Hello,

I've been trying for days to get into my laptop and for some reason I can't and I'm going crazy.

To explain, I use Windows XP with SP2 installed and when I turn on my laptop and it gets to the log in screen it doesn't show the regular long in for XP but the clasic one. Also when I get into my profile (or anyone else for that matter) it says the following

"Explorer.EXE - Application error. The Application failed to initialize properly (0xc000001d)." All the other sites I went to say to open up the task manenger but when I go to do that it says

"Taskmgr.exe - Application Error"


EDIT!

I have tried system Restore and that did nothing at all.

Along with the same thing it says for the Explorer error. I can't even open task manenger with the Command Promt when I go into safety mode. none of my icons or the start menu shows up, just my wall paper. I need help please!

:heink:  i seem to be having this exact same issue... opening up a command prompt window and type "sfc /scannow" system said windows file protection could not initate a scan of protected system files. The specific error code is 0x000006ba. (The RPC server is unavailable). Now one of the first things i did was unplug the internet. remote procedure anything is cause for concern, i will be back to update whats gonna work for this so far unknown issue.

Try to access safe mode. Does that work any better?

When you start up, repeatedly tap F11, and see if you get into a recovery partition. If that doesn't work, restart and try F2.

Then you may not have a recovery partition. You may need to contact Dell, and get the recovery discs, or get a copy of windows.
