    the proper recovery screen comes up but then a windows box with a red dot with a white X is there with the error 04194304 c:\minint\system32\res256\banner.bmp with the option of "ok" or just the black X at the upper right hand of the box. if you do either one the machine restarts

    Does it' say anything else?

    What happens?

    Do you have any choices or does it just stop?

With the Recovery Disk in the DVD drive, just go and do a complete drive wipe and reinstall.

Cannot boot up windows xp or do system recovery

It's easy Megan, just chill, lol!

Look at the back of the computer next to the Windows product key, or up on the side of the computer tower, for the white Service Tag.
In the tag write down what it states next to S/N.

This is the Serial Number.

(DO NOT post on here. Only give to an authorized HP representative)

Now contact HP Support, and ask for the Restoration Disk.
(HP bought out Compaq a long time ago)

In the USA the disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

In the US call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Outside the US use HP Support Worldwide,

When you get the disk, turn your computer on, and put the disk in the optical drive's tray. (CD/DVD drive)
When asked choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

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.

C:\minint\system32\restore.log mising

Restore points are located in C:/Windows/system32/restore.
You have an unusual error message which talks about C:/minint folder. Seems like this is a virus issue. It would be better if you run virus scan for your computer.
Also run a system utility software RegInOut to refresh your PC.

It seems that there is an virus on your computer try the below steps

Download and install: HiJackThis.

(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders or Desktop. A good place to make a folder would be in My Documents, as this is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)

Then doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Do A System Scan And Save Log". Make sure all Windows and Browsers are closed.
When the scan is finished, best to save your text file in the same folder as where you put HiJackthis.

Create a New Topic and include a fresh HJT log in the HiJackThisLog Help Forum and Copy/Paste the info from your saved Hijackthis log file into your new topic.

A Moderator/ Security Team Analyst will give you instructions.

I cant start my computer because system32\driver\isanpn.sys is missing or corrupt

You need to replace that missing or corrupt system file. If you don't have your disk, you can borrow someone else's Windows XP disk (SP2) because you will need an XP disk to access the recovery console to replace isanpn.sys file.

Here's a link to the full steps on Microsoft's website to go to the recovery console and replace that file:

Hi uplate

the image should be called oemlogo.bmp

rename this file to oemlogo-old.bmp
open up "oemlogo.bmp" using paintbrush and save again as oemlogo.bmp making sure that it is going to be saved in the same place ie c:\windows\system32
once done either edit the oemlogo.bmp file or create a new image file, making sure that your new image file is the same pixle size as the origional oemlogo.bmp file.

my current oemlogo.bmp file is quite small, but experement to see what is best.

I initially found out how to do this from the following link. not all systems have this oemlogo.bmp file but you should be able to create one and save it in the system32 folder without issue.
