Hello,
Here's my problem.I just received a free computer from work which they discarded.It has Windows NT installed as OS.When I start the computer it goes thru initial startup and then the screen goes BLUE and the following message comes up:

STOP: c0000135,Unable to locate DLL,DLL winsrv could not be found.
Beginning physical memory dump,physical memory dump complete.
contact system admin


I'm planning on using this computer as a home system now and wonder can I just reinstall a different OS(Windows 98 or XP) or must the above problem be fixed somehow first and if so,how?

Thanks!

You don't need to fix the old OS unless there are some settings you need. If there is data to save, don't reformat, just install the new OS in a different folder (Windows instead of winnt). If you don't need any data, I would delete all the partitions and recreate partitions in a size tht makes sense for you. You can delete and create partitions during the setup of W2k, NT, or XP.

Good luck!

If you decide to go the way of 98 then download a bootdisk (98SE) and reboot the machine with it. The type fdisk and delete all partitions and wnen complete make a new partition using large disk suport. Then reboot the system agiin with hte 98 cdron in as well as the bootdisk and this time type format c: and click enter . when complete type setup and let windows install.
