Poo Chunks

Hi guys
My PC won't work. It doesn't load up Windows at all and just gets stuck. Previously, it said a file was missing and I need to use the recovery console but I don't know how to use it.
Please help me I really don't want to re-install it all again. Please.
I can't remember what file is supposedly missing and it doesn't bring that up anymore.

Sure m8 do this

Put XP installation disk inside. Go to install menu as usual. When you are at the part that let's you decide partition to install go until it ask you if you want a new install or you want to delete the previous windows dir. There you must quit with reset or F3. Usually the system is repairing the mbr and the boot files until it reaches the choices part so give it a go ! Good luck !

Fixboot hasn't worked so I'm trying Chris's suggestion.
What about a repair installation?

Chris's suggestion, and the repair install, neither work either. Looks like I've lost it. I'm beginning to think this is a problem with my HDD as it simply seems to stop loading things and the activity lgiht switches off.

Maybe some of the nv files are corrupted or missing. What happened before this?

Ok, this is what happened.
First, Windows began crashing. It first happened when loading up Connect Player. It simply froze.
Then it happened every time I booted up - the desktop would show but then it would freeze.
Then it came up with the file missing message.
Then it simply didnt boot at all.
Repair install doesnt work. Recovery console doesnt work. So I think I have lost it. I literally burst into tears. Im so fed up with all of this sh1t. And now I have a 4 hour photography exam.

Fan-bloody-tastic.

I managed once to uninstall my nforce drivers and of course there isn't much to do in this case...unles you have someone with the same board and you go copy an entire folder and then copy back onto the hdd's the missing files

Pardon my French but I'm feeling kinda hacked off right now. FFS my new installation has lasted barely 3 weeks.
Are you mad with me or something "God"?

Do you recall the missing file name, it was some nv*.dll?

I'm pretty sure my nforce drivers were working. Anyway, my PC can work without the motherboard drivers. I definately haven't uninstalled them. I think this is either a virus of a HDD problem.

The funny thing is it didn't list an actual file. All I got was:

"Windows\System\System32"
Something like that - you get the picture. After the System32 was nothing. No file, nothing.

OK if you have another partition you can do this.

Install win xp on that partition in 40 minutes
then install the drivers
then copy the content of Windows\System\System32 into the other partition in the same place without overwriting anything.
Is it very possible you will have it back the way it was
At least you documents from my docu will be there

Ok. My graphics card drivers don't work. I've tried re-installing but i get an error message saying "Installation Runtime Error".
Then, when I boot, I get the same failed to intialise message. I think Windows is ok, I've tried other install files which work.
It may be a Graphics Card problem.....
