When I turn on my laptop, Windows won't start because a particular file is missing or corrupted. What can I do to retrieve my files?

  1. The windows XP installation disk is the safest and most reliable method of repair.
    Look in this forum, fourth post from the top, for the directions to do a repair installation. This does not erase the personal files.
  2. There is another way, depending on which file it is ex: command.com corrupt or missing error.
    Go to Microsofts site and search missing or corrupt whatever file it is from another PC and print out the instructions it is a long and tedious process but it will get your system back up, it pretty much copies a file that is backed up by your system not you and you copy it to your current system.

    Read up on it too much too explain.
