After updating all XP files Apr 8, I defragged complete Then ran a registry defrag

power outage crashed my system after defrag but before restart.

 

F8 does not access safe mode, or other commands.

 

can reach repair at C;\windows but can access limited functions typing. such as:

 

ran chkdsk /p, but no other commands.

 

this is second PC, can access from internet, for downloading, etc... but that system is Vista.

 

Thanks in advance I realize this is a big one.  Prompt Replies.

 

I have been using this 2nd  system for all major backups,as well.

Missing Or Corrupt Win\sys32\Config\sys in XP is typically a registry problem, I believe.

 

See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545 and pay attention to the warning that pertains to OEM (Lenovo, Dell, etc.) systems.

 

FWIW:  Not sure what a "registry defrag" tool is...but it sounds like an "optimizer/registry cleaner" application.  Such are not supported by BC.

 

Microsoft support policy for the use of registry cleaning utilities - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2563254

Good Link. How do I determine if i have an OEM system or not.
If I read this article corectly, are you saying that after Part1, my pc will start and I will be able to open Windows Explorer.

Parts 2 and 3, look that the pc will be runnng again, but maintenance work must be done.

Before I start this procedure, please advise me.


MOd note.. copied this reply out of the Reports section...

If you have a "name brand" system...then you have an OEM system.

 

Original Equipment Manufacturers...the ones who assemble/manufacture the components of the system before releasing same to retialers/outlets for distribution to the consuming public.  I have previously given examples of OEM.
