Problem with XP SP3

  maddogingo 17:47 27 Apr 08

Having read the feature on XP SP3 in the June edition of PC Advisor I attempted to install this. The download and installation went well but on rebooting my laptop I got this error message:
stop:c0000139 the procedure entry point GDIGETBITMAPBITSIZE could not be located in the dynamic link library GDI32.dll
I tried going in via Safe Mode (via F8) with a view to doing a Restore but ended up with the same error message. Advice on the MicrosoftTechNet website suggested booting up from the XP CD, doing a Repair etc. I tried getting into the BIOS to set this up but was asked for a Password. I tried the three I normally use and got kicked off! I'm stuck! HELP!

What BIOS? Award, Pheoix?
most manufacturers have a backdoor passwords that may get you in.

BIOS is Phoenix. Just went back to the login screen so I guess I can have another go if you could provide the back door Password.
Appreciate your help with this.
