    HP Mini 110 with windows XP home

    I ran windows xp disk cleaner on my wife's HP mini 110. Now I can't get the initial startup screen that allows you to check email, etc. without loading windows. Then to load windows, you check on the windows logo and windows xp loads manually. When I check the BIOS there are no drives listed in the boot order, which would make sense since you have to manually load windows from the initial startup screen. However, I don't understand how the initial startup screen works nor how to go about troubleshooting the problem.

    By turning off startup items, I found the source of the problem to be startup item "Apoint". Not allowing C:\Program Files\Apoint\Apoint.exe to run eliminated the DLL could not be opented error. However, I have tried installing the latest driver from Dell (which was the same version I was running) and have not been able to correct the problem. Looking at the driver details, I found one DLL file which is in C:\Windows\System32\Vxdif.dll location. Running regsvr32 Vxdif.dll I get the error: Vxdif.dll was loaded but the Dll Register Server entry point was not found. I haven't been able to find this driver as it is not in the downloaded driver package from Dell.

    You could try uninstalling the Apoint program from control panel's "remove programs" section. Then run a mild registry cleaner, then open up
    device manager and uninstall or delete the device associated with Apoint (presumably a keyboard touch pad driver?).
    Then reboot the system and reinstall device driver, and software if applicable.

    I have looked for the program, but it is not listed in the control panel's "remove programs" section. It seems to be installed via the driver package. The driver package has 5 DLL files and I have replaced them all manually. I found the other DLL by looking in the driver details and it shows a DLL file in the system32 section. That is also an Alps DLL and seems to be the one causing the problem, however, I can't seem to find one anywhere, just a lot of talk about it (Vxdif.dll).
