Nearly all computers made in recent years use a CR2032 battery. You can pop the old one out to make sure, but if it's about the size of a quarter this is probably it.

in google when you find the download go to system32 and replace the inf with the new one you just downloaded. that should fix the error

your going to have to restore your computer back to factory defaults cause the operating system is corrupt. Either F10 or F11 should take you into the factory onboard restore. If you can't get to it then your going to need the discs to restore the computer with.

You have a system file either corrupt or missing.
Re install windows then restore your backup data.
Hope this gets you going again.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
