Firstly I'd like to say hello as I'm new here. I guess a lot of people find this site when they have a problem.
My son, having had all summer to finish his homework, has found his computer won't start. He has XP home installed. On start up it gets as far as a black screen which says:
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt
Please re-install a copy of the above file.
He doesn't have a copy of that file. I would be grateful for any advice please.
