When I boot up my laptop I get the following error:
[hr]Windows could not boot up because the following file is missing or corrupt:

\WINDOWS\System32\SYSTEM\SYSTEM.CONF

Insert the Windows installation CD and press "r" at the main screen.[/hr]

I have done all of this, but still, it boots with the same error.

Suggestions?

\WINDOWS\System32\SYSTEM\SYSTEM.CONF

Please check the error again; I think the above filename/pathname is incorrect.

If the real filename in the error is "C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\system", you have a corrupt Registry. Please see this post for an explanation of the error and links to 2 methods for repairing it.

In some cases that's the faster, easier way to go. Glad you got it going again, regardless of the method. :)
