they can be the ones to replace the missing ntoskrnl.exe
watch out for high costs and charges for repairs

And how long would it take to fix it? Would they be able to do it there and then if they had a XP Pro cd?
Also, any ideas on how I could wipe the computer from the screens I can get to? (the black ones, have no access to the blue 'welcome log in' etc screens, so can't even log in..)

look at that site
important information and pictures can be taken out of harddrive
you can use a ide/sata 2.0 cable
if you do it this way its better to use the power supply you hook up harddrive to
thats cheaper than repair shop
http://www.newegg.co... sata 2.0 cable

I'd rather take a hammer to my hard drive and throw it all in the skip!

and do a repair...wndows xp pro upgrade...or use ide sata cable 2.0
or slave it to another computer
your probably right spending that much money is too much

And when I take my hammer to the hard drive, where about's is the information stored? And is it safe to hit it?!

I supose that you didn't tried this above. Well we can try another thing. If you can copy x:\I386\Driver.cab c:\system32\ntoskrnl.exe from another computer to flopy disk. Then from flopy disk on your computer type copy a:\I386\Driver.cab c:\system32\ntoskrnl.exe /v press enter, take the flopy out and restart your computer.

And no I didn't put the XP cd in, as the broken computer is XP Professional, and the cd I have is XP Home Edition. Does that matter? Or will I be able to retrieve the missing file from the XP Home Edition cd?

theres a tutorial on slaving your harddrive to another computer
save your pictures and valuable info that way
while its slaved you could try install the missing ntoskrnl.exe
after you retrieve your pictures and stuff
that might work.....if it does then try it
see if it boots up

But I will attempt to get hold of a XP Pro cd first. Then I'll try the Xp Home Edition cd, see if there is any luck with that.
Thanks to everyone who has taken time out to help me, I really do appreciate it. I'll let you know how it goes.

I am experiencing a similar problem on my pc, Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt <Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe. Please re-install the following file.
I have Windows XP Home edition and luckily have the original recovery cds that came wih the computer but before the re-installation begins, I get a warning that all the data on my hard drive will be lost.
I couldn't bear that coz it has 6 years of family photos on it. Please help!

I would advise you seek expert advice and help, though.
Also - if anyone is interested.. my computer is still intact but is not in use! It has just sat there on the table since it broke. And still, no one else knows!
