c0000135 CSRSRV.dll blue screen

    When I turned my computer on a blue screen came up that reads
    Stop: c0000135 (unable to locate component)
    This application has failed to start because CSRSRV.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix tis problem.
    I haven't installed anything new or downloaded anything. I shut down when I left for the weekend and when I turned it back on the blue screen just came up.
    It won't start in safe mode or my last known good configurations.
    I am a college student and I have absolutely  no idea what to do.
    Please Help!
  • Try just installing the dll file.  Download it HERE
  • i can't get to a screen to download anything!!!  All i get is a blue screen! I won't run a CD or anything. I can't start from safe mode or my last known good configuration.  I am using my roomates computer right to post on the forum
  • Problem could be because you are missing the update 885523 HERE
    Get to the Recovery Console:
    When the computer starts, run setup, and make your CD the first in the boot list.
    Place your XP Windows disc in the CD drive and reboot.
    You should see "Welcome to Setup"
    Press R
    Select 1, then press Enter
    Enter the Administratrators Account password
    At the prompt enter the following:
    Copy d:\i386\csrsrv.dll c:\windows\system32\csrsrv.dll
    assuming the cd drive is D.  This will copy the csrsrv.dll file from the windows disc to the computer, replacing the corrupted csrsrv.dll.
  • Thanks so much John. My computer friend already tried that and everything else you could possibly think of! It's just dead. But thanks anyway
  • I know it's a bit late, but I was able to reverse it manually... as other have...
