The computer was having problems and preformed sfc /scannow.  The scan complete and stated that thier were to many files to fix and need to reboot and run sfc again.  On reboot received the "stop c0000139 entry point not found" error.  ran chkdsk and no problems, with dvd.  Windows Repair did not work, can't start in any avanced mode, safe mode, command prompt, safe mode with newtorking, last know working configuration, etc. The computer does not have a restore point. Any ideas beside reformat?

1.    Boot your machine from a Windows 7 CD.

2.    Press Shift+F10 , and get to the dos prompt (black screen with white letters).

3.   At the prompt, type copy  ‘d:\gdi32.dll file c:\windows\system32 ‘ without the quotes.

4.    At the prompt, type copy ‘d:\gdi32.dll file c:\windows\servicepackfiles\i386’  without the quotes.  

5.    Try to boot normally.

If you created a repair desk try to use the disk to repair the corrupted files.

Also try

To see if you can do a system restore and revert back to pass configuration

Normally can't do a system restore if you cant boot to safemode, or cant even boot to safe mode with command prompt. If you have a windows disc you can try to do system restore by booting from the windows disc. and press shift +F10.  Once at the dos prompt follow the followning article, start with step #3.
