Pci.sys Missing Or Corrupt?
Posted 12 February 2008 - 01:59 PM
Windows xp sp2, 256ram, 2x 40gb hard drives(not raid), was all working fine for months!. Next day switched on and got
'windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt :system32\drivers\pci.sys'
If i go into boot options an try safe mode, command prompt etc the comp just hangs. If i boot from windows xp cd, i cannot get to part of 'repair' on cd or i cannot re-install windows as i get this error
'an un-expected error (268370096) occurred at line 1773in d:\xpsprtm\base\boot\setuparcdisp.c.'
i changed boot order in bios so the hdd without windows on had priority to try and install windows on this hdd, but again computer just froze.....have had a little read some say memory, some say just a repair will do it, but i cant get into that stage on the windows xp disk! I have tried the xp cd on my working pc and all the options are accessibe.
Any help would be much appreciated! and keep the good work up guys
