Cannot find C:\WINNT\command.com ERROR
Posted on 2004-10-06
when I boot up the system comes up with the normal load
operations, but as it said "loading personal settings", a bonk sound came
up in the background, and then a black screen showed up and said: "Cannot
find C:\WINNT\command.com...check spelling, etc." Trying to click on the X
just gave me more bonk sounds.
I did a CTRL-ALT-DEL and got the task manager, and browsed for command.com,
which I finally found in the SYSTEM32 folder. Even so, nothing happened
with it either. So I ended the task, and then Windows came up, but none of
the startup programs came in, and the entire task tray on the right is
empty except for the date.
This is an upgrade version of XP from 2000.
Any idea's what might be going on???
This is a client's computer and the above is an Email
from him. Ever since the upgrade he has had nothing but problems. XP is wearing thin on him and I need to fix these issues ASAP. Every Hotfix or patch for 3rd party software or app, generates a new problem.
Please help! Thanks!
