Do a start up repair.
Insert your Windows Operating System disc in the DVD. Reboot your computer and press any key when you see the phrase "Press Any Key to Boot in CD".
Select the start up repair and it should work after the loading process.
I hope this helps.

HAL.DLL error seems to be caused by corruption of the MFT and root directory. This usually results from a blue screen crash when playing flash video from the web.
The easy fix: Press ALT+F10 at boot-up and run the factory restore. This will lose all of your installed programs and data and restore the machine to its original state.
The 'get your data back' fix: You will need a second (working) XP PC with a CD ROM drive and a standard Windows XP CD (a manufacturer's 'factory restore' disc will not work.)
Follow the instructions here http://komku.blogspot.com/2008/11/install-windows-xp-using-usb-flash-disk.html to create a bootable XP USB memory stick. Also copy C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOCHK.EXE onto the memory stick, You may need that later. DO NOT follow the part about booting off the stick and deleting partitions. Instead...
Boot off the memory stick and select the TXT option. Follow the options to get to the recovery console. Run CHKDSK C: at the recovery console. Once CHKDSK has finished, reboot and everything should be fine. You may find the console asking for the location of AUTOCHK.EXE. It is on the flash drive, which (I think) is mapped as drive U:
Keep the memory stick with your Aspire One at all times, because you never know when you'll need it. Mine has done this about four times in six months.

HAL.DLL Missing or Corrupt
If you get an error regarding a missing or corrupt hal.dll file, it might simply be the BOOT.INI file on the root of the C: drive that is misconfigured
Insert and boot from your WindowsXP CD.
At the first R=Repair option, press the R key
Press the number that corresponds to the correct location for the installation of Windows you want to repair.
Typically this will be #1
Type bootcfg /list to show the current entries in the BOOT.INI file
Type bootcfg /rebuild to repair it
Take out the CD ROM and type exit

That file can be found on the XP installation CD.
You will need to boot up on that CD and select recovery console. Try this:
You may also be able to boot up to Safe Mode Command Prompt and run system restore:
1. Restart your system
2. When the system first boots, type F8 to bring up the boot menu
3. Select the Safe Mode with Command Prompt option
4. Log-on as administrator if needed
5. At your command prompt type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
6. Hit Enter
6. This will open the system restore wizard

Yes the hal.dll is one of the files it needs to boot up, It gets all of the hardware together..I own and ASUS and they pretty good about sending disk. Pull the disk out that came with the system. Just put it your CD and then go into Windows Explorer and look for that file. Its probably under i386 folder or Win32 folder. Once you find it then just drag it over to the c: drive and you are ready..I didn't get a cd player in mine, so you probably didn't either. I ended up buying one from Best Buy, it works really good, it's an HP.But anyway if you can copy that file over to the C: drive of your computer then you will be ok...it didn't way anything else did it> Let me know how it turn out..

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.
