how would i prevent if my computer just doesn't boot one day? one time my comp said couldn't find some .dll and it never booted. i had to format. how could i prevent this? boot disk maybe if so how do i make one
boot disc is helpful for sure but, If you don't know what you are trying to fix, it will not be of much use. Another great tool is right on the XP disc. The support tools are rather helpful. They won't be a silver bullet, but if you know what you are looking for, you will be able to make most repairs from the recovery console. These should be installed before you crash the OS though.
