Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
My fairly old toshiba laptop that was running 95 (i upgraded to windows xp afterwards)....now it has the hal.dll error now im trying to fix it but when i turn it on nothing shows on the screen
its running both windows xp and 95
98 mb or ram
i forgot the rest sorry
Well it must be an error when you install the windows XP...If you choose just to upgrade the your system then it might have an error on dll. Please reprogram your system i mean reformat your system. And not just upgrading well if ever you have an important data in the system then you must have a externat storage device then take it on your laptop.

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.
