My Dell 4700 running WindowsXPpro is hanging up on booting. If I try to go to Setup of Boot Menu, It shows 'Keyboard Failure'. The screen remains black with only a flashing cursor for about 5 minutes. The machine then automatically reboots and the same screen shows up. Then after another 5 minutes the machine boots properly. I looked into the error log and found this:
Source-Side by Side- Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.MFCLOC could not be found and Last Error was The referenced assembly is not installed on your system.
And this message as well:
Generate Activation Context failed for C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_Microsof t.VC80.MFC_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8. 0.50727.42_x-ww_dec6ddd2\MFC80 .DLL. Reference error message: The operation completed successfully. .
I hope this makes sense to you guys. Sorry, but I am not the most computer literalte person...
