Having major issues with reformatting Acer Aspire One

Computer is registering a windowsroot/system32/hal.dll file missing and needs to be reinstalled. I have been told to reinstall a copy of Windows XP. These computers have no optical drives yet they sent me a CD for reformatting the computer. Plugged in an external dvd rom, but it is not recognizing it nor is it allowing me to restore the computer.....
HELP! have a major presentation tomorrow and can't get information completed.

    Go into the bios and make sure your external cd-rom is the first boot device.

Sure, calm down. You need to get a bootable cd like UBCD. This cd not only boots, but installs a cd driver, allowing full access of CD Drive in a DOS Environment. Check out the UBCD website, download it, and turn the computer on, with the cd in the drive, your computer will boot, so boot the cd, when the options load, hit the key "r", and windows will repair.
Good Luck

You need to repair your windows, with either using Recovery or get the external CD then reinstall operating system. Hal.dll usually still in your system32 folder but corrupted..

Keep getting this message <window


Hello,
  • "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
    <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.
    Please re-install a copy of the above file."

  • "<Winnt_root>\System32\Hal.dll missing or corrupt:
    Please re-install a copy of the above file."

  • "Cannot find \Windows\System32\hal.dll"

  • "Cannot find hal.dll"
The "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error displays shortly after the computer is first started. Windows XP has not yet fully loaded when this error message appears. CauseCauses of the "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error include, naturally, a damaged hal.dll DLL file or a hal.dll file that has been deleted or moved from its intended location.Additional causes may include a damaged or missing boot.ini file or possibly a physically damaged hard drive.

    Please let me know you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

Missing windows root system32\hal.dll


Hi
There are few different ways that the "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error may present itself, with the first listing being the most common

Use the following links
http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000490.htm
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findbyerrormessage/a/missinghaldll.htm

Note: if the repair is not successful then you would have to redo the entire OS. This would mean data loss on the computer.

Thanks for using Fixya

Cannot play old type of cd or dvd


HAL.DLL is Hardware Abstraction Layer. Dynamic Link Library. You will need to reinstall this file for the cd-rom to work properly. You can download the lastest version file from this web site: http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-les.shtml?hal
