  1. Hi,

    My PC has been freezing several times a week and today it failed to start during booting up.

    Machine started and I then saw a pixilated screen (could just make out the blue start up logo from XP in the back ground.

    Then received a blue screen with the following message:

    STOP: C00000139 {ENTRY POINT NOT FOUND} the procedure entry point createsolidbrush could not be located in the dynamic 1 link library GDI32.dll

    I am running on the following:

    Windows XP SP2 Home Edition
    Version 2002
    AMD Athlon CP 2600+
    1.91 GHz, 704 MB of RAM

    Can anyone suggestion anything?
