HELP: Dell Computer with registry issue?
Hi, I am trying to help my dad out and wanted to get some feedback as I am not a computer guru. He has a dell machine which appears to have a registry issue. When you can get the computer to boot up it has a message that says one of the system32 is missing or something along those lines. When it does not boot, the power button usually just blinks yellow instead of solid green as it normally would. I am not sure if that could also be a hardware issue?
Scenario: Data that he has on the machine is not backed up, so data integrity for what is on the machine is critical. First question: If the computer does not boot is there a way to repair the registry, assuming that is the problem? Second: Can I hook his hard drive up to a system that I built as a slave drive and access the files that he needs to preserve?
Thank you very much in advance
