Thank you, Hamluis.
I wish I could run chkdsk/r. However, when I turn my laptop on, within just a few seconds a black screen comes up telling me that my ntfs.sys file is either missing or corrupt and that I need to insert my setup cd. So in essence, my computer is dead. I never get to a functioning screen from which I can do anything. And, as I mentioned above, I do not have the original setup cd. Is there anything I can do in this situation? Does Microsoft have anyway to download a copy of a setup cd or perhaps just the missing ntfs.sys file?
