How to replace vxd files?


ok, here goes. i was missing a vxd file needed to run windows. instead of reading ahead to my next chapter (A+ certification-duh don't i feel stupid), i decided to jump the cmos (which was password protected by previous unknown user). anyway, i reset to original configurations (later changed to optimal settings). then i reloaded windows 98 through dos. at that time, what i really hadn't realized is that i have 2 hard drives. at this point, the computerhas started booting to drive d instead of c. i didn't mind that so much, either drive, or so i thought was ok - drive c is fat 32, and drive d is just a fat (i think). when it came time to load the sound card drivers, it kept saying that it couldn't locate what was most of the files - vxd's dll's, etc. this was from all - the original cd, the c drive, and i even downloaded from the manufacturer. the computer constantly freezes up in the middle of things - whether it be word, internet, that doesn't matter, and then i have to cold boot it. please - how do i fix this mess i'm in? I am so tired of surfing around and trouble shooting, and class doesn't start again for another week!
