Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

When ever i turn on my computer it tell me that it is missing a windows file. the other issue i have it that i cant find my insignia restore DVD...Is there any thing i can do other than order another Restore DVD.

Answers :

The missing file is most likely due to corruption of the file.\015\012This can occur when sectors on your hard drive go back. SO any attempt to reinstall the file would merely install it at its present location on the hard drive.\015\012
\015\012The cheapest and easiest route to fix this issue would be as you have already stated. Purchase the recovery DVD from insignia they generally run about $10\015\012
\015\012When you do a recovery install or clean install. During the install process the hard drive is checked for bad sectors and they are marked so as not to install anything on those sectors.\015\012
\015\012Manufactures of hard drives always include more space on hard drives then they actually show when you buy them because they know that they will have bad sectors
