Samsrv.dll and ncobjapi.dll Missing

I recently ran a chkdsk on my dell laptop once it was done I restarted the computer. When windows was just about to go into the login screen two error messages popped up saying ncobjapi.dll was missing and samsrv.dll was missing. How do I load these files back onto windows since I cant get into windows?

hi gambitt

can you get into safe mode?? If yes try this before attempting a repair of the dll files

start - run
sfc /scannnow

you will need to have your WinXP CD installed for access to these files

Lets knoow how this goes ok

If you cannot get into Safe mode, then you will need to use the Recovery Console, which is described in this MSKB article:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314058
Description of the Windows XP Recovery Console

(You need to make sure your primary boot device is the CD-ROM drive -- go into the BIOS to ensure this, if necessary), boot from the Windows XP installation CD-ROM, then use the EXPAND command, like this:

expand d:\i386\samsrv.dl_ c:\windows\system32\samsrv.dll

expand d:\i386\ncobjapi.dl_ c:\windows\system32\ncobjapi.dll

(where d: is the drive of your CD-ROM)

Then type EXIT and when the pc reboots, you should be able to boot into XP.
