Posted Image

Try and get past the lines. -_-

My HP pavilion won't get past that screen. It says the files are missing or corrupt.
I have the disc inside, and i PUSH R yet it don't seem to work. IDK if the CD drive is broke.

ANY SUGGESTIONS? Anyone know any good places to take it, if yall can't help?

I have 1000's of dollars of material on this laptop, so I can't just let it go.

Please help. :thumbsup:

Hi -
If the CD cannot be read when inserted it may be not set to Auto read - At this stage if it can't read it may be faulty -
Any repair shop can replace this unit or if you know basics then you can do it yourself -
Simply unscrew the unit and note the wires then replace as they were -
Try the above from Budapest first -
Thank You -

What happens if you try to boot from the CD. Can you get into setup?

HP doesn't list a fix for this error, HP Support Page.

One of the things that can cause this error...bad hard drive. I would expect the worst.

I would try to run the chkdsk /r command from the XP Recovery Console. The link posted by Budapest is the standard reference for this error...I myself have never found any of these attempted methods to work (I did clean install).

How to Create a Bootable XP Recovery Console CD - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/276527/how-to-create-a-bootable-xp-recovery-console-cd/

I don't know what disk you are using in your efforts...but it doesn't sound like it's a MS Genuine XP CD.

Corrupted Registry - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/205375/unable-to-use-recovery-console-bsod/

The problem...is that either your registry is damaged and the system is unable to boot...or something worse (hard drive) is making Windows think that the registry is damaged.

The only known fixes for the error message that I'm aware of...have all been listed in this thread.
