Hi fatsabino

Yes you can reinstall your computer with xp, should bee no problem if it is not your harddware it is wrong with as ex. your hard disc is broke. Let mee say in another way, if it is only a problem that is missing some DLL´s, then it should bee no problem, just reinstall.

If it is your hard drive (hard disc), then the easyest is to by a new one and then replace the hard disc´s in the computer and then install Xp.

You can find a manual here on how to install Windows Xp :
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316941

If it is something else of your computer(also if it is your hard drive and dont know how to replace it), then it depends if you have a computer insurance or the factory warranty (if it is a new computer) still is valid.
If you have the insurance or the warranty still works then simply contact the insurance or the place where you bought it.
If you do not have some of the 2 things, then you need to pay for a repair, unless you know someone who can do it for you.

It is sound like you just can reinstall and then the computer is working.
REMEMBER TO HAVE YOUR DRIVERS(IF YOU USE EXTRA HARDWARE) READY AND YOUR WINDOWS XP PRODUCT KEY.

Hope that helps

You should be able to use the windows disc to repair the installation. If you have the disc in the cd rom drive and re-boot the computer you should get a "boot from cd press any key" that will only appear for a few seconds. If you do not press any key than you will get the error again. If it is not asking you to boot from the cd than you may have to go into the computer BIOS and change the boot sequence settings so the cd-rom drive is the first bootable device. When you press any key on re-boot the windows selection screen should come up and you will be able to select to repair installation. Just be aware if this error was caused by a virus it may not repair properly or happen again.

Fix kernel dell xp


There are several different ways that kernel.dll errors can show up on your computer. Here are some of the more common ways that you might see kernel.dll errors:
  • "Kernel.dll Not Found"
  • "This application failed to start because kernel.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
  • "Cannot find [PATH]\kernel.dll"
  • "The file kernel.dll is missing."
  • "Cannot start [APPLICATION]. A required component is missing: kernel.dll. Please install [APPLICATION] again."
Kernel.dll error messages might appear while using or installing certain programs, when Windows starts or shuts down, or maybe even during a Windows installation.
The context of the kernel.dll error is an important piece of information that will be helpful while solving the problem.

Cause of Kernell.dll Errors
Kernel.dll errors are caused by situations that lead to the removal or corruption of the kernel DLL file.
In some cases, kernel.dll errors could indicate a registry problem, a virus or malware issue or even a hardware failure.

How to Fix Kernel.dll Errors
Important: Do not download kernel.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of kernel.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source.
Note: Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the kernel.dll error.
  1. Restore kernel.dll from the Recycle Bin. The easiest possible cause of a "missing" kernel.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it.
    If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted kernel.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover kernel.dll with a free file recovery program.
    Important: Recovering a deleted copy of kernel.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you're confident you've deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.
  2. Run a virus/malware scan of your entire system. Some kernel.dll errors could be related to a virus or other malware infection on your computer that has damaged the DLL file. It's even possible that the kernel.dll error you're seeing is related to a hostile program that's masquerading as the file.
  3. Use System Restore to undo recent system changes. If you suspect that the kernel.dll error was caused by a change made to an important file or configuration, a System Restore could solve the problem.
  4. Reinstall the program that uses the kernel.dll file. If the kernel.dll DLL error occurs when you use a particular program, reinstalling the program should replace the file.
    Important: Try your best to complete this step. Reinstalling the program that provides the kernel.dll file, if possible, is a likely solution to this DLL error.
  5. Update the drivers for hardware devices that might be related to kernel.dll. If, for example, you're receiving a "The file kernel.dll is missing" error when you play a 3D video game, try updating the drivers for your video card.
    Note: The kernel.dll file may or may not be related to video cards - this was just an example. The key here is to pay very close attention to the context of the error and troubleshoot accordingly.
  6. Roll back a driver to a previously installed version if kernel.dll errors began after updating a particular hardware device's driver.
  7. Run the sfc /scannow System File Checker command to replace a missing or corrupt copy of the kernel.dll file. If this DLL file is provided my Microsoft, the System File Checker tool should restore it.
  8. Install any available Windows updates. Many service packs and other patches replace or update some of the hundreds of Microsoft distributed DLL files on your computer. The kernel.dll file could be included in one of those updates.
  9. Test your memory and then test your hard drive. I've left the majority of hardware troubleshooting to the last step, but your computer's memory and hard drive are easy to test and are the most likely components that might cause kernel.dll errors as they fail.
    If the hardware fails any of your tests, replace the memory or replace the hard drive as soon as possible.
  10. Repair your installation of Windows. If the individual kernel.dll file troubleshooting advice above is unsuccessful, performing a startup repair or repair installation should restore all Windows DLL files to their working versions.
  11. Use a free registry cleaner to repair kernel.dll related issues in the registry. A free registry cleaner program may be able to help by removing invalid kernel.dll registry entries that might be causing the DLL error.
    Important: I rarely recommend the use of registry cleaners. I've included the option here as a "last resort" attempt before the destructive step coming up next.
  12. Perform a clean installation of Windows. A clean install of Windows will erase everything from the hard drive and install a fresh copy of Windows. If none of the steps above correct the kernel.dll error, this should be your next course of action.
    Important: All the information on your hard drive will be erased during a clean install. Make sure you've made the best attempt possible to fix the kernel.dll error using a troubleshooting step prior to this one.
  13. Troubleshoot for a hardware problem if any kernel.dll errors persist. After a clean install of Windows, your DLL problem can only be hardware related.
Applies To
The kernel.dll error message could apply to any program or system that might utilize the file on any of Microsoft's operating systems including Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.

The computer is down and when it comes up it says Load needed DLLS for kernel


Windows is severely corrupted : the kernel dll - the core file, on which all the other build upon - is missing. There is only one thing left to do - perform a full Windows reinstall.

Hi, you can try rolling back your operating system to a time before the problem started, by starting in safe mode. To do this press the ESC button during bootup and select start in safe mode, once there you can select this option.
If this dos'nt work you will need to reinstall the operating system, unfortunately you will need an operating CD for this.

Can't run software on dell computer


This sounds like an issue with your desktop. Something has got corrupted maybe. Try going to the cd driectly to install a program. It only needs internet explorer when it runs the menu for the cd. It can all be installed by finding the setup for the particualr program your installing. Might need to reinstall internet explorer on your desktop and if that doesn't help, I hate to say it but might need to reinstall windows on it. Are you using ME or XP? I had many problems with kernel32.dll errors with ME but have not had any problems at all with XP. Only way I ever fixed those errors with ME was to reinstall. ME was the least stable version of windows.
