WUPS.DLL issue after fdisk and reloading XP Home

I insterted my XP Home CD and rebooted my computer and it triggered the reload of the OS. I chose to fdisk the main partition first and then it loaded/copied everying to install windows xp home. I answered the questions and when it went to restart it hung. I waited about 5 minutes and did not hear the hard drive so I powered my Desktop down and when I powered it back up it still hund. The second time I powered up itnd I took it into safe mode I saw that it always hung on wups.dll. Any suggestions?

When you finished the installation you must of ticked the part where it says 'do you want windows to check for updates now', as the wups.dll is the file that checks the internet for windows updates. If you cannot get windows to startup correctly, then i would start your system up again with the disc in and either choose repair or reinstall and dont let it check for updates this time as you won't be connected to the net.

the OS is corrupted, a fact ! deal with that first. reload it yet?

the word laptop or desktop not stated, wow.
Optical drives dead. (super common)
get rid of XP?
stop using it. now.
what is Ji,? (Spanish for laugh, mixed with English case)
what is CASE? (or the computer case is bent)?
use full PC names only. and full model number for help.

XP is a dead OS and virus magnet,
old DVD drives fail.
the drivers in your PC are corrupted, if XP its like normal
why not reload the OS, for the disks Dell gave you.

is this an OLD M440 Dell Precision laptop? my wild wild guess....
or M4400 , SC440, or
the M440 (M means mobile at dell. lap/notebooks, are)
Dell has zero support on M440 and precision.

time to buy PC 2010 or newer, would be 10x more reliable and happy users. do not run XP ever. again.

The procedure entry point bink set mix bin volumes@20 could not be located in the dynamic link library binkw32.dll

The easiest way to fix this is to reload your operating system. Hopefully you have backed up your files recently.

When you are ready to reload the system FDISK the HDD, then boot to the OS CD or DVD ROM and follow the prompts to the end of the reload. Reboot and it should be good to go.

Entry point apsCreate MIB could not be located in the dynamic link wlanapi.dll

I don't see a question but I assume you are getting this message from your OS when you boot the computer. Uninstall the device shut down the computer and reboot then reinstall the device. This should reload the .dll file that is causing you problems.
