Hi guys!!!!
I have a Dell Vostro 1510 laptop & when it boots up it goes to the windows screen with the bar going from left to right, then it comes up with the blue screen saying" The image kernel32.dll is possibly corrupt. The header checksum does not match the computed checksum".
Then that's it, i turn it off & all happens again.
I've tried to change the boot to CDrom to re-install windows but keeps coming up with this!
Any ideas please.... thanks in advance.

You can try to copy kernel32.dll from the ...\system32\dllcache directory to ...\system32 from the Recovery Console.

If this does not help try to copy kernel32.dll from e.g. a Service Pack CD or something to the ...\system32 directory.

Can you boot into safe mode?

You either changed the boot options in the BIOS...or you didn't...if you changed them and could not boot from the optical drive...let us know. There is no reason for that error message to show when booting from an optical drive.

I've tried to boot from the cd/dvd rom but still comes up with this.
The installation disc that came with this laptop is a re-installation, been told may need to reformat but cannot access anything & keeps displaying this screen.
Will i need to reformat & re-install a new copy of windows?

I can't see your disk, cannot try it on my systems...cannot see the files on it.

Perhaps you need to read your Dell documentation on what that disk can be used for and what it cannot be used for...and how such is to be done.
