    How do I system restore my Vostro 1000 Dell Series?
    « on: February 15, 2009, 10:28:42 AM »
    See thing is, I was doing my English report on the computer and suddenly it shuts down completely. So i hit the power button again. Then the blue screen comes up and says,

    STOP:c0000218 {Registry File Failure}
    The Registry cannot load the hive (File):
    /SystemRoot/System32/Config/Software
    Or its log or alternate.
    It is Corrupt, absent, or not writable.
    Beginning dump of Physical memory
    Physical memory dump complete.
    Contact your system administrator Etc.

    I can't do anything. Can't get into windows...Nothing :'(...Any advice? 
    did i mention that when it hits the blue screen I cant do a thing.

    Before you go for repair install, you may try one easier step...

    1. If you have Windows CD, follow the steps from here: http://icrontic.com/articles/repair_windows_xp

    2. If you don't have Windows CD...
    Download Windows Recovery Console: http://www.thecomputerparamedic.com/files/rc.iso
    Download, and install free Imgburn: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download
    Using Imgburn, burn rc.iso to a CD.
    Boot to the CD...let it finish loading.
    When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    Then, follow the steps from here: http://icrontic.com/articles/repair_windows_xp, starting below this picture on page 1:
