  1. Hi, My old notebook running XP Pro will not boot. During windows shutdown I received the new windows updates to download.....when the computer shut down I could not restart again. It goes into the normal windows startup screen then seems to shut down showing this message at the top on a blue screen - STOP: C00000139 (Entry Point Not Found)
    The procedure entry point FlSSEtvalue could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll.
    - I tried booting with the Windows insallation disk with no success, ive tried 'safe mode' again without success....i am at a loss what to do.....i need HELP!!

    If your sure you can`t get into the Recovery Console,

    I`d say either -

    - remove the hard drive,then attach to another computer,

    either on USB or as a slave internally,then copy your personal data off,

    then reformat.


    - try the Ultimate Boot CD to copy data straight to your DVD/CD,

    using one it`s many utilities.

    You may even find a tool on there,that will allow you to fix something,

    or maybe not.: (
