  I needed to reinstall XP Home on my Toshiba Satellite A100-225.  It was running slow.  Wiped the HD --put in the XP Home Install CD. followed everything incl. formatting.  Install first phase went smoothly,--the reboot produced a BSOD with following:


STOP: C0000221{Bad Image Checksum}

The Image CRYPTUI.dll is possibly corrupt.

The header Checksum does not match the computed Checksum.


 I re-installed again, thinking there was a glitch on the install, but it produced same BSOD/Message.

Thinking maybe the CD was damaged --I tried to install XP Pro --same BSOD:

Then decided to change Harddrive---No difference--both Home and Pro same BSOD.!

Looking on 'net for ideas, I saw an entry that maybe the CMOS was the fault--dead--the Notebook is pretty old and I got it second hand 4 yrs ago--been a good servant.   A local Service shop wouldn't touch it---CMOS is soldered direct onto mainboard.  However, I opened the Notebook following an online video,--desoldered the CMOS no problem, and ordered a replacement.  Checked the old one for voltage---2.9v for a 3v battery isn't bad, and it's a rechargeable battery! Would that cause the BSOD?

  The CD/DVD Drive has never given any problems.

If anyone can throw some light on this and where I go from here, I would be very grateful, because I just don't see why this should be happening---I've reinstalled using these 2 CDs a few times and never had anything like this happen before.  many thanks



I originally posted this in BSOD'S W10 forum--sorry.




    I did remove the CMOS Battery, and have soldered the replacement onto the mainboard.

Reassembled the Notebook, did a fresh install.  This was successful.  Flashed the BIOS to the latest version.  Successfully.  Apart from a problem finding 2 drivers, the Notebook is up and running. 

I am NOT sure that the CMOS was the problem though. I checked everything over before the latest reinstall, CD Drive, Install CD cleaned.
