cng.sys error after system restore


My laptop keeps getting a message on startup about a corrupted 'cng.sys' error.......and then it won't boot.

I dont have a recovery cd as this is an old work laptop.

However, i've taken the hard-drive out and trid to repair as an external drive on another laptop, i used 'chkdsk /r'.......but i still have the problem.

has anyone any other suggestions? thanks!
