate file name exists, or the file cannot be found (shows 5 lines with this same message)

Ok, go to D:\Windows\Repair and let me know if the following files exist there (note that they don't have any extension):

Default
SAM
Security
Software
System

Also, while you're at it, please provide me with the last date of modification for each.

They're all there, which is good.

What about when you go to D:\Windows\System32\Config?

List the dates modified for each of the following files there:

Default
SAM
Security
Software
System


Also, do the same for each of the following (if it exists):

Default.bak
SAM.bak
Security.bak
Software.bak
System.bak

Well, looks like they've been successfully replaced. Just to be sure, did you actually try to boot into normal Windows after following my last set of instructions?

Hi, Maria10. I've attached another file for you to unzip to your USB drive so that you should have fix2.bat in your USB drive. Once you do, boot into Reatogo and, once in, run the file (fix2.bat). While running the file, if you get prompts within the Command Prompt window asking you to input something, just type Y at every prompt.

Hi Amlak,

The fix2 also didn't work :( the computer still boots the same as before.
At this time the C: window with the message appears very quickly and i couldn't read it properly, but i believe is the same message from the previous fix file.

Could you check again to see whether or not it's the same message? Is it still Stop: 0x0000007b?

Also, before I head to sleep, do you have a recovery CD for your laptop (IBM Lenovo T60)?
