I got a error code 14, I Do Not have any recovery discs as I found the kids playing frisbee with them one day.
I was looking into buying a new OEM XP on ebay but am getting conflicting information on whether or not it
will work and what is needed for it to work.............Any thoughts ??
Its stuck in the familiar Windows to blue screen loop, its an HP Desktop......Thanks.
I had a similar problem but your suggestion above does not even work. I receive a message stating:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language ..
3. Click "Repair your computer."
I tried doing that, but it didn't work. I have three different discs though, from Geek Squad, labeled Recovery Disc 1, RD 2, RD 3. I tried first using disc 1, but to no avail.
The message below the above reads:
If you do not have this disc, contact your system admin or computer manufacturer for assistance.
Info: Windows failed to load bec the system registry file is missing, or corrupt.
I went to Geek Squad but they want to charge $200 and I don't have it. There must be some solution here. You guys helped with my last problem.
