I am running a HP Pavillion 5700 with windows xp home. At start up it begins
to load windows then goes to ablue screen with the folloiwng message:

"Registry cannot load hive(file) \systemroot\system32\config\security or its
log alternate. It is corrupt absent or non writable. Beginning dump of
physical memory. Physical memory dump complete"

It then reboots and continues the cycle unless turned off. It runs this
cycle even if I attempt a boot to command pompt, or safe mode, or whatever.
Have run a repair install the problem persists. Does anyone have any
solutions other than reformat. File back-up needs to take place before
reformat.
