Originally after a diagnostic was run due to slow down and random behavior it showed HD error.
(error code 2000-0142)
Message; Hard Drive 0-s/n 9vpgkhob short shelf unsuccessful
I did some research but was unable to access any of the solutions which included going into "Safe Mode"
During one the many times I did get onto my desktop with internet access I had a system error pop up; "ktmw32.dll is missing"
My pc is about 2-3 yrs old and I never did a OS backup so ordered the discs from Dell.
They came a few days ago but will not work for me.
So now I power up, Dell logo comes up then a few seconds later a box; "Windows Boot Manager"
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1- Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your pc.
2- Choose your language settings
3- Click "Repair your Computer"
Info: The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors.
I have tried to do this but after rebooting with the disc in I get the same message every time.
Any help would be appreciated.
