During the Windows XP startup, you must have encountered some errors messages that do not allow you to log into the operating system. Such errors, often, prove very costly for the system as you may have to take some drastic steps to resolve the problem. These problems can evolve due to any number of reasons. Some of the more prominent ones could be virus infections, abrupt or improper system shutdowns, faulty hardware components, bugs in operating system, etc. You should try to find out the exact reason to rectify the problem. If nothing works out, then you should use a third-party data recovery software to perform safe data recovery.
For instance, consider a situation where you start your Windows XP system. But it fails to start, and an error message is displayed:
“The file C:\windows\system32\c_1252.nls is missing or corrupt”
Such behavior at startup could have happened as the file mentioned in the error message, c_1252.nls, is missing or damaged.
To resolve such startup errors, you should perform the following methods, preferably in the order in which they are given:
Check the hard disk for errors: It may be possible that the hard disk contains some errors, which is causing the problem. To resolve them, you should run Chkdsk tool to check and repair the errors.
Replace missing files: If the mentioned file(s) is/are missing, then you should replace the missing files in the Recovery Console by using Windows XP CD-ROM.
Replace missing files without console: If you are unable to open the Recovery Console, then you should use the emergency CD for Windows 98 to replace the missing files. However, you should keep in mind that this method is applicable only on Windows XP systems with FAT32 file system.
Perform In-Place upgrade: If none of the aforementioned methods succeed, then you should perform an in-place upgrade of Windows XP using the Setup CD. This should resolve the issue.
Having said that, at times these methods are unable to resolve the problem. Also, you may also need to recover the trapped data. For such situations, you should use a third-party data recovery software. Using such data recovery tools makes the data recovery safe and secure by using fast and sophisticated scanning algorithms.
One such software that performs safe data recovery is Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery utility.
