  I have an issue with my computer.  I can log on once and a while, but mostly I get the message that the windows/system32/config/system is either missing or corrupt.  I have tried everything I can think of including switching hard drives and reformatting my pc to factory specs, but it hasn't accomplished anything.  I was wondering if there was anything I could do to try and remedy this, because it makes my computer nothing more than a very expensive paperweight.

Lets first rule out a bad hard drive

Find the manufacturer of your hard drive and run their Hard Drive Diagnostics Utility.

I finally managed to get my computer to function long enough to run both of Maxtor's diagnostics.  Both came back without any problems, saying that my hard drive was a-ok.

Been there done that at least twenty times.  Those steps from Microsoft seem to help for about a day, if that, and then the problem returns.

You said you switched hard drives. Did you also renew your IDE/SATA cables?
I also think it could be a problem with the PSU.Try another power cable, or another PSU.
Plus the IDE/SATA drivers. Make sure they are fully up to date according to your motherboard chipset specs.

If all that isn't working out, I'd change motherboard. It would sound like a short circuit.
