    I got the /windows/system32/config/system corrupt error message today...i got it before and fixed it temporarily...but this time i got it and i formated after before fixing...after the format with the windows cd it said the drive was corrupt or damage... i didn't touch it or anything before so it cant be physical...and when i used the western digital disk that came with it to test for errors...it said there werent any...

    I am sending in my motherboard to be replaced but when i get it back i will need to fix this proble so i can try and get everything to work fine...

    Anyone know whats wrong with it?

    which version of Windows are you using and did you perform any upgrades on the machine?

    Howdy BumontheRun...

    From what it looks like you are running XP ( in Nt and W2K it will be winnt\system32\config, unless you changed it during the install)...

    The windows\system32\config\system is the load of the System hive in the registry, if it's corrupt you might want to try this from Microsoft...
