Hi I have a pc that has crashed windows xp, do not have restore disc but do have a windows upgrade disc. Am trying to re - copy files but the ms dos commands do not seem to work. Have tried sfc and chkdisc. Any ideas what else might fix it.

Will this work with an windows xp upgrade cd?

Yes.

I have run as you suggested many thanks. Chkdsk came back everything fine but windows did not start up before this. What else would you suggest the pc won't start up just goes round on a loop every time it gets to windows atart up.

It was coming up on black screen during start up with apati cd - rom .... failure does that mean something significant?

It is trying to boot from the CD drive with no CD in the drive. Muine does that every boot - nothing to worry about.

just ran the kernel32.dll file but it is still going round in a loop. So to re cap I have run recovery console and kernel 32. Still won't start up what can I do?

Have now run kernel 32 twice and it still won't start up. Any ideas ?
