Sony VIAO Desktop Computer HAL.DLL file missing or Corrupted.
Did u remove the pge file from C:...mmm u have to set it there.If hal.dll is missing here what u have to do.
HAL - Hardware Abstraction Layer
HAL is Microsoft's abbreviation for
the Hardware Abstraction Layer, the technology and drivers that let the Windows
NT, 2000, and XP operating systems communicate with your PC's hardware. HAL is
one of several features--along with the NT file system (NTFS) that replaced the
much less secure MS-DOS--that make NT-based operating systems more secure and
reliable than Windows 95, 98, and Me.
HAL prevents applications from directly accessing your PC's system memory, CPU,
or hardware devices (such as video and sound cards)--a method that can prevent
many device conflicts and crashes. Unfortunately, HAL sometimes also slows or
stops DOS games and programs, which need to load their own memory managers or
control hardware directly for better performance.
With HAL in the way, developers must rewrite or even abandon their older
software in favor of newer, HAL-compatible versions. Microsoft has pressured
hardware makers to provide or support technologies such as MMX, DirectX, and 3D
graphics language OpenGL, all of which allow fast but indirect access to the
advanced high-performance features of video, sound, and CPU hardware. Such
access also makes for a better visual experience when using Windows for Web and
productivity applications; improved graphics performance is evident all over
Windows XP's new user interface.
XP also offers some new compatibility-mode features that let you run programs
meant to run under earlier operating systems, but, frankly, most DOS-based and
even some Windows-based games simply won't work with the new OS.
So what you have to do is to boot from the CD.
Change the boot menu appropriately.
Then go to Recovery Console. Pressing R when the XP installation window comes up.
Then in the repair mode do the following.
Type this and Enter. .
expand X:\i386\hal.dl_ %systemroot%\System32\hal.dll
System root is the partition which holds Windows installation. So if its in C and if your CD drive is E...It has to be modified like this.
expand E:\i386\hal.dl_ C:\System32\hal.dll
This will solve ur problem. Remove the game from using safemode also. (Press F8 to go to safemode befor Windows boots).
This will solve ur problem. If it couldn't, do this.
Type each with an Enter.
Boot from your CD and follow the directions to start Recovery Console. Then:
Attrib -H -R -S C:\Boot.ini
If this solution helps you, Please RATE the answer kindly. :)
Wish U Luck.
