So this morning I left my laptop on while going to college and then work, after work I came home the laptop was off. Weird I thought I start it up and It keeps giving me an error that the "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: WINDOWSSYSTEM32CONFIGSYSTEM".
It tells me to instert the Windows XP cd, or set up cd.
Now I havent done it yet because I want to know is there anyway to save my stuff that I have on my harddrive? and DO NOT WANT IT TO FORMAT MY HARDDRIVE
The reason is I have FINAL PROJECTS for my term papers and also FINALS and all information related to college. I am really worried that I dont have it anymore and I dont know what I would tell my college proffesors. Please someone if you know how to save the portion of the disk thats not windows please help.
I also tried doing a start up disk, before coming to my senses realizing that my laptop doesnt have a floppy drive.
I think this cd that im using is not service pack 2 even thought my laptop had it on when it crashed. Any ideas what I can do thank you
