When I try to do recovery, two messages pop up. One says cannot load C:\minint\system32\Res256\Btn.bmp and the other reads C:\minit\system32\Res256\banner.cmp


Looks like its may be an issue with a graphics matter. Since .bmp is a graphic image. But that does not assist you does it. Now here is what I would do in a situation such as yours. I would completely format that drive using a format program such as D/Ban or a free format program that will completely load at the start up then erase everything on your disk. Then I would try the process all over again to see if this solves the issue. If that does not solve the issue then I would get another recovery disc from the factory because that one may be faulty. Just a suggestion you can get Killdisk freeware click here.

Turn on my computer works perfect then a sytem32 error occures then crashes to the blue screen(PAGE_FAULT_IN _NONPAGED_AREA) and motherboard makes a weird beep sound kind of like a bird.


Try to change the memory modules...if there is two inset 1 at a time and boot ur system to check if u still face the problem....if not try borrow a memory module..and check....it looks like its the memory in your case but if you u still have problem having verified that its not the memory...



First of all, you need to understand what "System32 corrupt or missing" actually means.
System32 is a vital part of your PC. You can look at it as the heart and brain of the Windows operating system without which, your computer would not be working at all. System32 is usually located in the C: drive under C:WindowsSystem32 or C:Winntsystem32 and is usually hidden in order to prevent any accidental alterations by the user.

Reboot your PC and press F8 during the booting sequence until you get into the boot menu. Select "Boot Using Last Known Good Configuration". Your PC will now try to startup using a configuration that has worked in the past. If you are still facing the System32 corrupt or missing error, you could try the following but you have to be careful. In case you are not comfortable messing with your system files, skip this part and continue reading the "Quick and Easy Fix" paragraph.
Use the Console to Fix the "System32 Corrupt or Missing" Error

Insert your Windows XP Recovery disk and reboot your PC. If you don't have a recovery disk skip this paragraph. Select the Recovery Console and type the following into the console.
This will recover your windows system but you need to be extremely careful that you are typing correct commands or everything gets even worse.
md tmp

copy C:windowssystem32configsystem C:windowstmpsystem.bak

delete C:windowssystem32configsystem

copy C:windowsrepairsystem C:windowssystem32configsystem

Quick and Easy Fix

In case you don't feel comfortable messing with your windows system; I suggest using a Windows System Repair tool which will scan your System and list all system errors before attempting to fix it. Besides solving the System32 corrupt or missing error, a system repair tool will ultimately speed up your System as it cleans and reorganizes your registry and deletes unnecessary files.
A commonly used tool is Errorsmart which is available for free at http://www.SpeedUpMyPc.Info Before re-installing windows or messing with your system, give Errorsmart a try and check if it is able to fix system32 corrupt or missing error

keep me posted

How do I...


NTOSKRNL.EXE is missing or corrupt.

Related errors:

Below is a listing of the full error message that may be related to this error.

Windows NT could not start because the below file is missing or corrupt:
C:\Winnt\System32\Ntoskrnl.exe

Cause:
Keyboard issue
Miscellaneous corruption
Corrupt boot.ini file.
Missing boot.ini file.
Missing or corrupt ntoskrnl.exe file.
Windows NT installed on a partition bigger then 7.8GB
Corrupted hard disk drive or severely corrupted Windows.
Solution:
Keyboard issue
This issue has also been known to be caused by a short in the ground wire in the keyboard cable. Make sure this is not the cause of your error by replacing the keyboard with a different keyboard or simply just disconnecting the keyboard from the computer.

Miscellaneous corruption
Before trying any of the below recommendations it's recommend that you attempt to load the last known good configuration. Additional information about doing this can be found on document CH000626.

Corrupt boot.ini file
This issue is often caused when the boot.ini is missing or improperly configured. This issue often arises after a user has recently added or removed an operating system on the computer or added or removed hard disk drives in the computer.
Make sure the line pointing to the operating system and it's drive and partition is properly configured in the [boot loader] and [operating systems] section. Additional information about boot.ini can be found on document CH000492.

Missing boot.ini file
Microsoft Windows XP users:
If the boot.ini is severely corrupted or missing a user running Microsoft Windows XP can rebuild the boot.ini to resolve this issue. Additional information about rebuilding the boot.ini can be found on document CH000648.

Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 2000 users:

To restore the original boot.ini file in Microsoft Windows NT or Windows 2000 you will need an ERD and follow the below steps. If you do not have an ERD you will be unable to follow these steps.
Boot the computer with your Windows NT three setup diskettes or the Windows 2000 setup disc.
In the setup menu, type R to start the repair.
When prompted for the ERD diskette insert the diskette and inspect the startup environment.
Missing or corrupt ntoskrnl.exe file
If the ntoskrnl.exe file is corrupt or missing this can also generate the error. To restore this file follow the below steps.
Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD. Note: If you have a recovery CD or a restore CD and not a Microsoft Windows XP CD it is likely the below steps will not resolve your issue.
Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key.
In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console.
Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password.
Type expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32
You will then be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file type Y and press enter to overwrite the file.
Type exit to reboot the computer.
Windows NT installed on a partition bigger then 7.8GB
If you are running Microsoft windows NT 4.0 on a partition larger than 7.8GB this issue can occur if the boot files are located outside this limitation. When this error occurs your computer will have the

error message as shown below.

OS Loader v4.01
Disk I/O error status=00000001
Windows NT could not start because the below file is missing or corrupt: winnt\system32\Ntoskrnl.exe
Please reinstall a copy of the above file.

If your system partition is larger than 7.8GB you will need to delete the partition and recreate the partition to 7.8GB or less. Additional information about this issue can be found on Microsoft KB Q224526.

Corrupted hard disk drive or severely corrupted Windows
Attempt to check the hard disk drive for any errors by running the chkdsk error. To do this follow the below steps.

Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD. Note: If you have a recovery CD or a restore CD and not a Microsoft Windows XP CD it is likely the below steps will not resolve your issue.
Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key.
In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console.
Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password.
Once at the recovery console type chkdsk /r
Once completed type exit and see if issue is resolved.
If after trying all of the above steps you are still encountering the same issue it's likely that Windows is severely corrupted and it is recommended you attempt to reinstall Windows. Additional information about erasing the computer and starting over can be found on document CH000186.
Finally, if during the Windows installation you encounter errors it's likely that your hard disk drive is bad.

2. Press F10 repeatedly at boot screen to load the Recovery Menu
3. Press R for the recover console
4. Select "Advanced Options"
5. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt
6. type "cd h:\" to enter the root directory
7. type "dir /w" to view the directory in wide view
8. open the master.log file (or something along those lines), this should bring up a prompt asking you what program to open it with, you should only be able to select notepad.
9. open the file with notepad and when it appears select the File>Open
10. in the file name box type in "C:\hp\bin\configcheck\run.py"
11. once the file opens clear the contents and select save as then save the file as run.p_
12. close the notepad program
13. delete the original file by typing "del C:\hp\bin\configcheck\run.py"
14. reboot system

After a reboot the windows screen might flash a few times and take a little longer to load, be patient and you should be able to continue with the windows set-up without that damned code purple error message.

I have an Emachine and the disk drive won't work a box pops up and says at the top RunDLL and inside it says Error loading C:Windows/system32/gzmrotate.dll


RunDll is a system file. Error loading C:Windows/System32 is also system files. Just do a repair---not a recovery. The repair option is after you have to hit F8 then choose "R" for repair. This should take care of it. If not it may be your hard drive in which case you would replace it and have to do a full reinstall.

When i load the gateway system recovery disc i get line 20101 of the inf file \minit\boot is invalid setup cannot continue


Sounds like you have a damaged restore disk. Look at it under a bright light, and see if there are any scratches in the disk. You might be able to clean the disk (always clean from the inside out, never in a circle).

Bios could not be loaded error code


Sure , you need to change the battery in your motherboard. Often it looks like a silver coin. What happens is that your bios setting are reset to default each time you restart PC, before updating bios (that is the solution from hp that you are trying), change the battery.
