During boot up, i get the following message;

STOP: c0000135 {Unable To Locate Component}
This application has failed to start because winsrv was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.


I am running XP pro build 2600, service pack 3, on a Toshiba Portege M100.

Worked fine one day, not the next!

Was directed here via microsoft forum - I'm sure this can't be the first occurrence of this boot up problem - any advice, good people.....I dont have a CD with recovery or anything like that for this laptop.

Thanks in anticipation,

Ian (VFRboy)

Microsoft Says...

I suggest contacting the manufacturer...and obtaining recovery CDs for that system.

If it were me...I'd download the SP3 package and pur it on a bootable CD...then run that.

Hi Louis,

I've downloaded SP3 onto a CD via the microsoft website using a different PC. How do I now go about getting the unwell PC to read from that CD for booting up?

Thanks

Ian

If you are going to boot from the CD you will need to make your optical drive the first device in the boot order. Insert the CD in to the drive and restart the computer.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Use any program...that allows the creation of bootable CDs.
