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.

Blue screen appears & keep restarting


It is possible that the malware is to blame, in which case a computer technician will need to sort it out.

I think it may be a bad memory module or loose memory module connection.

Take care!

This message appeared " driver_irql_not_less_or_equal" TECHNICAL


Hello !
This system-halt message occurs when a process (in kernel-mode and not user mode) or driver tried to access a memory address to which it did not have permission. The most common cause is an incorrect or corrupted pointer that references an incorrect address in the memory.
When this occurs in a user-mode application, it generates an access violation. When it occurs in kernel mode, it generates a STOP 0x0000000A message. If you encounter this error while upgrading to a newer version of Windows, it might be caused by a device driver, a system service, a virus scanner, or a backup tool that is incompatible with the new version.
This error usually occurs after the installation of a buggy device driver, system service, or BIOS. To resolve it quickly, restart your computer, and press F8 at the character-mode menu that displays the operating system choices. Choose the "Last Known Good Configuration" option. This option is most effective when only one driver or service is added at a time.
Usually, from my experience this rarely happens, but it is a buggy DRIVER installed by you.
Get back with more details please if it still happens. (Tip : Try to re-install all drivers using the manufacturer's website).

Irql error code 0x0000000a


stuart607

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

Not able to complete windows xp setup


First let's try to "flash" the BIOS to correct the erroneous data crashes. Here's the link for the motherboard:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=P4VM8

After flashing go back to the BIOS and setup the appropriate settings, after that reboot and try to load Windows. If this fails then possibly you may have faulty memory modules or they are not seated correctly in the motherboard, try swapping them, hopefully they are the same. I hope this helps.

Problem of Window XP installation


usually when installation of windows fails is from more than one reason and lets hope that ur hard drive is not damaged (contains bad sectors).
try these steps :
1- use a different windows cd and a different cd rom if u can find one.
2- change the sequense of drives by changing their jumper positions and data cables ( master, slave)
3- try to clear cmos with the jumper located usually near the mainboards battery (short it for 3 seconds)
4- try ( low-level format) to ur hard drive and reinstall windows.

if the message is still seen then your hard drive could be seriously damaged.
