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.

  1. When you reach the command prompt type the following command and then press Enter.
  2. bootcfg /rebuild
    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.
  3. The first prompt asks Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All).
  4. Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.
  5. The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.
  6. This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.
  7. The final prompt asks you to Enter OS Load options:.
  8. Type /Fastdetect here and press Enter.
  9. Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
  10. Assuming that a missing or corrupt boot.ini file was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

Reinstall windows root system 32 hal.dll


Do a start up repair.

Insert your Windows Operating System disc in the DVD. Reboot your computer and press any key when you see the phrase "Press Any Key to Boot in CD".


Select the start up repair and it should work after the loading process.


I hope this helps.

Notebook says that windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt <windows root>/system32/hal.dll.


Causes 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.

To fix it:
1) Restart your PC, sometimes the hall.dll error could be an error itself and your PC should boot up fine.
2) Go into the BIOS by pressing the Delete key as the laptop boots. Then navigate to disk boot priority and make sure this is set to your main hard drive (the one that has Windows installed on it). Save and exit the BIOS. Sometimes if you have a USB flash drive/Pen drive or external hard drive it may automatically switch the boot priority to that.
If these two quick steps don't fix the problem then head over to here and continue reading up about repairing the boot.ini file.

Have acer aspire one, when started got screen saying file missing or corrupt window root system 32 hal.dll, nothing else cannot bring up safe mode do not have windows xp cd, in nursing home cannot afford...


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.

Windows not start.They say: Reinstall <Windows root>System32/hal.dll.Where can I find this disc?


hi,
HAL.DLL stands for Hardware Abstraction Layer.
It is a Dynamic Link Library that connects to Kernal and Hence your Harware can talk to the software.

The File is available in the installer Disk with some similar name as Hal_ or Hall_.
But Honestly saying, try a safe mode to get to the desktop. Recover as max data possible from your desktop amd documents or my documents to a simple folder saved on a thumbdrive.

Repair the OS.
and check for the stability for say a week. if everything comes back to normal. Its good. else contact me .

Write a comment and vote me to keep in touch!
Bye for now.

Compaq pc recovery problem


Hi,
hal.dll is a dynamic-link-library.
Not necessarilly a part of your operating system.
could be a printer or other peripheral device driver.
try re-installing all of your other hardware device drivers.
