Ok, so approx. 5 months ago I turned on my computer and it would not boot. I believe it was indicating a missing system32 .dll file. I have put it on the back burner.
Today, trying to tackle it again. I attempt to but boot and receive:
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM"
Different error than before.
So, I run F12 from boot menu and run IDE Hard Drive Diagnostic, and the Hard Drive indicates a PASS.
I then boot from Recovery Console Disk and attempt to run chkdsk. However, I immediately receive the error:
"The volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems"
So, is the hard drive toast? And if so, why would the IDE test pass but not the chkdsk?
Thanks for any help!
