  1. It sounds like your Windows installation got corrupted. Ntoskrnl.exe is one of the main files Windows needs to run. If you can back up any of your important files, I'd recommend reinstalling Windows, instead of just trying to fix it.

  2. iv tryed, when i reinstall it, it gose back to windows xp SP1, when i upgrade to SP2 the same thing happens again,

    windows xp was pre installed on my laptop so i dont have the CD ? help
