services.exe - bad image, even in safe mode, locked up
Posted on 2009-07-03
Dell Vostro 200, Windows XP Pro. When booting up would get multiple "bad image" errors with various files. Could log in, but within a few minutes it would reboot. Tried loading a previous restore point. That didn't work. Looked for solutions, did a repair from the original CD, now it locks up at the first error message. No mouse or keyboard.
Put in a new hard drive. When installing it gets to about 57% then reboots and gives an error "irq_not_less_or_equal_to" and refers to ntfs.sys.
Let me know what other information you need to help.
