I have always been a supporter of windows. I Have never had anything major go wrong with using Windows. Not until I started to use XP. If someone ask me what o/s to get I sure in hell wouldn't recommend XP. I am trying to load up into windows and I am getting couldn't load up /windows/system32/config/system Please insert orignal disk and "r" for repair. This is the 3rd time this has done this too me since owning XP. Both times I had to reformat my system. So it looks like I have to go ahead and reformat again. I been all over the net looking for a solution and haven't been able to find one. What happened this time. I was playing some Quake3, and the server crashed so I exited out of Q3, which for some strange reason locked my system. I waited about 5 minutes and it didn't recover itself so I had to hit reset. Now I am hear posting on my other computer which also locked up so this is my 2nd attempt at a post. Sorry about spelling and grammer I am so hot right now its not funny.
