windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am getting an error message of

    <windows>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

     

    Last month my laptop crashed, had to do a destructive restore and was back up and running!  A few days ago it started acting up and tried to do a destructive restore again because nothing else was working and now I am getting this message. 

    My computer did not come with an XP disk but I do have it on my external HDD.  Can I restore or install from it?

    Please help, ASAP!!!

    Thanks

  • The best place to ask a quesiton about Windows XP is undoubtedly the Microsoft Windows XP newsgroups. However, the description of your problem makes me suspect a hardware issue, possbily a failing hard drive.

  • If your laptop is running XP and the XP install is on a bootable disk/drive that the laptop will use, yes. You should be able to do a startup repair or a repair install.

    I thought he was trying to recover from a WHS restore. Perhaps not... ;)

  • What is WHS?  I am trying to fix the windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe error message saying it needs to be re-installed.  I read somewhere that a way to fix it is to put it the XP disk and re-install but I don't have a disk.  I have a copy of the disk on my external HDD with codes!

    Is it possible to do this way?

  • WHS is Windows Home Server and this forum is for WHS. ;)

     

    If you need help for XP, this is the wrong place, although my first reply might still help you. Other than that, try the newsgroups that Ken suggested.

     

    Good luck...
