    The system boots to a page that says "windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \system32\hal.dll. Please reinstall".

    The Cd drives are set to boot at startup, but, the Windows reinstallation CD will not boot.

Try going into safe mode once your computer boots up press F8 repeatedly through the first stage of start up then after it should ask you what you want to go on click "Safe Mode" and when your on safe mode if it start up then we know it's not too late to fix it.

Go to My Computer Right click on your "Local Disk Drive" click properties "Tools" where it says "Error Checking" click check now tick both boxes then click start then something will come up saying would you like to scedule a scan when your computer next restarts click "YES" then restart the computer then allow it to scan then see if it works after that.

Good luck. Hope my solution helped.

  3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
  4. Once your on the Windows desktop, click on Start>All Programs>Accesories>System Tools then select System restore
  5. Choose the recent date or restore point that your computer is working fine.

I have pcchips m955g motherboard, comp reboots during


Hi,
If the computer keeps rebooting when you first start it up it is quite possible that the hard drive is broken. It keeps looking for the start up boot sector, but it's broken so it keeps trying again..and again...and well you know.

I have windows xp a lot of times when I restart my computer a white screen comes up it wont re-boot at times it boots up with a white screen


sounds like its a software problem , however its wise to rule out if its a hardware problem, best thing to do is try to start it up in safemode , this is easily done by retarting comp and pressing F8. now if safe mode shows your desktop it is most likely software, save any file you dont want to loose and try remastering if your comp came with installation disc restart with disc inside . if not it probably has a partition you need to look in manual for the remastering solution to this , could be retart f11 or retart f8 , every comp is different , best advice is to google your model for remastering my computer. good luck

Start up error message issue: floppy disk fail


if im correct, you havent installed a floppy drive yet...
while the comp is booting press esc (on some comps its F10 it should say on the screen) and access the boot sequence..in there there is a list of boot items...they always list floppy drive as the first boot drive in case you need to recover your comp...remove floppy drive from your boot list making sure that your hardrive (C) is first drive to boot.
After you get your comp set up, you may want to change that sequence in case you ever have problems with your HDD

My Mac wont work. blinking Folder with "?"


When the "?" mark comes up, it means it's looking for the operating system to boot to. It can be fixed by opening system preferences and in the startup settings, select your operating system as the tarted startup. It should speed up boot up time.

Desktop not appear


Sounds like either you have a process running that is locking out the explorer shell from running properly, or you have hard drive corruption (which is getting pretty rare). Try opening task manager (control-alt-delete) in safe mode and then looking for any processes running at the top of the CPU stack, and then cancel them one by one to see if explorer (desktop) appears. Actually, if you can get task manager up, click on APPLICATIONS along the top, and then NEW TASK at the bottom and then type in EXPLORER and AFAIK it should load your desktop (or try to).

If these all fail, you want to try to re-install the OS, and also check the hard drive for corruption using diskcheck.

Good luck...
