    Unhappy missing or corrupt ntoskrnl

    I frequently get this message on restarting my computer. Any idea what causes it.
    There is nothing wrong with the file, As I am eventually able to get the computer starting. In the past I copied new versions, reinstalled XP etc, and did all kind of 'fixing' these days I just wait and eventually the computer will restart O.K.

    So it looks more like a harware problem. Any ideas?

    Default Re: missing or corrupt ntoskrnl

    Click start then run and then type sfc /scannow. There is a space after sfc .

    This will run the windows file checker it will ask for your install cd if it finds anything amiss.
    have a look thru these also
