My Acer Desktop Pc Can't Start Windows Xp, So I Can't Use The Computer. What Could Have Caused The Problem?

Postby Tanjiro » Mon Sep 18, 2017 8:29 pm

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

c:\windows\system32\config\system

You can attempt repair this file by starting windows set-up using original set-up CD-ROM. Select 'r' at first screen to start repair."

This desktop PC comes with 2 CDs - 1. Acer Power/Aspire System and 2. Acer Recovery CD.

Desktop PC users out there especially ACER users, please advise - what should I do to solve this problem???

The Window is corrupted. Reinstall the Windows and it will be fine. It might be caused by virus or corruption of system files.

It sounds like a virus may have done some considerable damage.
You could either A.)go to a store, buy a windows XP CD and run the repair utility from there, or B.)run the Acer Recovery CD which should revert it back to the state in which it was bought.
