Re: Aspire 3500 startup problem
Boot from the recovery or windows disc that came with your system then select repair!!!
if you dont have a disc borrow one from a friend. normally when u turn the laptop on it will display a key sequence for e.g Press Del to Enter Setup and F9 for boot options Press F9 then select cd rom to boot from the cdrom drive..

CauseCauses of the "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error include, naturally, a damaged hal.dll DLL file or a hal.dll file that has been deleted or moved from its intended location.
Additional causes may include a damaged or missing boot.ini file or possibly a physically damaged hard drive.

Repair or replace the boot.ini file.

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
