Are you able to boot normally? If so, Click start, run, sfc /scannow. It should popup a small window and the check will be going on. You may need to have Window XP Disc with you.

If you are not able to boot normally, then boot into Recovery Console and do sfc /scannow.

Most of these problems have to do with hardware issues or Service Pack 2 - have you recently made any changes to your system?

I can boot normally. I ran scannow in normal mode -- I got this message:

"Files that are required for Windows to run properly must be copied to the DLL cache."

Does this mean that some of my DLL's are missing or corrupt?

Then I got this message: "Insert your Windows XP Professional CD2 now."

I'm running Win MCE 2005. I got Toshiba System Restore discs with the computer, and there is a hidden partition that contains some kind of recovery files. I have the I386 cabs in the Windows directory. I looked and looked -- I cannot find the System Restore discs for the Toshiba. They have to be here somewhere; I found the restore discs for my other two computers. Arrrrrrrrgh.

I tried inserting those Windows XP discs, but of course they didn't work. With one, I got tis message: "insert WXPVOL_EN" So I guess that's the title of the disc I'm looking for.

I had to cancel out of scannow.

In the old days, it used to be possible to extract fresh copies of DLL's from the cabs. Can I do that instead?

Army John,

This Toshiba laptop came with SP2 already installed. That was a year ago. So I don't think SP2 is a problem.

Hardware changes -- yes, I have made some changes in the last two to three months. I cannot remember the last time I booted into Safe Mode -- every few weeks, probably.

I added an External HD, connected via USB.
I used Partition Magic to make three partitions on the laptop's internal Hard Disk, and two partitions on the external HD.
My mouse died and I plugged in another USB mouse.
I added a USB 7-port hub for the external HD, printer, and scanner.

Ah, here we go again. It's InCD that's doing it. You need to download the newest version. Assuming you actually have InCD (comes with Nero), you can download the update here. Just scroll down to Update Package 3.

I suppose I could be wrong, but it's a common problem, and that's often the cause.

Yes, I recently installed a newer version of Nero. (Nero 6). InCD is for REwriting data to discs, right? I do not want that, and I did not install it. Nero has been burning just fine. Are there any *.DLL's or other files that I should look for and delete? Any registry keys that I should change, so that Nero is happy without InCD?

I have the I386 cabs in the Windows directory.


Located I386 Directory instead of using Windows XP Disc.
