    Power the laptop off completely and turn it back on. As it starts, tap the F8 key repeatedly until you get a choice to boot into Safe Mode. This will load it with minimal drivers. I am a little hesitant to offer this advice as I feel more strongly that your OS has been corrupted and needs to be reinstalled. The Safe Mode try is just to ascertain that it isn't a hardware/driver related problem. I am assuming it was okay up until this point? Let me know the results. I can get back to you quickly.

Imedia system32 error


okay this is a confusing post/question. you can always start a machine from bio regardless of what operating system you're running. if you're attempting to boot from the disc, tap f12 @ boot until you get a one time boot menu and choose the dvd/cd drive. that should load the setup file. the windows disc does not load setup onto the hard drive. if you're running xp when you have the option hit 'r' to repair the computer, when you get into command prompt type sfc /scannow. this will search and fix all system files. you can also try chkdsk c: /r this will fix any errors in the file structure. good luck

When i start my laptop it shows that error loading operating system with black screen and it cannot boot window xp cd????????????


This means that the system files are corrupt or that the system can not locate the device with the operating system on it.
Boot your laptop while pressing F2 and go to the System BIOS. In the BIOS look for boot order or boot sequence. Then select the HARD Disk Drive to be the first booting device and let the CD Drive be the second one and press F10 to save and exit. Observe the results, If it gives you an error message again, try to go back to the BIOS and load Default System settings and restart your laptop again.

If you try all this and you still have the same problem, then organize an XP CD and change the boot device to CD Drive. This will let your laptop boot from the CD. When the CD loads, press enter and after accepting the license agreement (by pressing F8) select "R" to repair your operating system.
NOTE: Do not press "R" as soon as the CD finishes loading because this will induse the Automated Repair, and that is not what we want here....
Man, this will work you out of your trouble. Good luck

The best you can try is to remove the external HDD and see if computer boots..

If it does, you know where the problem is..

If it doenst, reboot computer, start tapping F8, if you get advance boot options, try to boot computer with Save Mode, Perform system restore from save mode.

If the above doesnt work, you need to perform repair installtion of Windows XP.

Error message "load needed dlls for kernel"


1. 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. 2. 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. 3. In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console. 4. Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password. 5. Type expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32 6. You will then be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file type Y and press enter to overwrite the file. 7. Type exit to reboot the computer.

"error loading operating system"


Sounds like your Windows XP installation failed. Run the XP install again making sure to delete the existing partition and then create a new partition. You could also have a bad drive out of the box.

Explorer.exe Application error in Windows XP Professional SP2


This could be a memory problem or a problem with the OS (XP). If you can boot the original XP CD like your doing an install then it's not a memory problem more the likely. Can you boot your XP CD?
