Need advice on What should I do about a PC error
    #3836476 - 02/26/05 12:56 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Greetings,

When I start up my computer, while in startup mode, a black screen pops up with a message that one of my files is corrupt or missing, and that I need to insert the windows xp disk to fix the problem.

The file is : System32\Drivers\pci.sys

Now I don't have windows disk and cannot get one, so I'm thinking about doing a defragmentation on all my drives, but i'm not sure it will solve the problem.

THe pc works, so does windows and the internet, but I don't want to ignore this problem. Please offer me some advice if you can.

Peace & lOve

Mojo

maybe your RAM is faulty, try swapping that out.

I doubt that is the problem. I have had that problem before and the only thing that fixed it was a complete reinstall of the OS.

the OS meaning Windows XP? If so, that would suck big time.

I've noticed that my pc is working much slower than usual. This truly feels like a drag.

Download this tool, run it and report the results.
http://www.memtest86.com

This is a known error, most probably due to bad RAM modules or bad HDD sectors. So, run scandisk if no memory errors are found.

Some resources:
http://www.ntcompatible.com/thread22634-1.html
http://www.theeldergeek.com/pci%20and%20ntfs%20dot%20sys%20errors.htm

If you still get errors after scandisk then the file might be corrupted beyond recovery, you will need a XP copy to reinstall the file. If so, look here, http://www.jsifaq.com/SUBK/tip5400/rh5410.htm
