    I have a HP 4150 laptop with Windows 2000 on it
    The laptop will not complete boot sequence...it gives an error in Config.sys file located in C:windows\system
    It says it can be repaired by running the Cd again and choosing the repair option
    Why would the config.sys file go bad?? What would cause it???
    Is there a way to fix it without running the Windows 2000 Cd???
    If I do have to run the cd to fix, will it delete all of my data????

    CONFIG.SYS is normally located in the root of C: for W9x O/S versions, it's actually not used for W2K. FWIW, I don't even have a CONFIG.SYS in the WINNT\SYSTEM directory on my machine.
