AMD Ryzen release date, specifications and features: Three CPUs from the Ryzen 7 range now…
Running WinXP Pro.
Computer has been running fine.
Then installed SP3.
After that, at every startup I got 2 error messages.
The first error message said: AirGCFG.exe - Entry Point Not Found. The procedure entry point apsGetInterfaceCount could not be located in the dynamic link library wlanapi.dll
When I clicked 'ok' on that message, a second error message came up that
said: WZCSLDR2.exe - Entry Point Not Found. The procedure entry point apsInitialize could not be located in the dynamic link library wlanapi.dll
I have since learned that the 2 error messages could have been removed by simply updating the Dlink wireless driver. Before I discovered that fix, I did the following.
I put the PC in Safe Mode,
and I checked C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\wlanapi.dll
to see if the SP3 install had added a second wlanapi.dll file. I thought that might be causing the problem based on some suggestions I found in a google search.
Then I deleted another file that's almost identical. It was the file: WlanApi.dll. The W and A are capitalized and the file size was larger than the wlanapi.dll file that I didn't touch.
Within a second or two after deleting the WlanApi.dll file, the monitor froze.
I hit the soft reboot and now when the computer comes on, the monitor stays completely blank, nothing on it, no post, nothing. I turn the pc off and on and there are no beeps, all pc led's come on, the fans are on, the dvd led's light up for a moment, but monitor is blank.
Any ideas on what I can do to get the pc up and running again would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Fruit Bat,
Thanks for your suggestion.
I tried it, tapping on F8 while booting.
Nothing comes up on the monitor.
When I first start the PC, the keyboard's 3 led's light up. After that, the keyboard's led's don't light up when I hit the "numbers lock" and the
"caps lock" keys. Even after waiting 5 and 10 minutes.
I took a keyboard that works on my other PC, and connected it to this disabled PC, and the new
keyboard's led's stop operating correctly.
Any ideas what may be causing that?
I followed the steps for 'No POST' at this link:
and my PC is good now.
