32-bit disk drive failure

   I am running windows 3.11 on a 486-33.  This is a Local area net. at work.  
    Due to the IT setup, the computer does not boot directly to windows; it first asks for a system login.  Whether you login or not, (even if it attaches you to the system), you must next type in "win" to start windows.
    After typing in "win", the screen goes to the windows logo, and then to a black screen with this message;

"The Microsoft Windows 32-bit disk driver (WDCTRL) validation failed at phase 03,3F"

"To continue starting Windows without using the 32-bit disk driver, press any key"  (Minus Quotes).

Can anyone help me with this?  This is a company computer and as it is a 'cast-off' that this area only got because nobody else wanted it, getting the company to repair or replace it is at the very least, slow and/or unlikly.

Any help would be appreciated.    wish2know

I don't know whether this is an easy or hard question.  So i'm starting at easy.  If you don't think so, let me know.
