I have 4 yr old HP computer. Originally it used windows ME and was upgraded for HP home. It worked fine for years. I have not used in months. Today when turned I got the following error:

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:


I no longer can find the orginal startup disk to repair/replace

I would appreciate any suggestions.

I have other PC start up disks but they are not HP.
