So I reformatted my old Dell Dimension 2400 PC. After I did I left it for about 1 month, hooked it up and downloaded a torrent (obviously where I messed up). After I made sure it was all set up I shut the computer down so I could move it. I did, turned it back on and this came up -
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
Please re-install a copy of the above file."
I don't know exactly what that means (I'll be honest), so I just decided I might as well just reformat it again. So I pop the operating system CD in and nothing happens. I restart it and attempt to boot it off the CD and it says something like "Hit f1 to retry boot, hit f2 to go to setup" and never works after retrying.
Not sure if anyone knows what a good solution would be, but any help would be appreciated.
