xp.jpgIf you had or you will have the chance to install the new Windows Xp SP3 (Beta or RC) you could incur into an endless reboot once you turn the computer off and on again (this could also happen after downloading a hotfix). This issue will also prevent the operative system from booting to Safe Mode, cutting you off from any procedure to uninstall the just installed SP3. During this endless process the computer could return the famous Blue Screen of Death with the following error messages:

  • STOP: c0000139 {Entry Point Not Found}

    The procedure entry point GdiGetBitmapBitSize could not be located in the dynamic link library GDI32.dll.

  • STOP: c0000139

    The procedure entry point SMapLS_IP_EBP_24 could not be located in the daynamic link library Kernel32.dll.

This issue is due to people trying to install SP3 with build version v.3311 or v.3244 or earlier. To fix it and prevent your system from rebooting endlessly, read this trick:

  • Boot from Windows CD.
  • Press “R” to open up a Recovery Console’s command prompt window.
  • Select the Windows Installation to use (usually is C:\Windows).
  • If prompted for a password just hit enter.
  • Make a backup of existing GDI32.dll in system folder with following command:REN C:\Windows\System32\GDI32.dll C:\Windows\System32\GDI32.dll.orig
  • Copy backup GDI32.dll from c:\windows\servicepackfiles\i386\gdi32.dll to the system folder with the following commands:copy C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386\GDI32.dll C:\Windows\System32\GDI32.dll Replace “C” with your own system drive letter.
  • Restart your computer

    Hey, so I was able to put the gdi32.dll in the right places, and the blue screen I get doesn’t complain about that anymore. Now it pops up saying •STOP: c0000139

    The procedure entry point SMapLS_IP_EBP_24 could not be located in the daynamic link library Kernel32.dll.

    So how can I fix that?

  2. Ryan Says:

    I also typed it in and got “The parameter is not valid.” What am I doing wrong?
