|I have an HP Pavilion 750N Desktop running Windows 95. I can’t give you any exact OS info CPU or RAM info because I don’t remember it and I can’t get log onto the computer. I recently removed the hard case and cleaned the fan of all the dust that had built up. I used my small crevice tool on the vacuum and cleaned it out. I have done this before with no problem. Now when I turn it on, it won't boot up, it acts like it is going to boot, goes through the blue "HP" screen and then gives me the message... "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System\DRIVERS\pci.sys You can attempt to repair this file by starting windows using the original Setup CD-ROM. Select 'r ' at the first screen to start repair." So, I pressed 'r' at the first screen and it acts like it wants to start up; I get a blue screen with "HP" on it and then back to the above message.|
Okay, so I put the original setup CD in and nothing, so I read a thread here that said to start it up and press F2 or F10, so I did that and now I get the message... "An unexpected error (536854784) occurred at line 1768 in d:xpclient\base\boot\setup\arcdisp.c Press any key to continue" When I press any key, it goes back to the original error message.
I would dearly appreciate any help that someone could offer, I am at my wits end. I know, I know, the first thing is, that I need a new computer, but if I could afford one, I would have already done that. I am using a different computer to ask this question.
Thank you, Cynthia
