Why wont my computer boot normally?
When ever I boot up my Windows XP computer it says "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER." I have no idea what this means. Can someone please help me. Thanks.

Your sentence is normally indicating towards the database application problem with your computer. I suggest you to repair it as database problem.

It sounds like a major component in the operating system is broken. You will need a tech to repair that for you. It sounds like the master boot record is corrupt.

Ps,

It's time for an upgrade. Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP after April 2014. There is already a major attack going on against XP users. Microsoft is trying to resolve it, but only for five more months.

Check fro USB drives that are plugged into the computer, or CDs that are in the CD ROM drive, or a floppy disk in the floppy drive (if you have one). These can cause a computer to try to boot off of a device other than the hard drive. If all of the above are not the problem, then you probably have a bad hard drive, or a hard drive with a corrupted boot sector. It could also be that your BIOS settings got corrupted. Go into the BIOS and check the boot device order. Make sure that the Hard drive is listed as a boot device.

Probably system32 decided to die on you. if you have the Windows XP Disc that came with your computer, insert it in.
if you don't... god.... Try putting in a new Windows disc and see if that works.
if not, buy a new computer.
