My laptop had encountered a problem where it continuously restarted over and over. The techie at HP walked me through a whole system reinstall for WinXP. The laptop no longer continuously restarts, however, Windows won't load and this error message appears on a blue screen:

STOP: c0000269 {Illegal System DLL Relocation}
The System DLL kernel32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly.
The relocation occurred because the DLL X:\minint\system32\ntdll.dll occupied an address range reserved for windows system DLLs. The vendor supplying the DLL shoul %s %s

I have no idea what this means, what to do, and frankly, I don't think the techie at HP (in Mexico, BTW) does either. Also, nothing happens at startup when pressing F8, so I can't get into safe mode. Thank you in advance for any suggestions!
Again.... THANK YOU!

:twisted: <== I like this devil...:eek:<== and this guy

if the system is clean, try to reinstall again. and use the C: drive, not X:
maybe an installation from another XP cd will be the solution
