Start + Search + Pictures, Music or Videos + then put *.mp3 into the search box and go. This will list every mp3 on your drive at which point you can select all files listed and cut (ctrl+x) and paste them (ctrl+v) into a new folder on your desktop or wherever you choose to put them.

Solution
I recognize the importance of resolving this issue and I look forward in providing you with the necessary assistance you need.

The above error comes if the boot volume is corrupted and cannot be initiated by Windows XP. or You are installing Windows XP on a mirrored boot partition that was created by Microsoft Windows NT 4.0.

To completely resolve your issue i think you have to reinstall the OS.
Have to format the Hard drive

requirement
the OS - XP Home / Premium Installation CD





Disk formatting is the initial part of the process for preparing a hard disk or other storage medium for its first use. The disk formatting includes setting up an empty file system. A disk formatting may setup multiple file systems by formatting partitions for each file system.

When I start up Windows XP I get three error boxes each of them say: Rundll Error Loading C:windowssystem3whnoherd.dll Rundll Error Loading C:windowssystem32cryakfuvzxugjh.dll Rundll Error Loading...


Hi,

Rundll.exe files are systems process directly related to your computer's Windows Registry All Dll files are a part of vast library that contains code and data that is shared by many programs. This helps to produce speed and memory efficiency in your operating system by reusing the same code or file to run many functions by various programs. An error occurs when program aren't allowed to access this code.

Now, if you able to access the XP in safe mode, You could go to :-

Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Restore.

Select a restore point and it's all done.

Unless, the only User Fixable option is to Repair the Windows. Put the XP disk in tray and run Repair. Once repaired, it would fix the problem.

Let me know, if needed assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

When you format something you WILL lose all of the data that was there. I would also recomend upgradeing to XP, 2000, or NT. You may need to reinstall the OS. If you need instructions ask me and I can help.
