XP home SP2

Can some one please tell me why I keep getting these at every boot.

I cant actually see what the dll is in the error as the mouse pointer is in the way and its before windows loads so I cant move the mouse.
However if it press enter windows loads ok.

Well...I would say that your hard drive is in not-so-good shape if chkdsk starts to run at boot.

What you need to do is boot...go to My Computer...and run chkdsk, checking the boxes for auto fix and attempting recovery of bad sectors. This may take some time, depending on the condition of the drive/file system and the size of the partition. No matter how long it takes, let it run to completion.

How To Run CHKDSK In XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;en-us;Q315265

You should not see that screen on subsequent boots.

This kbdus.dll...maybe that will correct after running chkdsk.

ok I tried it through windows and it said it couldnt because the volume was in use.
So I opted to run it on the next boot, which it did.
It took 20 mins. on my poor old 20gig five year old HDD. (5 steps in check disk)
It didnt say it found or fixed any errors.

DLL error not fixed so will have a look at your google link for a fix.

Thanks for your time and help.

The google link seems to be talking about a US keyboard error, I'm n Australia.
I can see the file in System32.

Should I just delete it ??

US keyboard is describing the position and type of keys. Special languages have special keys. I would image you have a standard Qwerty US keyboard

Hi, Thanks for the replies.
I have a MS QWERTY keyboard, my regional settings are OK.
I'm still getting the KBDUS.dll error before windows loads.

Any ideas ?

BTW, my PC didn't do a chkdsk this morning :thumbsup:

Thanks

Perhaps you need to replace the DLL in question. Below is a link to download it from. However, I do not know that site or how safe it is.

ok stressing now.

Work this one out, Ive never seen anything like it.
I downloaded the file and save it to my desk top (no problems)

I went in to delete and replace the dll file.....
Right click delete the file was deleted and appeared in the recycle bin, 3 seconds later it re appeared in system 32
I did this 5 times and it just kept recreating its self without any input from me.
I now have 5 instances of kbdus.dll in the recycle bin and one still in system32.

Have you ever heard of anything like this before ? I.m not even getting the chance to replace it.

It's probably a protected system file, self-regenerating (similar to My Docs and others).

The only thing I can think of is to run sfc /scannow and allow it to check for corrupt files. If it is corrupt, it will be replaced.

LEARN how to use SFC.EXE (system file checker) in this article! - http://www.updatexp.com/scannow-sfc.html

I never claim to know the best option :thumbsup:, but...since you seem intent on playing with that one file, I suspect that sfc /scannow will be the only means of removing it, short of a repair install of XP.

But, I can be wrong...
