    Default XP-Bluescreen halt: Winsrv not found, stop:c0000135 - MS help not working?

    Hello,
    the computer of my dad-in-law(-to-be) is not working anymore.
    When booting it halts with a beatifull blue screen stating winsrv not found , stop: c0000135.

    Well, I thought "Oh, another bluescreen of death. No big deal, that's something I have seen before", and did a little search. Almost all instructions/forum topics redirect to the microsoft help pages adressing the issues.
    "Boot with the XP CD, R/Console, ..."
    Unfortunaly it only works up to step 5: "type cd $ntservicepackuninstall$\spuninst" because the directory is not found.

    I then followed a different solution posted in some forum, where its simply solved via
    "expand d:\i386\winsrv.dl_ c:\windows\system32\winsrv.dll"

    Unfortunaly it states "unable to expand" even though the files exists and I renamed winsrv.dll to winsrv.old. I also tried copying the winsrv.dl_ to c: first but it did not make any difference.

    Is there any way I can avoid re-installing XP?
    I also tried the usual (safe mode, use last known working version, yadayada...)

    Thanks in advance for any help & thoughts on how to get this machine running again :-)

    /EDIT
    I managed to use another XP CD and expanding the winsrv.dl_ worked, but it did not solve to problem?

    sounds like you would have to do a windows repair (its alot like installing windows) to fix that
    i get problems like these alot, repairs will keep your settings/files if done right

    You appear to have a corrupt Windows CD. If the system was installed using that, there's no telling what may have broken.

    I'm not nearly as savvy as schorhr, but I did find the microsoft help pages and then finally figured out how to get the recovery console running from the "reinstallation cd" I found in a shoebox in my daughter's desk.

    But I ran into the same thing at Step 5: "Directory not found."

    This was disheartening but not particularly surprising since I never heard of Service Pack 2 and was not trying to load it, as the microsolf help article assumes. Maybe it was "updated" automatically, I don't know. Never heard of TVMedia, either.

    Here is the full blue screen error message:

    Stop: c000135 (unable to locate component).
    This application failed to start because winsrv was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

    So, anybody know of a fix or what are my options? I've got a number of files on the internal drive that I'd rather not lose....

    I am having the exact same issue, has anyone found a solution yet? It would be much appreciated! At this point I'm not even sure a fresh install is going to work.

    hi,

    Seems this error may be caused by the incompatibilities between the windowsXp SP2 and the Total Velocity Corporation T.V Media appliation.

    try visit the following link for the method of correction:
