Simple test to see what could be wrong
remove everything from M/board except for 1 stick of memory and video card or leave it on on board video.
If it boots then one of your other units you removed is fitted wrong replace one at a time testing each time until you find the one fitted wrongly and check it
remeember the hard drive and CD if on same cable should be set to
Hard drive = Master
CD =slave
And the stripe should be toward No1 pin on M/board socket and to the 4 pin power plug on hard drive

Sony VIAO Desktop Computer HAL.DLL file missing or Corrupted.

Did u remove the pge file from C:...mmm u have to set it there.If hal.dll is missing here what u have to do.

HAL - Hardware Abstraction Layer
HAL is Microsoft's abbreviation for the Hardware Abstraction Layer, the technology and drivers that let the Windows NT, 2000, and XP operating systems communicate with your PC's hardware. HAL is one of several features--along with the NT file system (NTFS) that replaced the much less secure MS-DOS--that make NT-based operating systems more secure and reliable than Windows 95, 98, and Me.

HAL prevents applications from directly accessing your PC's system memory, CPU, or hardware devices (such as video and sound cards)--a method that can prevent many device conflicts and crashes. Unfortunately, HAL sometimes also slows or stops DOS games and programs, which need to load their own memory managers or control hardware directly for better performance.

With HAL in the way, developers must rewrite or even abandon their older software in favor of newer, HAL-compatible versions. Microsoft has pressured hardware makers to provide or support technologies such as MMX, DirectX, and 3D graphics language OpenGL, all of which allow fast but indirect access to the advanced high-performance features of video, sound, and CPU hardware. Such access also makes for a better visual experience when using Windows for Web and productivity applications; improved graphics performance is evident all over Windows XP's new user interface.

XP also offers some new compatibility-mode features that let you run programs meant to run under earlier operating systems, but, frankly, most DOS-based and even some Windows-based games simply won't work with the new OS.

So what you have to do is to boot from the CD.
Change the boot menu appropriately.
Then go to Recovery Console. Pressing R when the XP installation window comes up.
Then in the repair mode do the following.
Type this and Enter. .
expand X:\i386\hal.dl_ %systemroot%\System32\hal.dll
System root is the partition which holds Windows installation. So if its in C and if your CD drive is E...It has to be modified like this.
expand E:\i386\hal.dl_ C:\System32\hal.dll
This will solve ur problem. Remove the game from using safemode also. (Press F8 to go to safemode befor Windows boots).
This will solve ur problem. If it couldn't, do this.
Type each with an Enter.
Boot from your CD and follow the directions to start Recovery Console. Then:

Attrib -H -R -S C:\Boot.ini
DEL C:\Boot.ini
BootCfg /Rebuild

If this solution helps you, Please RATE the answer kindly. :)
Wish U Luck.

You have two options John :)

1 ) Contacting the manufacturer of your PC - If you call or email these people they will send you EVERY disc that come with your PC when it was purchased (You might have to pay for shipping)

2) Purchase a new OS - The most effective and cheapest way to buy a new OS is to go to a computer store (Small Business not future shop or best buy) and buy a 10 cent screw. This enables the retailer to sell you an OS for less than 100$ (mine was $90 Canadian) Because you purchased hardware they can do this if not they are not allowed to sell you the OS at that cost. :)


Comment on what happened id like to know.

If you need help finding the contact info for you PC manufacturer just ask

PLEASE rate this help as it will help me

There Can be various reasons my frnd first check out the CD you r using for installation is fine means nt scratched, then your CD rom, and at last boot your conputer from a floppy or dos and run Check disk if the hard drive chkdisk completes and it does nt show up that hard drive file sys is RAW, if it shows up then say your harddrive by bye, thats what i hav to do if such a hard drive shows up, and if you have guts then try using number of different software like test disk and HDD regenerator they may pull your hard drive 6 more months.
If that stuff does nt solve your prob please provide more detail and check your hardware to see if no pins etc are broken

Blue sceen

Well if you have installed any new hardware please try to remove it and see if that works.

However this usually happens when there is some new hardware added or it could also be because of incompatibe software installed.

There are many reasons for blue screen if you are able to boot with safe mode then try restoring your computer to earlier time.

If the above steps wont work I regret to inform you that you might need to reinstall the operating system and you might loose your data however you can take a back up by going to a technician.

Let me know if you need any further assistance and if you have a moment to accept and rate the solution I would greatly appreciate it.

Broadcom UNDI PXE-2.1 v10.0.9

The Broadcom PXE looks for a boot device/files from a network source if the network cable is't plugged in then you get the PXE-E61: Media test failure check cable, you can turn this off in the bios, when this doesn't find any boot information it moves onto the next boot device which is defined in the bios, usally the dvd drive then the HD. If this is a Altos server you have bought they are not supplied with an OS so it wont boot from the HD to begin with, if you already had a OS installed and it wont boot then there is something wrong with with the HD or the connectors or posibly the boot sectors are corrupted, if the device is making th tak tak noise the it is having trouble reading te device.

Wont boot into windows

Have you attempted to run in Safe mode?  Does it boot there.  If you boot to safemode and it locks on MUP.SYS most likely just the OS needs reinstalled.  Go in to CMOS (F10 on boot I think) and under tools there should be a hard drive test. 

Hope this helps
