Seriously, can anyone help with this?

Tiny laptop model: 755S14.

O/S Win xp home.

Problems:

O/S is corrupt. Had a message telling me so.

Battery not charging.

CD Rom drive won't open; push the button and it makes a sound but no movement. There is no emergency release hole.

Booting is intermittant. It stops at the welcome screen - usually.



How can I reinstall the O/S in order to get it going?

First Remove the Battery and see if you can get into Safe Mode With Mains power only Press F5 as it's starting

PaulB2005: Don't remember the exact message as after a dozen or so attempts I only got it once - something like Windows\system32\config\config.log corrupt.

woodchip: Am presently trying to get into safe mode Ahh! I'm in! What next?

Try running System Restore, From Start\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\System Restore to a Okder date when it worked. If you get it to work you should Create aImage File to CDR if you have a CDRW with a Program like Acronis True Image
