Hi everyone: I have an eMachines T2682 and it brings up problems like this at startup: Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG You can attempt to repair this file by inserting the windows CD and pressing 'r' at the first screen And this continues and I really don't know what the problem is. I cannot boot into safe mode, and harddrive self tests are always turning out OK with flying colors. I have fixed this problem by using the eMachines restore disk, but it wipes all of my personal files, such as games saves, etc. I have one partition, which is just a main windows partition. System Specs: Processor: Intel Celeron 2.60 GHz Motherboard: Intel 845GV BIOS: Pheonix bios, version 1.1 Graphics: PNY Verto FX5500 128MB Dual VGA PCI Harddrive: Western Digital WDC WD800EB-11DJF0 (IDE) Sound: Creative SoundBlaster Live! 24-bit USB External O/S: Windows XP Home Edition SP1 Anything more you need will be in my profile, i put system specs in here for convience Please help me with my problem, and also, I have no Windows XP cd to use, only a restore disk which wipes all of my personal files, which I dont want to happen.
