The PC running XP that I recently had problems getting to POST has gone wrong again.

I got it up and running and all has been fine until this morning and now it will not run windows.

I get the folowing: 'Windows cannot start the followinf file is missing or corrupt - \Windows\System32\Config\System'

I try doing a REPAIR from disc but this does not work neither has CHKDSK
