my computer won't start up, today i came home and turn my computer on.. it went past the three normal screens and the screen went black.. 1st screen) Dell XPS with it's logo 2) BIOS window or w/e where everything loads 3) dell xps loading screen 4) windows loading screen where the bars go across the screen..

after 3 the screen goes black and after about 5 minutes i get an error message saying "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: /windows/system32/config/system you can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using the original set cd-rom. select 'r' at the first screen to start repair..."

i've tried putting in the window desk but it doesnt bring up a screen or anything telling me i can repair or anything it just does the same exact thing...
