alrighty, i got a comp that i was restoring last night, trying to find CS:CZ, i deleted it earlier..i went back about 2 weeks, then i said, oh well. ill just reinstall it later, i turned the comp off and went to sleep, next i wake up, and when i boot it says this:

Windows could not start because the following file is miss or corrupt:
\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM32\\CONFIG\\SYSTEM

You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM

Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.

ok now ive seen a few guides on how to recover like

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545/en-us

but when i set my BIOS to boot off of the windows setup cd-rom it says
To boot off of cd-rom press any key . . . .
but i cant seem to press any keys until the 5 period point pops up and goes back to the error page. this really sucks.

EDIT: oh and by the way , i set all my settings back to default, like voltages, fsb from 250 to 200mhz. it still wont boot.

During POST, try hitting F8 repeatedly as if you were hitting delete to get into bios.

A menu should pop up for boot options like safe mode, etc. Choose "Last known working configuration"

Is it a USB keyboard? If so, do you have an adapter to plug it into the PS/2 port? Try that, or get a PS/2 keyboard and plug that in. That should at least solve your keyboard problem. After that, try the recovery cd.
