A pc I have in my possession won't complete booting up, it starts, then gives the options such as last good config, safe mode etc etc..but which ever choice you make it wont finish booting! goes past xp screen then this..

It comes up with the following messages..

The application or dll C:\windows\system32\obdcint.dll is not a valid windows image, please check this against your installation diskette

Then...ODBC Driver manager..Failed to load resource dll odbcint.dll

Then..Services.exe..same as winlogon message but with C:\windows\system32\scesrv.dll

then pops up.. Lsass.exe..same as winlogon message but with C:\windows\system32\samlib.dll

After this the screen comes up with the pointer but it goes no further...all modes are the same (even safe mode won't work).

She said she tried to up date some kodak software and that when the probs started..

Please help....Thanks.

Repair XP by install over the top of existing systm

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.

2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.

To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER.

DO NOT choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console).

4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.

5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair.

6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.

Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears.

Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
