the computer is a

hp pavilion 8600
Windows 98
intel pentinum III 500mhz
128mb sdram (100mhz)
PCI card
some Nvidia TNT card
WD 36.56 GB (40GB) HD

i turn it on and it says a certain file is missing during startup. the extentsion is really weird, like .vxn or something and it says the '.\iosubsys' folder is missing.

i have 2 recovery cds to restore everything back to factory condition but when i insert them i try to format and recover or just recover and then it freezes.

i ran a test on the hardware and it says the IDE boot sector is bad. it said the partitions were overlapping causing a error.

how do i fix this?

thanks.

Can you get into Windows, safe mode, or the command prompt? If you can get into Windows, before you do anything else, I suggest that you backup all your important files.

Just curious, was the name of the missing file Vmm32.vxd? Many people have had issues that involved that file.
