    Hi Guys
    I have little problem with XP.
    The system is not booting any more. Is there is any way so I restore the registry from the C: prompt.
    The system restore utility is not working and it is failing to get the system back to a good working condition.
    thanks...

    If you have a XP Install CD you can use the Repair option. Boot using the XP CD and several screens into the install a Repair option will be presented, which you enter: R

    Hi Dan O
    Thanks for your help. I tried to repair through the XP cd but it didn't work. Any more ideas?

    Did the repair run smoothly or did you receive errors?

    Can you boot the PC with a floppy boot disk, such as with a Windows 98SE Startup Diskette? If you don't have one you can download one from: www.bootdisk.com

    If you can boot it with a floppy type: CHKDSK C:

    It will scan the hard drive for corruption.
