Just recently my laptop would not load windows and after the main load screen it would go black and then a small window would pop up. It reads: lsass.exe - Unable To Locate Component--this application has failed to start because LSASR.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Do you have the installation disk? If so this should solve your problem.

Ok try this, hopefully this can fix your system.

  • Put your XP disk into your CD-ROM drive.
  • When you boot your computer, there will be a message that says "Press any key to boot from cd.."
  • Press a key to boot from the Windows CD.
  • You will enter setup. Press r to enter the recovery console.
  • Press 1 when it asks you which installation you want to log onto, and press enter.
  • Type the administrator password when asked, and press enter.
  • Type the following exactly as you see it, and press enter:
    expand CD drive:\i386\ntdsapi.dl_ %SystemRoot%\windows\system32\ntdsapi.dll
  • Type the following exactly as you see it, and press enter:
    xcopy c:\windows\servicepackfiles\i386\ntdsapi.dll c:\windows\system32

Have you changed the boot sequence in bios to make the cdrom the first device?

Do a repair installation and then:

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Add a link to this topic so that malware tech can see what steps have been taken here

With Toshibas, you have to hold 0 (zero) key while turning laptop on to boot from the CD.

On the other hand, LSASR.dll doesn't look like legit file.
