I have a dell laptop - inspiron e1405 windows xp and a few days ago it just started acting weird. I couldn't be on longer then a few minutes without the computer completely freezing, it would just beep at me until i turned it off. It did that for a day and now when i turn it on it says.
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \window\system32\config\system"
It says i can attempt a repair but my computer did not come with a recovery disk.
My question is.. since I dont know what that means is should I even attempt to use a recovery disk? If yes where is a good place to buy from?
And is there anything i can do to save this laptop?
I have not done anything to the laptop since i got the error message. I have just done some online researching.
