Exclamation windows can't start because the file is missing or corrupt: SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\NTFS.sys

Hi, i tried microsofts suggestion of renaming it to ntfs.old, then recopying it from the "disk" to c:\windows\system32\drivers.

recovery console came installed on my computer, so i did
"copy d:\i386\ntfs.sys c:\windows\system32\drivers"
it copied it back into it, so when i checked "dir c:\windows\system32\drivers" both "ntfs.old" and "ntfs.sys" were there.

i typed exit and my pc rebooted and i had the same ERROR.


my pc is a compaq presario s6500nx


before having this error i had the same error except instead of SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\NTFS.SYS it was SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ISAPNP.SYS

i fixed that error the same way and it worked, so i am confused
as soon as i fixed the ISAPNP.SYS, i rebooted and the new error came up.

I have been locked out of my pc since Friday!! PLEASE HELP!

sorry for the length of post


THanks in advance!

MMM, I think the HDD driver files are corrupt. I quite agree with peterhuang913, but a format would be better if you ask me.
