Ok, so here's the thing, my laptop (Fujitsu Lifebook S6240 Series) was getting laggy and I decided to reformat the who thing (1st time). What a huge mistake that was. And I don't think all the needed files were copied as I was missing the file kbdblr.dll to initialise setup and I had to download it along with Windows SP2 for XP Home Edition (on a mac mini that belongs to my sister). Did that and it got the file burned onto a disk along with the SP2. However, it's now asking for the file kbdbu.dll and I know that there will be other files that would be needed and I'm running out of disks to burn them onto :). I know you'll just say that I could just insert the CD as it asks but my OS came pre-installed. So no CD. Can anyone tell me the other .dll that are needed so I can just download them at one go? :)


Help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks :)

How did you format, and install Windows without CD? Recovery partition?

Yeah. Followed the instructions from the menu and I might have gotten something wrong along the way apparently. It is my first time trying to reformat something.

I'd do it again. If same thing happens, that would mean something wrong with recovery partition (possibly hard drive problem). Those missing files can't be a result of your mistake(s) (if any).

It came with a product recovery cd, recovery companion cd and software drivers cd.

Tried it a couple of times and yet the .dll error appears.

Edit: There might have been some human error involved somewhere along the line >_<

Missing files may be also caused by dirty CD. Did you try to clean it?
If nothing helps, run HD diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287

Hmm... Haven't though about cleaning the CDs. Sometimes the obvious is ofthen overlooked.
As for the link, I'm afraid that I woun't be able to use it at all. Basically when I saw my desktop that one time when the errors started to appear, there were no icons and such. If the cleaning fails I'm gonna have to get it to the professionals...
