I hope you've got a Windows XP installation CD handy because
you're going to need it. Take a look at this article:

What it comes down to is that you're going to have to boot into
the Recovery Console and copy that file from your installation CD
to the C:\Windows\System32 folder on your laptop.

If none of those options helped, then you may have to try a
repair installation. Take a look here for how that's done:
