Windows WP

  1. Windows XP

    My computer stayed on with screen down. When switching on the screen after a day or two, the following message appeared -

    "Windows can not start because the following file is missing or corrupt
    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."

    My action - put in the CD to boot from CD
    Blue screen appears after a while - at the top "Windows Setup" and towards the middle the following message -

    "File \i386\ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded.
    The error code is 4
    Setup can not continue. Press any key to exit"

    I have followed this procedure over and over and does not make any progress.
    I also tried to go back to the last working configuration.
    I also tried to start up in "safe mode"
    No success!

    Any help would be appreciated.
