Missing dll, don't have XP CD-only Compaq restore

Hello. I have been having some problems with my laptop and was told to run
sfc /scannow. I did and got the message "Files that are required for Windows
to run properly must be copied to the DLL Cache. Insert your Windows XP Home
edition cd-rom now."

Problem is, I don't have a CD - only a Compaq restore CD. So, I hit cancel.
How do I find out which files are missing and is there any other way to get
them besides the CD (download)?

Hi Rick,

I'm confused. When I got to the Setup folder, the source path read as
C:\Temp\W2k.

What now? I didn't change anything because it didn't match what you said it
should.

Thanks!

If you have a restore CD from your PC manufacturer then you may have to
explore the CD to find the I386 folder.
See:-http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html

Hi,

Does that folder exist on your system? I suspect it does not, and you need
to change it to whatever the actual location of the I386 folder is.

Hello again. Don't mean to bug you so much. Just wanted to let you know I
did change it to C:\ since it was at C:\I386. Didn't work though. I also
changed it at the Windows NT as it said to in the tutorial that S.Sanguta
suggested. I explored my restore cd and couldn't find the I386 file on it to
reinstall. So, I'm thinking I'm out of luck and will have to somehow get a
Windows XP CD. Thanks for all your help!
