From your description it appears that your drive is failing, likely due to bad sectors. To be sure you can check the drive using the free trial version of http://www.hdtune.com/

But I expect you will need data recovery help this a good choice for low cost and fast data recovery. All data recovery work is performed remotely over the Internet from a boot cd that you download and the best part is they just ask for donations: http://FreeDataRecovery.us

Or another reasonably priced choice but you need to ship out the drive is: http://300dollardatarecovery.com

I have an E-Machine desktop PC that is failing to boot. It is running on windows 2000. When it starts booting, it says that one of the files needed for booting is missing. It further tells me to run a...


Windows 2000mag-glass_10x10.gif boot disks allow you to by-pass damaged Windows 2000 operating system files to get your computer up and running in a solid, stable configuration. You simply tell the computer to access the Windows 2000 codes necessary for start-up from your floppy disk drive rather than the hard drive. Creating the set of four boot disks is specific to this version of the operating system
  1. Step 1 Insert the Windows 2000 Professional CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive. Insert a formatted, blank diskette into the floppy disk drive. Have three additional formatted, blank diskettes standing by.
  2. Step 2 Click "Start" at the bottom left corner of your computer screen to open the start-up menu. This lists the start-up actions available for Windows 2000. Select "Run." The program then asks you to designate the drive, program, folder or file you want to open by either typing the destination or clicking "Browse," to select the destination from the Windows 2000 directory.
  3. Step 3 Click the "Browse" button at the bottom of the pop-up window. The PC's hard drivemag-glass_10x10.gif directory window appears.
  4. Step 4 Browse the computer's hard drive directory and select the CD-ROM drive to designate it as the destination you want to open. Click "OK" to open the CD-Rom drive. The folders and files saved on the Windows 2000 CD now appear in the directory format.
  5. Step 5 Select the "Bootdisk" folder. A directory of files appears.
  6. Step 6 Double-click the program file "Makeboot.exe," then click "OK" to launch the Windows 2000 boot disk maker program. The program checks that you have a formatted diskette in the floppy disk drive and then begins to make the boot disk.
  7. Step 7 Watch your screen as the process of making the boot disk progresses. The boot disk for Windows 2000 requires four diskettes. The program cues you to remove the first diskette and insert the second, and so on until all four diskettes are created and the boot disk making process is finished.

The file oregon5.dat is installed in the directory "program files(x86)". It can't be found because the computer is looking for it in "program files" WITHOUT "(x86)"! A different directory altogether.

HOW TO BOOT


If you have access to an external drive enclosure, OR you have a computer you can put the hard-drive from
that machine in temporarily, put the drive in one of them and copy the WIN98 directory to the harddrive.
Once the WIN98 directory is there, you can just install it from there. That is of course if the hard-drive has been
formatted with the /sys command, and set to primary boot drive using FDISK. As far as installing from floppy,..
the floppies haven't been on the market for a LONG time, and if you have them,.. I imagine they've seen better
days. If you HAVE to install from floppy though, use another computer, put in the CD, open the cd using windows
explorer. Once here, click on the WIN98 directory, and locate the files you need ( too many files and directories
to list here ) Seriously the best way would be to use an external drive enclosure ( since it's probably a 2.5" drive
size ) and just copy the whole directory to the drive and forget the floppy idea. It will take MUCH less time.

Missing "imagehlp.dll" error on installation


Uninstalling other makers software may remove a system file which prevents installation of Coolpix drivers from the Nikon View v5.1 CD on Windows 98SE systems. It has been reported that, when connecting a Coolpix camera to a Windows 98SE machine, the hardware wizard will not recognize the appropriate driver; this setup fails because the file "IMAGEHLP.DLL" is missing from the system. Installation will stop with an error message which mentions this file. This problem may be caused by the earlier removal of another makers software from the operating system. To solve the problem, first disconnect the camera then follow these instructions to copy the appropriate file from the Win98SE CD back to the correct directory on your computer: Place the Win98SE CDROM in the CD-ROM drive. From the Start Menu select Run, type in SFC.EXE. Select "Extract a single file". Type in IMAGEHLP.DLL to the field provided. Click start. When the next dialogue box appears click "skip". This dialog box appears: Where e:\WIN98\ should be the Win98SE CD-ROM (your CD-ROM drive may use another letter other than "e"). Copy the file to the same destination shown and a screen will appear showing that "File has been successfully extracted". Next, remove the Win98SE CD-ROM from the CD-ROM drive and replace the Nikon View 5 CD in the CD-ROM drive. Reconnect the camera. The hardware wizard should automatically detect the camera and install the driver from the Nikon View 5 CD.
