Hi, I posted this on another forum but they havn't been any help.
sooo...As a last resort, is there anything I can put on a cd that will format the drive for me ?have struck again ! A mere 5 days since my mum brought her new laptop and I have rendered it un-bootable.
Well, she is a little "upset" so I'm hoping we can fix this.
The OS is XP home. And also of note, the laptop has no floppy disk drive.
So, I was doing a standard disk clean. And I decided to check the box "compressed" files. Well it did say "are safe to delete". But I was feeling sleepy and didn't want to run the battery down. So after a few moments, I clicked cancel and shut the pig down.
Now, the message I see upon trying to start up is as follows : -
"Windows could not start because of an error in the software.
Please report this as :
load needed DLLS for kernel.
Please contact your support person to report this problem"
I tried the included "recovery" disk. And it asks me to put in another disk, not included.
