STOP: c0000221 Unknown Hard Error



I just rebooted and I get a blue screen with the message:

STOP: c0000221 Unknown Hard Error

can I repair this or do I have to reformat or can I just install winxp over the existing one?


thanx a bunch.......

can I copy the ntdll.dll from another computer to a floppy disk and copy it into the windows/system32 on the not working computer.

if so how do I go about copying it from the floppy to the computer ?
I haven't been able to bring up the Microsoft article to read about your problem so I'm not sure what's going on (I think thier server is down at the moment). I take it that you're up and running ok on the machine that gave you the bsod? If so, open a command window and type in 'sfc /scannow.' This will scan for corrupted system files and replace any that are damaged.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
