  1. Hello I'm James,

    When I turned on my computer I remembered the Scandisk (or disk check?) was running when it was booting up. Usually I just skip it but this time I let it run and it was also running fine last night. After it finished the blue screen:
    poped up before the login window showed. I've tried to get in with safe mode and other selections from the f-8 menu but all lead to the blue screen. I've rebooted alot of times and found a similar solution Here with my other computer. But I can't get in to use command prompt so... right now I guess I can only use Windows XP Recovery Center to somehow solve it.

    Oh and my computer is a Compaq with Windows Xp Prof.. if you need anymore info ask.

    Thanks in advance

    Bluescreen with status c000021a and Status 0xc0000135

    I had the same problem as described above. For all German speaking people read:
    winfuture-forum.de/index.php?act=ST&f=1&t=81787

    For the rest of you I'll try to explain.

    I uninstalled the software FritzDSL from the computer. After the uninstallation Windows XP did not start anymore. I got a bluescreen with some text like status c000021a and 0xc0000135 etc.
    I just copied all missing DLL-files from the windows\system32 folder from a working computer to the windows\system23 folder on the damaged computer. I had to plug the one harddisk into an external case. For the identification of the missing files i used SyncToy. I did not overwrite any files - just copied 90 of 1300 .DLL files from one computer to the other.

    After that everything works fine again.
