please help... I believe I have deleted a file that is necessary for the OS to boot. I am running a windows XP system. I own a hp compaq D530. It was working fine just yesterday and in trying to clean up the junk, must have deleted a driver. I keep getting a message that reads,"system32\drivers\isapnp.sys file missing or corrupt" it also says it can be repaired with original CD-ROM but of course I dont have it nor do I have a back-up disk. Any ideas?
Blew888, Thanks for the tip,and the link. I think that would be a great idea. Its just that I am not able to download the file. I am stuck on the black boot screen where it says " start windows normally or use last known good config." Neither of them are working and I cant get past that point. But i do appreciate your help. If you can assist further, please let me know.
