Dell n250 does not run following corruption message.
Posted on 2005-04-05
I recently replaced a keyboard on this laptop and had to clear the air vents to stop it overheating. It is back in the shop now with what I assume is an unrelated problem.
It was returned because the user (who plays a lot of games) was unable to start windows. He tells me there was a message something like,
'windows was unable to start because the following file is missing or corrupt.....windows/sysconfig.'
However it won't even get that far for me. Press the start button and the pc turns itself straight off without any flicker from the hdd light.
I have tried booting from a Windows OS disk but it makes no difference.
Any idea how I can procede?
In trouble again,
