Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
Hi there, I need some help for my PC. It doesn't start normally, it says you need:\system 32\hal.dll, I have to tell you I wiped by mistake shell extension and restore does'nt work. On my desktop only my dokuments can open and I'm using that page to get on this internet. Thank you Adi from albania.
The first thing to check is your boot order.. do this when the pc starts up by pressing which ever key is indicated to enter 'setup' usually f2, f12, or delete. and look through for boot devices or boot sequence. make sure it's floppy, cdrom, hdd drive which may be listed or hard drive, internal drive, etc).
Do you have your windows disk? If so try this... put in the cd and restart the computer and when prompted to "pressany key to boot from cd' do so. Enter Windows XP Recovery Console by click on R. The Recovery Console is an advanced diagnostic mode of Windows XP with special tools that will allow you to restore the boot.ini file.
The bootcfg utility will scan your hard drives for any Windows XP installations and then display the results. Follow the remaining steps to add your Windows XP installation to the boot.ini file.

I am going to start with the assumption you have already tried to reboot, then next choices from there go kinda like this...
Run windows XP restore from command prompt. (From
safe ,mode type C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and press Enter. 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.
Replace the boot.ini file (run msconfig) 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.
Right click on c: drive, click
on properties, then tools, click on the error checking button, the put a
checkmark in each box, Click start and it may say it needs to run on next
reboot click OK the reboot. 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.
Run a repair install of the operating system. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.
