Ive done this before with some luck, but it will take a repairman to do it. Take the hard drive from your computer and set it up as a slave and install it as a D: drive in another computer and you should be able to get to the file. This take someone that knows what he is doing, but is not that difficult.I would use this procedure as a last resort.

Msvcrt.dll error message(Msvcrt.dll error message("the procedure entry except handler4 common could not be located dinamic link library msvcrt.dll")


Two possible solutions.
Roll back system with System Restore. Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore. XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

How To Repair Your Operating System


A Repair Install will replace the system files with the files on the XP CD used for the Repair Install. It will leave your applications and settings intact, but Windows updates will need to be reapplied. Here is how to run an OS Repair using the Operating System CD in XP, Vista, or 7:


Windows XP

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below:

3. Press ENTER to start the Windows Setup.
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup.
6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.


Windows Vista

If you have a Windows Vista installation disc, you need to restart (boot) your computer using the installation disc. If you do not restart your computer from the disc, the option to repair your computer will not appear.

Here is a step by step picture guide.

If you have a Windows Vista installation disc:

1. Insert the installation disc.
2. Restart your computer.
3. Click the Start button, click the arrow next to the Lock button, and then click Restart.
4. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.


Windows 7

1. If a startup problem is detected, Startup Repair will start automatically and try to fix the problem.
2. If the problem is severe enough that Startup Repair doesn't start on its own and you can't access the System Recovery Options menu on your computer's hard disk, you can get to the menu and start Startup Repair by using the Windows installation disc or a system repair disc that you created earlier.

NTLDR is missing is displayed when i turn on the computer


The "NTLDR is missing", error displays very shortly after the computer is first started; after the Power On Self Test (POST) is complete. Windows XP might only initially load when the NTLDR error message appears. Causes of this error message include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors, an outdated BIOS, and damaged or loose IDE cables.

My computer displays error messages such as " Verifying DMI pool data, Boot from CD" upon startup


It's not necassarily an error when that pops up. It usually depends on the Motherboard. I know that Biostar P4M80-M7A / P4M800-M7A all do that on their own but will boot just fine after that message goes away. It's offering you an option to boot from a cd. You can change it to silent boot in BIOS if you don't want that message to appear.

When i turn my computer on, it ask me to pick xp home edition or it will pick the first one on the list. I wan to know why it is doing this


This will occurs when the Computer did not shut down properly or restart automatically or a dual Operating System installed in the Computer.

To resolve this:

1. Click on Start -> Control Panel -> System.

Or, Click on Start, right click on the My Computer option and select the option Properties.

b. Time to display list of Recovery options when needed.

Computer always shuts down during downloads


This may be because your downloader software's setting has been configured to shutdown after download completes. Check settings
If this is not due to settings then your computer is infected. You need to reinstall your Windows OS.
