Question about Gateway 310 Series (158920) PC Desktop
Ok, so i got this message when starting windows. i've researched on the internet on what to do. there are hundreds of answers to it. the most one used is to insert operating disk. i did. to press any key to boot from cd. i did. etc..... write a new boot sector typing fixboot at the command prompt. i did. various other things to fix my problem. but when i got to the part where people say to type "expand c:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system 32" i get access is denied. what else can i do? or why is it saying access denied?? thanks in advance to any responces.

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.
