my computer was workin fine and every once in a while it would pop up with a blue screen saying registry file failure, the hive could load the file it is corrupt absent or missing. i tryed everthing to return to the normal screen by pressing escape, con+alt+del to no avail. i just decided to hold the power button to turn it off. it started up normally and i forgot about the problem. the screen would pop up again every once in a while and i would just turn the computer off. at one point the computer would not start up and went directly to the blue screen during start up. i turned it off immediately and restarted it. it did the same thing and i became instantly worried. i messed around with everything i could but it didnt work. i have spent hours on the internet searching through posts like these on how to fix it but most of them center around windows xp or backing up the files which is at a point that my computer never allows me to get to. i have the installation cd but everytime i put it in, it does nothing. somebody please help me because this is very irritating.
