I'm running Win XP and have had a persistent win32.dll error for awhile - the generic host service etcetera. Usually it just glitches my sound.
Tonight it stopped opening new programs. So, I reboot to fix it - like usual. Only now, I've managed to convince it somehow that It has to reboot. It loads through the bios and the boot sequence like normal, gets to my 'classic' style windows login pane - but instead of initialising the dialogue, the screen loses input and the PC reboots.
So far I have:
1) Swore at it
2) Tried a WinXP CD bootfix
3) Tried a WinXP CD repair installation
4) Sworn at it some more.
I'm now running linux off a disk in order to post this, but was wondering - am I doomed to a complete reinstall? I know it's likely the error is related to a persistent and underlying problem, but I wanted to spend my weekend enjoying myself, not reinstalling OS and drivers!
