Borrow an XP install disk from anyone. Since you are not installing a new copy you don't need a keycode or serial number.

I am willing to bet however that you are going to need to do a re-install having lost this file to corruption. The source of the corruption is the unseen elephant in the room. Be aware that if you can get the computer running move any personal files to new new folder on the C drive. One that you create and not in 'My Documents' or any other windows created folder. When re-installing windows any/all windows folders are deleted and new, empty ones are created resulting in your loss of everything.

1. Boot the laptop;
2. press F12 to go to boot menu;
3. Selected CD/DVD-RW Drive;
4. Press any key to boot to CD; worked fine...
5. Press R to repair;
6. At the recovery console, selected 1: C:\WINDOWS and hit enter;
7. This brought me to C:\WINDOWS> prompt;
8. Typed this C:\WINDOWS> EXPAND -R D:\I386\c_437.nl_ C:\WINDOWS\system32\c_437.nls

type exit

9. And got the error message: The parameter is not valid. Try /? for help.

IF the disk is in the D drive then use this command instead: expand d:\i386\c_437.nl_ c:\windows\system32\

Wont run windows at all. Says: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM


You have a corrupt registry and it needs to be replaced.
Doing a System Restore will do this. Since you cannot run it from the hard drive, you will have to boot from a Windows DVD.
Here is the procedure

Get your windows restore cd (it's probably in your box) and boot to it. You may need to enter the boot selection menu and select "Boot from CD-ROM drive". It should then prompt you to press any key to boot from the cd, which you should do. Just follow the prompts, wait for the disc to load, and then press "r" for recovery when you are prompted.

The system folder does not delete itself, so run a virus scan as soon as you restore your computer.

Keep getting a blank screen and a pop up say system not fully installed


easy, you just have to install the OS again..
u can reinstall it through booting OS CD, maybe some OS instalation files are missing or corrupted.
or if you have the recovery CD from the hp vendor, just install it

<windows root>\system32\hal.dll is corrupt or missing


See if you can get into safe mode. If you can't then your system files are corrupted and you'll have to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

I believe on your compaq presario they have a built in factory restore and its either accessed by the F10 or F11 key when you first turn on the computer. You'll know when you first turn on the computer at the compaq logo screen.

Let me know if I can help you further.

Sony Vaio PCV-RS710G wont start up


one of the files in the system32 directory in the windows folder is corrupt, the files in the system32 folder contains vital files for the boot procedure, try to start the machine in "safe mode" by pressing F8 after the sony boot screen, if it allows you into the operating system you will need to choose "system Restore" take the time back to at least a week before your problems started DO NOT CREATE A RESTORE POINT
