Hello everyone,

Those of you with expertise in fixing computers, I'm in urgent need to get mycomp fixed! I installed a game demo on my comp, and as I was gonna start playing the game, I received a blue screen on windows XP mainly telling me to restart.

Over a course of time, I restarted 1000000 times! Sometimes i would get nothing, and one moment the comp said that "system32\Drivers\Ntfs.sys" is corrupted or missing. Then it said to put in the XP installation Cd and press "r."

the problem is that i tried restarting many times, but the comp never reached to reading the installation cd. at mot, it would just freeze at the point in which it loads up the windows xp boot logo boot screen or remain on showing system configs before booting.

can anyone give me tips on how to solve this mess up?

thank sooo much! :tazz:

it sounds like your cd is not set to first device in the boot order section of the bios.

Enter bios by typing del, f1, f2 (whatever your machine calls setup), look for a boot order setting and make sure CD is first

Then reboot with cd in the drive

Choose R for recovery console.

Try
chdsk /r
first
