I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

One thing you might try is:
1. Load the recovery console by inserting your Windows XP CD.
2. Run chkdsk /r on the drive.
3.From there rename the existing file:

ren c:\windows\system32\ntdll.dll ntdll.bad

4. Extract your new ntdll.dll from the XP CD or download from http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?ntdll
Give us more info if the above fails....
