What is the code?

Is this a BSOD stop or a Reliability History error

post the dmp file for more info
find it in windows\minidumps
you can copy it by hooking your drive to a working system, or boot from a live cd, like Knoppix  http://knoppix.net/      
or find a windows live cd

The last error that came up is configuration is not all there. The system configuration I suspect is missing some parts. I seem to recall a few years ago, there was a set of cmd's to copy and replace the system files?

John, not sure how to DVD start up?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
If you start from the OS DVD it should offer the option of Startup Repair or Repair. See if that happens

Well there is the problem. I have no DVD from the user to do this. It is windows 7 and I have a windows 7 OS DVD will this do? This DVD is to load the OS on a new or to re-image? I need to make sure the guys data is safe. Once I pull the data off I can re-image if needed. This why I was hoping to fix the system files.

Be sure you backup first to be sure you protect your data

I have a USB with a SATA connector that I can pull the drive out and back up the data first to make sure that is safe then start to see if I can repair the system files and if not I will just re-image. I will keep you all up on this as I have not seen this error before but I have seen something similar. Protecting the data is my first need.

John, it was the hard drive. I connected to a sled to try to clone the data and it says no media found. It does see the drive but no data. I plugged the drive into another computer and it again sees the drive but no data. I will replace the drive and re-image. Thanks for all the help from all.

Your very welcome. I was not sure I distributed the pints right so it should have been 50-50. You both helped and the information was very good.
