Sorry if I am posting under the wrong category but did not know where is\npost. Now I know this has been posting before but I am have a different\nproblem. Here we go\n\nFirst off This is a HP Pavilion DV2000\n\nI just installed windows vista on it. Everything was fine. So when I\nwent to shut me laptop down for the night it said it had to install\nupdates. (1of72) So I let it do its thing. When I wake up in the morning\nto turn it on I get windows failed to load because the system reg file\nis missing or corrupt- Status: 0xc00000e9\n\n\nIt i will not let me start up in any of the safe modes( all 3). I try\nto boot from the cd. When i do so I get the windows is loading files.\nThe load bar fills up then nothing happens. Just a blank gray screen.\nSo i try to do a hard drive test. and it fails. Can someone please guide\nme on what to do. I need to use this laptop for school and with out it I\nam F**ked. Im stuck and dont know what to do. HELP!!!
