Partmgr.sys Error When Formatting With Xp Pro


Recommended Posts

I get this error when i try to do full format ,


A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

the problem seems to be caused by the following file: partmgr.sys






well i dropped my emachines laptop just a short distanc of like 3 feet on to a soft carpet with it open and running. picked it up and continued doing what i was doing on it. and it was fine until i shut it down and went to bed, woke up and booted it and it would not boot xp, so i tried to fix it by repairing and it failed, so tried to format it, and got this error.


so does that mean my harddrive is screwed?


its a Toshiba HDD
