Angry can't find windows file, can't load windows

ok, lately my computer has been giving me problems. don't you hate that. i recently built a new pentium 4 1.6a system for my girlfriend. however, i went to boot it up and now the computer goes straight to the bios without me clicking any button to bring it to that menu. after i leave the bios it posts (without showing my the speed to the cpu, don't know what's up with that?) and then it gives me this message: "windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: c:\windows\system32\config\system." what gives? my system has windows xp home, 60GB desktop 120 gxp ibm hdd, pioneer 16x dvd rom, 256MB samsung 2700 DDr, and 350 watt enermax psu. anybody have any ideas how i can fix this or do i have to go straight to "format c:" thanks guys.
