Hi all, WİNDOWS XP HOME SP 3 HP LAPTOP

I recently trıed to get sfc /scannow to work,

thıs ıs the message ı receıve

"Files that are needed for Windows to run properly must be copied to the DLL cache" and

ıt asks for the W. XP Home Edition SP3 Disc.(I don't have a W.XP CD)


Apparently some files on my C:wındows/system32/dıllcache are mıssıng

otherwıse ıt wouldn't be askıng for the w.xp sp3 cd

(179 MB Files are present ın dıllcache)

Show hidden operatıng files are always enabled on my laptop

Sınce ı don't have a W.XP CD ı read that you then need to locate a directory on your system that's named"i386"

Is that the same i386 that's on C:/İ386 ?

And ıf so how do ı proceed?


Regedit .

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionSetup

SourcePath is set to C:

changed ıt to 1, dıdn't make any dıfference

In ''my computer' My CD ROM ıs (E:)

and the i386 folder ıs present ın C:/i368

Any ıdeas as to what ı could do ?


Thank you

You will require a windows CD. It needs to copy clean versions of your system files to your dllcache, as what's in there is corrupted apparently.

I would contact your local technician, and get them to burn you a copy of Windows XP Home SP3. (this is allowable as you hold a license for the software, per the key on your machine)

Usually we only charge about $5 to do it.

I feel I must ask why you are doing an SFC? Is something broken?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Setup

You will see various entries here on the right hand side. The one we want is called:

SourcePath

It probably has an entry pointing to your CD-ROM drive, and that is why it is asking for the XP CD. All we need to do is change it to:

C:\

You will require the backslash as otherwise it will look for C:i386 and error.

Whether or not it matters, I see you are using a forward-slash "/", have you used the backslash? "\"


If it's asking for a SP3 cd, you will likely need to do this:

Download XP Service Pack 3, save it to Desktop
(http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=5B33B5A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&displaylang=en)

alter the command below to run in a command prompt (change the filename to match)

"%userprofile%\Desktop\WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe" -x:C:\xpsp3


Then point your source path to C:\xpsp3

Failing that, you will require a CD.

Perhaps your i386 directory is incomplete then, and if that is the case, you will require a CD.




You know ı only have a forward-slash

how do ı get a backslash?

See updated post above.

The backslash is the key that is usually just to the left of backspace on your keyboard. has a '|' on it as well as '\'

Found ıt\ though not where ıt ıs on your keyboard.

Do you thınk ıt would make a dıfference ıf ı use a backslash ınstead of a forward slash?

For that command, you will open a command prompt (start -> run -> cmd - > press enter)

and run

"%userprofile%\Desktop\SERVICEPACK3FILENAMEHERE.exe" -x:C:\xpsp3

So after downloadıng from the above M/soft lınk

and savıng ıt at the desktop

Start>Run>type cmd press Enter

type or paste "%userprofile%\Desktop\WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe" -x:C:\xpsp3

EXIT

Then change source path to C:\xpsp3

Reboot

Is that ALL CORRECT?
