missing file. In this case I think it MIGHT require you to put in SP2
disk or be prepared to direct it to SP2 location. Usually i386 folder.
Here's how IF you're SURE that DVD drive is OK( check Device Mgr.):
To correct damaged system files , try running System File Checker.
If XP, based on an on board back-up copy of XP(read only) used to correct files. If copy is corrupted, it may tell you to insert XP or SP2/3(if patch applied) disk or to indicate location of SP2/3 info to get new,
clean copy inserted. Good to have disk at hand. To Run SFC:
Left click on My Computer(open)
Right click on "C" or your OS drive if another letter.
Left click Properties and then click Tools Tab.
Left click on "Error Checking"> Check Now.
Left click to enter check mark in "Auto Fix System File Errors"
Left click on "Start".
Computer will have to reboot to begin repairs. Restart computer.
Just leave alone (you're locked out anyway) 'til process finished.
My operating system is xp pro sp2, my dvd drive is not recognized anymore, not in device manager, not in bios, which used to be my first boot device. I have ran mbam, and avg, nothing found by either. Someone suggested I try xp-cd-dvd-fix.exe, and I did, but when I click on the icon I get an error message as follows....XP-CD-DVD-fix.exe-unable to find component....
This application failed to start because MSVBVM60.DLL was not found.
reinstalling the application may fix the problem.
The problem is I never got it installed because of this error.
