My friend has a BSOD problem on his Win XP desktop that I am trying to get fixed without a Windows XP cd, if possible.
I am thinking that likely it is due to corrupted files or registry. Oftentimes the BSOD error message will mention "winsys32" which I know in and of itself is not a malware or any such.
I've been told to try a repair/reload of all Win files using an XP CD, and if that fails, to wipe the HD and just do a reinstall. Problem is, we don't have any access to an XP CD, and it's a bit of a challenge to try to get one.
Is there any way to fix the issue without the win CD?
Hope I included everything you need to answer the question but if not, let me know and I will try to supply whatever info you need in order to answer.
Computer is a Dell Optiplex GX260 from 2002. Win XP 32 bit.
