Default Win Xp Help!!!!

ok, i started my comp when i came home from skool, everything was goin fine, and then it says, windows cannont start because _________ file is missing or corrupt, i cant remember which file it said, so is there a way to scan my computer to check for missing/ corrupt files?

by the way, i went down to get the xp cd (which isnt a good copy) and i put it in, then restarted, i didnt go to set up screen, windows just started like normal, im guessing it was booting the file from teh cd? or could it be the hdd is misreading?
