Insert the Windows OS CD original and then reboot your machine ... after you will see a message "press any key to boot from CD" .. do that. Then if U have Windows 2000 Pro CD or XP Pro CD or XP CD whatever, it will install all the necessary OS files and related drivers into Memory and then will try to dedect the INSTALLED/ CURRENT version of Windows OS on your system / on C: drive. Then you can decide whether to REPAIR or INSTALL the Windows OS again. So choose REPAIR option and then it will ask u for the Administrator's Password if SET for C: ... just enter password if you have set up earlier other wise just hit [enter] Windows OS will get the necessary missing or currupted file(s) from CD drive and then will tell you to reboot again. Then remove Windows CD from drive and then reboot ... Now If things are normal then your machine will BOOT UP normally and will run. If U have problems even after repairing your windows ... please observe the problem what happens after what and write down and come back and ask the problem again ... We will try to work something out again ..... till then GOOD LUCK :))
