    C drive is missing in windows XP on acer Notebook

    I am using acer Notebook running with Windows XP. One day i tried to access Youtube.While typing that in the address bar I found some alert messages from my system. I read those messages and came to know that my system is with virus. Then I did a compete scan with the Anti-virus.It detected almost 12 errors.I deleted those viruses and it asked me to boot the OS.So i inserted Windows XP CD to bootup. At the time of booting,the screen stays off with black and it does not allows me to bootup. So I dropped Installing process and logged into the system where I found the C drive missing in the system and at the same time the OS files moved onto D drive. I do not know how this happens. Please help me out by giving the right path to clear this issue.

    The virus have corrupted the Windows XP files so that the Anti-virus shown you a message “Needs to bootup”. You need to Re-install the OS with the genuine Windows XP copy. Insert the CD onto the disk drive and start installing by following the steps in it. At one of the place,the screen will show you the Partitions drive that are in the system.Select the C drive and click Repair radio button.This will Repair the OS files present it in the C drive.Once it done repairing the system,Select Format with NTPS to re-install the XP. This will format the C drive with Windows Xp files.You also need to select the D drive and select format which will delete all the files in it.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.........

    1.This problem occurs when your Windows XP OS is not installed correctly in your system.

    2.Or you may be installed the OS files in the Local Disk. So you can try to restore the Local Disk:C.

    3.Try to troubleshoot your computer so you can fix your problem.

    4.Or you have not formatted all the drives while formatting so the virus may be still present in your computer.

    5.Try to repair your computer by inserting the Windows XP CD in your computer.

    Have a nice day..............
