Question about PC Chips M981G Motherboard
Hi, This is a known error and according to Microsoft could be caused by any of the following: ?Mismatched system files have been installed. ?A Service Pack installation has failed. ?A backup program that is used to restore a hard disk did not correctly restore files that may have been in use. ?An incompatible third-party program has been installed. This is better explained at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;156669&Product=winxp Hardware side, replacing either the CD or the HD drive (or sometimes, the cable) in some instances would rectify the error. Hope this be of some help. Good luck and kind regards.

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.
