I am trying to fix an old Dell 4300 for an unemployed friend. Of course he has no restore or backup disc. This is what the screen says:

Please re-install a copy of the above file.
It may also have IRQ issues, but since I am a rookie, (I can build a system but I can't troubleshoot) I'll try to learn one step at a time.
