Operatings systems disc not working properly

Yes Mmy pc has been acting slow and sluggish so I got my operatngs systems disc put it in restarted the pc pressed the f2 button went to advance bios choose cdrom for first boot up device. the pc reboots shows the data like bus #. then below it says press 'R' to display recovery options then after 5 seconds it shows press F11 to begin start recovery. but when I do so it loads up the recovery options then has 2 choices Full recovery (Destrctive) Full recovery (with backup) no matter which I choose it only uses then partition and not the operatings systems disc that came with the pc. and now my pc just goes to Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt : \system32\hal.dll Please re-install a copy of the file above. I've tried the restart pc go to advance bios make the cdrom the first bootup device but it still will not use the cd instead of the partition also I could not find it on the list but my pc is an AMD W3644 series.

The cd that you got with your system may be a recovery cd; not an operating system disc.

My laptop is very slow

Hello there,
When a laptop tends to be performing very slow. There are different factors that could be contributing to the problem. It acting sluggishly tends to be quite annoying, frustrating, time consuming and not encouraging to use.
The cause could be from the RAM size, the RAM is what determines the speed of the laptop, if it is large, it will perform faster but if it is low, it will perform very slowly. RAM can be upgraded, and that involves you turning the laptop to the back and unscrewing it open, you will see a processor connected to the mother board, that is the RAM, check the size and try to replace it with a larger RAM.
Also, if there is a virus on the system, it can contribute to making the IBM perform slowly. Try to install AVG anti-virus free edition 2011 on the system. That will help you eraze the corrupted file and protectyour laptopfrom being exposed to any virus of any kind.
Ensure you are not running on windows vista or windows 7, try to ensure you are running on windows XP, as the IBMs mother board will act sluggishly if windows vista or windows 7 is the current operating system.
Be sure not to have too many load on the hard disc also. Try to ensure you are using an external hard disc for the laptop to save large files. As saving too many applications and folders on the hrd disc can make the laptop act very slow.
Would be glad to know if this information washelpful to you. All the best. Elect_Comp
