I bought my laptop about 2 months ago. About 1 month ago it failed to boot and has not been able to boot since then. I have tryed booting the laptop hard drive with my desktop and scaning for malware with multipul programs, but nothing has turned up. When I try to boot with my laptop, if I turn off automatic reboot on system failure I get a blue screen after about 10 minutes of windows trying to load. The blue screen tells me that a dll file may be corrupt. I have tryed replacing 4 dll files it told me was corrupt, but now it doesn't tell me any more files are corrupt and so I couldn't continue replacing the files. I decided to restore the original corrupt files for now. While running the virus scanner HouseCall, the scanner paused for several seconds on many files in the system32 directory. I wrote them all down and it turns out the scanner reacted the same for all the files I tryed to replace. Here is a list of all the files HouseCall took a while on (Some files may be misspelled):
All files in %system32% of laptop hard drive
authz.dll
crypt32.dll
cryptui.dll
divx.dll
ialmdd5.dll
ialmdnt5.dll
mpr.dll
msgina.dll
msvcrt.dll
odbc32.dll
odbcint.dll
olecnv32.dll
rpcrt4.dll
scesrv.dll
services.exe
setupapi.dll
sfc_os.dll
shdocvw.dll
sxs.dll
umpnpmgr.dll
unicode.nls
urlmon.dll
user32.dll
userenv.dll
usp10.dll
win32k.sys
winlogon.exe
winsrv.dll
winsta.dll
wintrust.dll
wow32.dll

I tryed replacing all those files listed and my laptop still won't start, anyone have any ideas?

I also don't have a Windows XP CD so I would rather not have to format if there is any way to fix my laptop.
