FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    #2548715 - 04/11/04 02:22 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I'm typing this from the computer lab at my school because my computer won't start up. It says some system file is corrupt and I need the Windows CD to start it up. I don't know where the Windows CD is, but my guess is that it's at home, about 350 miles away. I've got two major papers due this week, as well as a research presentation. What can I do? Am I pretty much fucked?

Well, it might depend on what system file it is. Does it say? You might be able to download it from the school's computers and then install it on yours. Try doing a search for the file if it gives you the name.

Well, I don't know if that would work, but it's worth a try! (I'm assuming SS7 has some flavor of XP) More likely than not though, your (SS7) school has Windows2000 or some such
Can you have your parents/friends/siblings Fed Ex it to you overnight?
If all else fails, I would just talk to the teachers in your particular classes and explain your situation. Most teachers will cut you some slack in cases like this, provided you don't wait 'till the last minute. Hope things work out! :laugh:

If your hard drive is larger than 137 gigs make sure your friend's computer is 48 bit LBA compatable or it will turn on with checkdisc and fuxxor your data.

I ordered the recovery disk, and it arrived in the mail today, but my computer still won't work.  I guess it's time for a new computer. :sad:

I don't think I would go out and buy a new computer over a corrupt file :wink:  If you can get the same version of windows on CD from a friend or something you should be able to reinstall it without loosing all the data saved on your hard drive..this might fix the problem.  Do you have a boot disk? 

Worst case scenario, you might end up having to consider formatting the hard drive and starting over from scratch..  In which case you would also need a windows installation cd.. =/

Computers are wonderful, aren't they?    :nonono:

I already told you I tried the recovery disk and it didn't work. Anyway, ya, it looks like I'm going to need to get a windows installation cd. I've been thinking about getting a new computer anyway.

I have been under the impression a system boot disk and a recovery disk were two different things..but perhaps not.

Maybe they are, but it doesn't sound like it. When I took my computer to Comp USA, the guy told me to order a recovery disk. Oh well.

Recovery disks and boot disks are different. 

Persoanlly, "Recovery Disks" from Microsoft SUCK! 

Most, if not all, versions of Windows XP are a boot disk.

In other words, you go to Comp USA and buy a copy of Windows XP (or borrow someones).  You put that CD into your drive and it will boot up.  You may have to change your BIOS to boot from the CD.

You'll see choices on what you want to do.... a screen will pop up asking if you want to repair, reinstall or install Windows.

Recovery disks I've never found to be helpful.  But they may work for you. 

If you really need to get your computer up and running try this.....

Ask a friend for their computer... Start up their computer, then plug your friend computer into yours using a USB cable. 

Turn on your computer...

Then on your friends computer (if both computers are running Windows XP)  you should be able to see the drives on your computer thru your friends....

Cut, paste, copy any files that you need from your computer onto your friends.

Then once you are sure you have all of the files you need...

Just do a clean install a.k.a reformat your computer and put on a clean, working version of Windows..... on Linux :smile:

Good Luck.

look, get someone to let them put your hard drive into their computer, copy it over, format your old drive, install everything, and copy it back over.

I'm not sure how to put my hard drive into someone else's computer, especially since I have a laptop.

A full version for $100??

Microsoft is great at not making things stick out... for example. For $100 retail, you may have purchased the UPGRADE.

This means that if you had Windows 2000, you could upgrade to Windows XP.

Look on the box, if it says upgrade anywhere, it won't work. You need the full version.
