Why not try Windows Login Recovery to reset forgotten password in your PC? It can help to reset Windows lost password in five minutes even if you're a newbie. It won't cause any data loss.

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop. Windowsroot system32 ntoskrnl.exe appeared following a System Restore and I cannot use System Restore to try another date as I cannot get into Windows. How do I solve this?


You need the recovery disc to resolve this issue:

Boot from the recovery disc and select "R" to repair your Operating System.

If you're already in teh Recovery Console, select the Operating System you wish to fix and type the administrator password or just press enter.

Type expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32 (here I presume that the CD is in D: and XP is installed in C:\Windows)

If it already exists, you will then be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file. Type Y and press <Enter> to overwrite the file.

Type exit and press enter and reboot your computer.

System should boot to windows this time.

My 2 year old stepped on{or dropped } my Dell xps m140 and cracked the screen. I thought I would replace it myself..Before I do, I hooked up an external monitor to see if it still operates properly, well...


This error is also cause by the hard drive storage of your pc notebook, if you know how to locate the hard drive you just have to remove it for a while and then put it back, some loose connection of the hard drive cause the problem, if you find it still not working, you need to repair the system startup of Windown XP it is corrupted that's why it wont start.

Before attempting to check the physical parts of your notebook, try first to check and recover the Windows startup system.

In windows startup repair you can use the Windows Recovery Console.

Source: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058

Here's the step to start in Recovery Console:

  1. Insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive and restart your computer. If you are prompted, select any options required to start (boot) from the CD.
  2. When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts. Select the repair or recover option by pressing R.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiboot system, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password.
  5. At the command prompt, type Recovery Console commands, and then you can refer to the commands that are listed in the "Available commands within Windows Recovery Console" section.
  6. At any time, you can type Help for a list of available commands.
  7. At any time, you can type Help commandname for help on a specific command. For example, you can type help attrib to display the help on the attributes command.
  8. At any time, you can exit Windows Recovery Console by typing Exit at the command line.
After you start the Windows Recovery Console, you receive the following message:

Microsoft Windows(R) Recovery Console

The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality.

1: C:\WINDOWS

Which Windows Installation would you like to log on to ?

(To cancel, press ENTER)

Enter the number for the appropriate Windows installation. In this example, you would press 1. Then, Windows prompts you to enter the Administrator account password.

Note If you use an incorrect password three times, the Windows Recovery Console closes. Also, if the Security Accounts Manager (SAM) database is missing or damaged, you cannot use the Windows Recovery Console because you cannot be authenticated correctly. After you enter your password and the Windows Recovery Console starts, type Exit to restart the computer.

Use the fixboot command to repair the startup boot of your notebook.

Graphics driver problem


If you are running Win 2000, or XP, try booting up from a WinXP CD, and at first screen type 'r' to go into recovery console. Once in recovery mode follow prompts as to what windows installation you want to fix, typically 1. Type Admin password, if there is one, otherwise tap the 'Enter' key. At next prompt )C:\Windows ...) type 'chkdsk C: \r' then tap the Enter key.
This should correct the error. Note: this task or command could take up to an hour or more, so plan ahead. Good Luck!
