system32\ntoskrl.exe error msg appearing even after successful expand

By srikanth16 ·
I have a Dell latitude D520, running on win xp sp2. I don't have a problem with my lap until windowsroot\system32\ntoskrnl.exe error shown up last week.
Gone through many forums and threads which suggested to copy the file again from xp cd using recovery console.

Did the same exactly as suggested. copied the file and received a message "1 file successfully expanded". Now I have rebooted system and to my surprise the error message still popping up.

What should i do? some one please help me to get back as lot of important files are lied in C C partition, reason why i can not afford a format right now.

And to my additional headache, I have fallowed some advice to "delete and re-install the boot.ini file as in some cases boot.ini file missing or corruption will also lead to ntoskrnl.exe error" according to article which I have read.

Now, boot.ini error is also popping up.

kindly help me to solve the problems.

It sounds to me as though your hard drive is dying.

Losing the boot record and system files due to hard drive failures can be frustrating. Best advice, if you haven't already, try backing up any important data, maybe find an external USB hard drive, boot from your emergency repair disk and backup your files. Then find the make/model of your failing hard drive and go to the manufacturer's website to see if they have some sort of diagnostic utility you can download and run on it. It could be time to look for either a replacement hard drive or alternate boot methods.

For anyone who read it...

I think this is an emergency case! I lost 2 office machines under these symptoms, one of it containing our project website!

Personally I have backing up my data with the remote (network) edition of Handy Backup utility to Dropbox using WebDAV protocol at first signs of emergency ( Then I replace (not just repair!) the HDD with a spare and try to run the system again. If these situation occurs again, the machine goes to its personal funeral ceremony...
