I am trying to get my old dell 4300 series to work. When I turn it on it tells me. Windows could not start because the following file is either missing or corrupt.
Then when I go into the windows setup using the f12 key right when the windows first starts it asks for a password. I can not remember the password. Is there anyway to fix this. Also If I need a whole new Windows XP disk. I do not have one. I am wondering if there is anyway to get the whole XP file somewhere online and burn it to a DVD? I do have a CD. It says Dell Optiplex Resource CD. But it says for drivers
and utilities already installed on your computer.
Diagnostics and utilities
Is there anyway to fix this at all.
I have installed a new HDD on the computer I still have the same old HDD it originally had. But I put another one in.
It is a Dell 4300 series. Year 2003
