Question about Compaq Presario 900US Notebook
Their is typically 2 reasons to get that message.
1 your system has corrupted some files by being shutdown improperly, virus / spyware, or random microsoft glitch.
2. Your harddrive has devloped bad sectors and cannot read that area of the disk.
Grab your install disk, boot to the "Press any key to boot" when you see it.
then press R for the Restore Console
It may ask what keyboard you want to use, then default to english.
At this point you will see a screen that looks like dos. Type in
chkdsk c: /f /r /x
Once that completes restart and see what you get.
If that does not fix the problem:
You will need to reinstall windows. You can just do a repair install, and that will not delete any files on the machine.
