OS: xp home



I have an old desktop with XP home on it. It refuses to start with the message: system 32\drivers\ntfs.sys. It is missing or corrupt and I need to insert the original disc, which I do not have. Is there a way to download the file to my other computer and load it onto the one that will not start? I have tried everything I can think of to fool it into starting. No dice. Thanks.

You will need an XP CD to fix your computer.
You can try downloading the XP Recovery Console ISO image. Burn the image to CD using IMGBurn in my signature and then boot off of the newly created CD. In the Recovery Console you can type chkdsk /R and press enter. Now type a Y for Yes and restart the computer. This will check you HDD. If it fails, the HDD needs to be replaced.
