Re: MY LAPTOP DOESNT START
Yes HAL.DLL is needed when you start your computer. It is a file that checks all of your hardware and will not boot without it. You need to use your Automated System Restore disk to be able to start your computer and it will load the correct files. On the down side if you do not make backups of all of your data then the data will be lost.

Windows XP at this point is very buggy due to lack of support
Try to access your unit in safe mode and see if it works
when powering on press constantly F8 then select safe mode
if you are able to get in - try to save your information
if unable to get in and still getting a blue screen it could be either a system failure or hardware failure
This stop code, "0x0000000A irql_not_less_or_equal" normally refers to a driver problem. So this is one of the few times where the files that the BSOD lists actually is important. Next I would try to boot the computer into safemode and reinstall/drivers related to that file to see if this make a difference.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions
I believe that you have a bad system board. If you can get onto acer support and send a message to ther technical staff, I think that they will confirm this diagnosis. If you were dealing with a hard drive problem, the computer would try to start up and give you some type of error message on your screen. Additionally, your power supply for a laptop is on the system board, unlike a desktop where the power supply is separate from the system board. I am assuming that your have confirmed you are connected to a power supply and your problem is not a lack of power (a bad battery). Please rule out the power question first.
You can also try to remove all power sources from the laptop and let it sit for a time, then attach the power and see if it resets and starts up. (this is a simple thing you can do to attempt to recover you laptop. I suggest you try this, but don't have much hope it will change anything)
I am sorry I do not have more positive news for you. However, I hope that this information gets you on the right track to solving your problem.
If you are facing this issue while installing Windows, Most probably there is an issue with the memory card. If you have two memory modules try to use one of the memory modules in each slot at a time. If you have only one memory stick then try to use it one by one on each slot. If you it does not work then probably you might have to replace the memory stick.
