Error message on laptop boot up

Have a Dell Latitude C840 service tag 2x5rp11.
When the laptop boots It has an error message "cannot load the dll CnxtSdk.dll". And right after the another error message pops up reading "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click on OK to terminate the application". I do this and computer seems to resume properly. However this happens everytime I boot the laptop.

Can you help with this.

Thanks

NEED HELP TROUBLESHOOTING "NTLDR is missing" error message


You are looking in the right direction but your best option here is a restore to factory defult. Do you know the procedure for your particular laptop, if not then have a look at the Dell website. Do you have cd or dvd restore disks?
I often get laptops in with similar problems and first step is to take hard drive out and do backup of the docs then restore. I also have a WinXP live Hirens boot cd to boot up with and test everything.

The file <windows root>\system32\hal.dll.


Restart the PC. The hal.dll error could be a fluke.
Check for proper boot order in BIOS. You might see the hal.dll error if the boot order in BIOS is first looking at a hard drive other than your main hard drive.
Note: If you've recently changed your boot order or recently flashed your BIOS, this may be what's causing your problem.
Run Windows XP System Restore from a command prompt. If this doesn't work or you're receiving the hal.dll error message before you're able to complete this process, move on to the next step.
Repair or replace the boot.ini file. This will work if the cause of the problem is actually Windows XP's boot.ini file and not the hal.dll file, which is often times the case.
Note: If repairing the boot.ini does correct the hal.dll issue but the problem reappears after a reboot and you've recently installed Internet Explorer 8 in Windows XP, uninstall IE8. In this specific situation, IE8 could be the root cause of your hal.dll problem.
Write a new partition boot sector to the Windows XP system partition. If the partition boot sector has become corrupt or isn't properly configured, you may receive the hal.dll error.
Recover data from any bad sectors on your hard drive. If the physical part of your hard drive that stores any part of the hal.dll file has been damaged, you're likely to see errors like this.
Restore the hal.dll file from the Windows XP CD. If the hal.dll file is truly the cause of the problem, restoring it from the original Windows XP CD may do the trick.
Perform a repair installation of Windows XP. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.
Perform a clean installation of Windows XP. This type of installation will completely remove Windows XP from your PC and install it again from scratch.
Note: While this will almost certainly resolve any hal.dll errors, it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

You operating system is corrupted meaning that your harddrive has failed or you got a bad virus. Only fix is having the operating system reinstalled and mostly likely that data is lost. Sorry to have to break the news to you and hope that you can get this resolved.
