Ok so I got my computer to somehow stop reading the lsass.exe error and it actually loads and tried to do a drive check and it completes the drive check and then when it tried to load after the drive check I get the Blue Screen saying Error CONFIG_LIST_FAILED is there anyway to get around this I have tried to boot in all the safe modes and have not been able to successfully boot at all if anyone has any other ideas that I can attempt that would be so much help thank you very much.

If you do not have a windows xp disk, download the following file: rc.iso....go here..

make sure in the bios the cd drive is the first boot device....put the cd in the cd drive..boot your computer....

then type fixmbr press enter
no joy ....
type in fixboot press enter

nojoy...

Type bootcfg /scan and press Enter

if it says total identified window installs: 1

Type in bootcfg /rebuild and press Enter...

It will identify your XP installation...type Y once you see this prompt.

You will be prompted to enter the load identifier...type in Microsoft XP Home Edition or Microsoft XP Professional depending on whichever version you have...press enter

You will be prompted to enter the load options...type in /fastdetectand press Enter

Type in exit and press Enter

remove the cd

Reboot

you don't need the recovery console cd (rc.iso) if you have the xp cd...
just run the commands from the repair section of your xpcd...

Go HERE for all the drivers available from HP for your system. Choose your OS and you should be given all the drivers.
MOBO Chipset
Video
Lan
Sound

In that order
