i have had my pc for four years now and untill a few months ago it was running fine. Things were not running propally so i decided i would reinstall xp. I did not recive an xp disc when i bought the computer brand new. This was a hp computer and they used hp recovery instead. So i ran this recovery and ran a full recovery (wipes hard drive completly and reinstalls xp). I got to about 80% complete and it started poping up saying that so and so file could not be recovered. About 100 diffrent files could not be recovered and i noticed most of them were system 32 files. I know that system 32 is the vital part of windows so i knew somthing was going wrong. The recovery finished and restarted the pc, but i got this error message "windows could not be started because load file needed DLLS for kernal" What do i do?

By the way this is a hp pavilon computer with windows xp home edition installed (well used to be installed anyway ;D)

i did the recovery from recovery cd's which the computer told me to make when i first got the computer

hope you can help, thanks guys

I would bet the hard drive is toast and that is the issue. You thought it finished and it really didn't and I have been here before with HP pc's.
