Good! Now since we have determined the Samsung drive is the C:\ drive
we will start there. Here is the link:

http://www.samsung.c...rsguide_02.htmt

Using this link can you detemine whether this drive is the master?

G ;)

Brenda you do that, and I will check the other drive.

Still working?

The setting for the fujitsu drive are located here:

http://www.fel.fujit...85&inf=cfg&wg=0

Again, check your settings on this drive. If it is to be the slave then place the jumpers to indicate that.

Brenda,

Did you have to change the settings?

The reason I'm asking is if tht was the C:\ drive it should have been set for master already.

We'll get back to that.....


now check the second drive and see if it is set to master, slave, or cable select.

Let me know!

Great!

Is the C:\drive clean?
Do you get a prompt?
A blue screen?

Anything at all?

no, it flashed that the cd-rom drive was not found and then it went
back to the old screen it had when it started.
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 the original
setup cd-rom.
select 'r' at the first screen to start repair

now when you hit r or try to do anything it just keeps coming back to this last screen.

Good!

We are back to a stable point here.

Check to see if the computer is set to boot from the CD.
Then try booting with the new CD in the drive.

We are getting there!

So when you try the reboot with the CD in the drive nothing happens?
Blank screen, instructions to hit 'r', anything at all?

when i reboot the 1st screen is the screen where it tells you youfree space, your drives and you can hit delete to setup.
the 2nd screen flashes, verifying dmi pool and boot from atrapi cd-rom not found
the 3rd and final screen says:
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 the original setup cd-rom
select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.


and that is as far as it will go. I can not even get it to go into safe mode.

well i will catch you tomorrow, this old momma has to go to bed now before I have a seizure. thanks for all your help, you have taught me alot today, and I have really enjoyed it. but I would never want to make a living doing this kind of work, I would have to go back being a cpa. good night

I know this is taking some time....I apologize.

Is it possible you have a bad CD Driver?
The computer is wanting to work, but can't find the necessary system files.

The option is to download a program like the one here:

http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

Can you download, burn it to a disk, and try it?

You are doing great!! We will fix it, I promise.

sure, I will get on it right now. I am dial up, it might take me a little time.
and far as the disk drive being bad, I guess it could be, but I just bought and
installed it not even a month ago. and I do ground myself before I touch the inside of the computer, I have tried to find the wrist bands for static, but nobody carries them it seems. I get back you soon as i get the ulitmatedboot downloaded.
