Download the file to a floppy or burn to a CD from another machine. Boot into safe mode if you have to, copy the file over that way. Else when the screen is blank, hit CTRL + ALT + DEL - which brings up the Task Manager. Under File - go to New Task (Run..) - type explorer.exe

That should launch explorer and let you view the GUI.

I tried rebooting in safe mode but still got the same error. the same message comes up " the application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\systems32\KBDUS.DLL is not a valid windows image. please check this against your installation diskette." i pressed enter twice and it disappears and all am left with is a blank screen. when i press CTRL + ALT + DEL nothing happens. basically i cant get pass that blank screen.

Hit F8 when the computer boots, choose that from the same menu you selected Safe Mode from before. It will say Safe Mode with Command Prompt as a menu option.

Running out of options pretty quickly - if you don't have an XP CD, not sure what else to tell you. Perhaps take the hard drive out, slave it to another machine and copy the file that way.

Create a BartPE CD then boot from that. Once booted into the Bart GUI you can use the file management utility to copy the file from floppy to wherever you need to copy it to.
