hi, i installed a win xp boot screen, and after about 3 weeks it stopped working (didnt replace noraml boot screen) so i reinstalled it but it seems to have 'killed' my computer as the boot screen will not appear and i cant access my computer. Is there anything i can do except for reinstall windows??? :blink:

There is no need for reinstalling the windows.
Boot with DOS mode and delete the ntoskrnl.exe file.
When you will restart your PC, windows will make a new ntoskrnl.exe

In DOS mode type:

cd c:\windows\system32\
del ntoskrnl.exe

to boot in DOS mode with xp, wait until your computer shows the list of pci devices in a box. press f8, then f8 again. choose it from the list that appears, then press enter twice.

Ummmm, ok i installed logon screen, doesn't work, the usual. but my xp won't start up at all now. i try to run in safe mode and it does the windows boot-up but instead of going to what would next be the logon screen, the computer restarts automatically <_< ... there is no DOS boot on XP from what i gather ;) and i don't have the CD to fix problems with... sooo, ummmm any ideas? would be most greatful to avoid formating. :cry:
