my computer won't start but sometimes it does start like now that i'm posting this...

but most of the time it never starts unless i keep trying to open it...

so one time i started the computer and it tells me that system32 file is corrupted or missing? and i checked the windows website for help and i need to use the recovery console, which i saw almost every time when i start my computer.

but one time when i activated windows recovery console it didn't finish and some problem occurred...and the computer shuts down.

i need help fixing this can any1 help!!

it is the computer that i am using right now that is having problems starting up but at rare occasions it works like how i am posting this right now so this is urgent i need help before the computer SHUTS DOWN AGAIN!!!

There is no System32 file...there is a system32 folder which is full of different files.

You need to pay attention and write down the complete message exactly as it appears onscreen...then someone may have an idea or two.

Do you have a Microsoft XP install CD?

i have system restore turned on already it seems, and the earliest time i can manually restore my system is to a time the computer already has this problem. I think my computer suffered from playing too much computer games and something might have melted last year and for months it keeps shutting down, because right after my computer got fixed i went to play this online game and it starts shutting down automatically from then on....

is there a way to play online games without my computer shutting down all the time? The computer also freezes and you can't do anything when i finally get the computer to work...
