c:\windows\system32\ntdll.dll is corrupt

Specs: Windows Vista, Intel Core 2 DUO E4500 w/viiv tech / 3072MB
I was recently given an HP Pavilion a6244n PC running Windows Vista. I was told there was a problem, and when I tried to start it, I got a short beep, then a long beep, indicating a memory issue. I removed one of the memory boards; no beeps. I then switched it with another, and still no beeps, and the PC started up. Everything looked OK for about 20-30 minutes (I was not connected, so I tried out Solitaire), then the CPU crashed (BSOD), and would not reboot. I tried the self-repair, and the last known working config, but no change. I ran some diagnostics, and the tests began OK, but stopped by itself. When looking at the log, it says that " c:\windows\system32\ntdll.dll is corrupt "

I did not receive any disks, and little documentation with the machine.

Well the error is saying that the file "ntdll.dll" is corrupt or missing and you need to copy the file over again. If there is a recovery partition on the drive, you can try to locate it by using the recovery console on an XP CD, then copy it over to the main hard drive.
