Fix the user interface failure error

Our Windows 2000 server (Service Pack 3) gives the error "User Interface Failure. The logon user interface DLL Msgina.dll failed to load" when booting. We ran a Windows 2000 server setup, went to repair, selected Console, and replaced the msgina.dll from the original setup CD-ROM. But after I restarted I got the same error. What can we do now? I don't want to reinstall Windows, as I want to recover my Oracle database.
