    The pagefile being on a different drive is not a problem as long as the OS knows where it is, and you havn't "moved" the file manually somehow.

    No pagefile on your Sys partition will not give you a memory dump in case of a BSOD, not a big problem.

    What do you mean by

    I did Use defrag and chenge the paratition befor the problem accer
    Well defrag is obvious but "change partition" ??? What did you do ?

    Have you tried Last Known Good Config or Safe Mode ?

        I think you should image your drive using something like Ghost.

        Re-install XP, then recover your stuff using Ghopst explorer or similar.

        You could also try a non-destructive repair.
