Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My Everex StepNote computer which has Windows XP can not start because it says the Windows/System 32ConfigSystem file is missing or corrupt.It says I need the original Setup CD-ROM to attempt a repair--which I don't have.What should I do?


Answers :

Without a setup disc there's not much you can do other than take it to a repair shop.

Alternatively do you know anyone with a setup disc?

You'll also need to download the drivers for your m/c from the makers website.
