Hi All Ok, last night I was trying to update my creative sound card drivers. I went to the creative website and downloaded the latest drivers for my sb audigy 2 zs. During the install of the drivers, my computer said that there were older drivers installed, and asked if I wanted to delete the old drivers and restart the computer. I clicked "yes", the old drivers were uninstalled, and the computer restarted. When I entered windows, the driver installation resumed, but a screen also popped up that said something about opening the trouble shooter for my sound card, or something like that, I wasnt really paying attention. When the trouble shooter screen came up, the computer bsod and restarted. I didnt catch the error message. Now Windows wont load, it says "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\system32\c_1252.nls" and that I can attempt to repair using the original setup cd-rom. I did some searching around the internet and found this site http://support.microsoft.com/kb/830088 However, I dont have the original windows cd that came with my computer, as I dont believe they sent me one. I do have a recovery DVD that came with my computer. I have a product key sticker on the side of my tower, and I am running Windows xp Media Center 2004. I managed to locate a Windows xp pro corporate edition cd. Using this cd I was able to get into the recovery console and tried to follow the instructions on the microsoft support link above. First thing I did was type "chkdsk /r" and I got "The volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems." Okay, so I moved on to the next step and I typed in "cd system32" and I get "There is no floppy disk or cd in the drive." Ive tried this several times but it all results the same. Thats as far as I got. Im guessing the cd I have is maybe the problem? I hope its that and not a serious issue. Do I need my specific cd to my specific windows install to repair windows? (I don't see this happening) Or do I need a Windows xp 2004 media center cd? Or is it that the windows xp pro cd I am using is a corporate edition, or...........? I'm kinda lost here, and could use some help from some more knowledgeable people. Any help at all is appreciated. Thanks //edit forgot to mention I also tried to repair windows using the guide on this forum http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic8356.html But once i hit f8 to agree, there is no repair option, just Windows xp set up, create a partition, or delete a partition. I can get to this screen using the recovery dvd that came with my computer, but I cant get to the recovery console with it.
