Assuming a couple of things:
1. Your OS is Windows XP
2. This is the error message you are getting -

Start the computer by using your Windows XP CD-ROM. Press any key to boot from the CD.
After the setup files are finished loading press R to repair using Recovery Console.
When you are in the recovery console, select the installation to log on to (usually number 1), and then press ENTER.

At the recovery console command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
For Uni-Processor systems:
expand <cd-drive>:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ <hd-drive>:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

Do you have a Windows CD that came with your computer? If so do you know how to boot from it by inserting it into the drive and then pressing F12 just after you switch on your PC? If you can do this then you could try the "repair" option from Windows Setup, this might fix your missing PC problem.
Did you install anything on your computer right before this happend to you??? Usually when this Dreaded Blue Screen comes up its a hardware issue, You may have installed Memory, USB, ECT... check that out and remove some of your memory first and see if that helps you out any. try also a F`12 or F8 start. see if that helps you out any, Get back to me if you have any other Questions Thanks Bear001
