Error GDI32.DLL

Was removing programs from my computer to make more room and I think I deleted something I shouldn't have.
When my computer boots up an error message comes up stating: STOP: c0000135 (unable to LOCATE COMPONENT)
This application has failed to start because GDI32.DLL was not found.  Re-installing the application may fix this problem.
I tried to run the recovery console from the CD but it does not boot up (I made sure my primary boot device was the CD rom).  Any suggestions?

it seems like you have uninstalled directx system components

Also you say the cd doesnt boot are you sure its windows xp bootable cd

If its not bootable you can create on your own link the link below

What i meant by secondary is  second boot priority.  Confirm boot priority in bios first as cd and second as hdd

I inserted the reinstallation CD for Microsoft Windows XP and it does nothing.  Primary is CD rom.  I don't know what you mean by secondary hard disk.  I also tried starting in the Safe Mode and the error message still pops up.

Any other suggestions?
