Hi. Can anyone give me help with my computer please.
I have a Dell Vostro 1310 running on windows xp but a couple of days ago everything completely froze on me. I gave it 20 mins and still nothing moved so i resulted to a force shut down(hitting the power off switch)
When it tried to reboot i got this message
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt
we thought we had a boot disc and proceedd to place this into the cd slot - this however did not appear to read and is now refusing to come out of the slot (no pinhole eject visable)
is there any way around this problem?
We dont have the original xp disc (eaten by a previous computer and spat out in pieces)
but we do have another laptop running xp and we do have an external drive floating that we use to back up photos etc
thank your for your time
