My husband and I recently dug his computer out of the box and hooked it up to recover some pics before we sell it. I was in the middle of removing some games, cookies, and files when my daughter came in and pulled the plug. Now windows won't load. I did a system recovery and that didn't work, windows recovery didn't work either.

It says that cryptdll.dll cannot be found and installing it would probably solve the problem but I can't figure out how to do that without windows!!!!!! Help please!

Do you have a copy of the Windows XP CD? If so put it into the CD-ROM drive, make sure that in the system BIOS your computer is set to boot from the CD-ROM Drive before Hard Drive C. You will get a screen saying something similar to: Press any key to boot from CD...

Press any key, and it will take a few minutes to load all of the files. It will then ask you to select repair by pressing R, press R. Have it restore all of the files, then re-boot after the repair, this should fix the problem.

If you don't have the CD, download the file, and copy it to a floppy disk, along with a copy of a Windows XP boot disk, then copy the file to the correct destination and try again.


P.S. I hope this helps :thumbsup:
