Hi shecter2003, if you can get inside of windows, try doing this:

1. Click Start > run > cmd
2. A black box should show, type there sfc /scannow then press Enter

That should fix and scan all of your system files & it should fix most dll file errors. Check this out for reference.

Hope this helps.

HAL.DLL is missing or corrupted, xp doesn't boot


if it was running for more than 30 hours, it wasn't doing much. You can try copying hal.dll off of a known, good-working XP pc, and replace it with the one on your broken PC. It's better if you extract it from i386 folder but grabbing it from another pc should work fine.

<windows root>\system32\hal.dll file is


Resolution

1. Restart the PC. The hal.dll error could be a fluke.

2. Check for proper boot order in BIOS. You might see the hal.dll error if the boot order in BIOS is first looking at a hard drive other than your main hard drive.

Note: If you've recently changed your boot order or recently flashed your BIOS, this may be what's causing your problem.

3. Run Windows XP System Restore from a command prompt. If this doesn't work or you're receiving the hal.dll error message before you're able to complete this process, move on to the next step.

4. Repair or replace the boot.ini file. This will work if the cause of the problem is actually Windows XP's boot.ini file and not the hal.dll file, which is often times the case.

Note: If repairing the boot.ini does correct the hal.dll issue but the problem reappears after a reboot and you've recently installed Internet Explorer 8 in Windows XP, uninstall IE8. In this specific situation, IE8 could be the root cause of your hal.dll problem.

5. Write a new partition boot sector to the Windows XP system partition. If the partition boot sector has become corrupt or isn't properly configured, you may receive the hal.dll error.

6. Recover data from any bad sectors on your hard drive. If the physical part of your hard drive that stores any part of the hal.dll file has been damaged, you're likely to see errors like this.

7. Restore the hal.dll file from the Windows XP CD. If the hal.dll file is truly the cause of the problem, restoring it from the original Windows XP CD may do the trick.

8. Perform a repair installation of Windows XP. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.

9. Perform a clean installation of Windows XP. This type of installation will completely remove Windows XP from your PC and install it again from scratch.

Note: While this will almost certainly resolve any hal.dll errors, it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

Important: If you can't gain access to your files to back them up, you should understand that you will lose them all if you continue with a clean installation of Windows XP.

10. Test the hard drive. If all else has failed, including the clean installation from the last step, you're most likely facing a hardware issue with your hard drive but you'll want to test it to be sure.

If the drive fails any of your tests, replace the hard drive and then complete a "new" installation of Windows XP.

Missing mfc71u.dll from my computer


HI,
You can download the dll file from this link
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dl...s.shtml?mfc71u
and save it to your desktop.

Then unzip the file and save in desktop. Now, go to C: drive -> Windows -> System32 file -> in the file look for mfc71u.dll ... right click on it -> Rename and add at the end .old extension, like mfc71u.dll.old. Now go to desktop and copy the unzipped file mfc71u.dll and paste it into the system32 folder. Close window and reboot PC.
If you don't get the missing .dll message you can delete the two files on desktop.

Thank you

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt. <windows root>\system32\hal.dll.


This is a posible solution, boot your windows in safe mode with command prompt (by pressing 'f8' as the windows splash screen appears a menu will by prompted with this option), enter this:

C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

in the command prompt and follow the instructions to restore the system.

If this doesn't work the problem may be a faulty hard disk, contact again if your problem persists.
