Urgent problem. corrupted file, please help

406 5
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.

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.
