Ran into issue with HP laptop running XP, continuous boot and reboot. Went through chkdsk /r and got into XP. But, no access to internet at all. In series of frustrating events, I can monitor BC on work computer but can't download any fixes. Went to attic and got old tower, exact same XP boot issue (??). Never seen this issue before and now have it 2x in 2 days, once on machine that hasn't been used in 3 months+.

running chkdsk /r on tower.

to summarize, no internet access on original laptop so can't download any fixes

trying to get tower to work (was able to start in safe mode but then had no IE access) so I can download to zip drive and portage over to ailing laptop.

Any advice for what else to check on laptop while waiting to see if tower is usable?

edit: running application and driver recovery disk on laptop will see what that provides

edit 2: can't get app and driver disk to run, install shield runs and then get error (-5009 : 0x800706ba)

error details: >Ctor\objectwrapper.cpp (389)
> Kernel\component.cpp(875)
> Kernal\CABfile.cpp (263)
> SetupDLL\SetupDLL.cpp (1611)

Hi

Don't know about the reboot issue but is your modem or router okay?

Have you tried connecting the laptop on another network like at a friend or family member's house?

work laptop connected fine, don't have any wireless capability working on troupble laptop, tried direct connect with ethernet, didn't work either...although, the tower is now directly connected to the modem and I'm getting the same issue.

Had malwarebyted downloaded already on laptop, when try to run it get run time error '453':
Can't find DLL entry point LanguageSetPath in mbam

as it is likely obvious, I'm not very good with this stuff but I do see reference to DLL issues on many of the apps I try to run since this problem occured

chkdsk /r found 1 issue on tower but that machine is still stuck in boot loop, I can get in via safe mode but don't know what to do once I get there to fix the issue

I've made something worse, now pretty much everything I hit says This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. That last one is in this window c:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe

What did you do to cause the rundll error to occur?
In the beginning there was the command line.

not sure, was going through icons looking for ones that worked and probably hit an old icon for rkill or gmer or something else...when mbam didn't work I may have gotten to cavalier about what I was hitting

but, the dll issue predates that latest issue I believe

so, got even older tower from attic, not used in a year or two, same exact problem with XP booting, it just keeps looping from black XP page back to Start Windows page...that is 3 computers in 2 days, the last one not hooked to modem at all, with the same issue...I'm stuck until one of the mac books gets home from school. I should be able to download onto a zip drive then.
