"<Winnt_root>\System32\Hal.dll missing or corrupt:

  1. Verify the boot.ini file is found on the computer by using a boot diskette or use your Windows CD to get to the MS-DOS "C:\>" prompt.
  2. From this prompt edit the boot.ini, verify that it is pointing to the correct operating system, and that no anomalies are found within the file. Below is a listing of what to verify
  • If only one operating system is on the computer verify that the boot.ini only has one operating system listed. In some situations an alternate configuration line may be added for the same operating system, leaving the improper line.
  • Verify that the "default=" line as well as the operating system line are the same and that they are pointing to the correct operating system.
Verify that the computer has the hal.dll file

From the MS-DOS "C:\>" prompt quickly determine if your computer has the "hal.dll" file by typing "dir hal.dll /s" at the prompt. If the computer returns a "File not found" message, the hal.dll has been deleted.

To recover this file boot the Windows operating system CD and choose the option to "Restore", "Repair", or "Recover." This option will prompt you for the Windows installation to use, the administrators password and will allow you to restore the proper file. At the MS-DOS prompt type the below command.

expand C:\i386\hal.dl_ D:\windows\system32\

In the above example "D" would be the letter of your CD-ROM drive and "C" the letter of the drive your operating system is installed on. For example, your disc drive may be D: and your hard drive is likely C:.

Winnt_root>\System32\Hal.dll missing or corrupt:

if you have a windows cd you can do a system restore from it or at the boot screen some computers have a system recovery so you can use system restore without a disk, if you can use system restore, restore your computer to a earlier time and that should solve your problem

<windows root>\system32\hal.dll is corrupt or missing

See if you can get into safe mode. If you can't then your system files are corrupted and you'll have to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

I believe on your compaq presario they have a built in factory restore and its either accessed by the F10 or F11 key when you first turn on the computer. You'll know when you first turn on the computer at the compaq logo screen.

Let me know if I can help you further.

C0000139 Entry Point not Found computer will not boot-up.


Are you getting this error with RPCRT4.DLL. If you do you need to replace this file from the Xp disk.
If you cannot follow, send me a message at and hope we can talk over gmail or skype and i'll guide you through.

It may be difficult for you to do it.But if you could do, here the steps are :--
1.Use the Windows XP Recovery Console to replace the RPCRT4.dll file with the original version. To do this, follow these steps:
Insert your Windows XP CD-ROM into the computer's CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer from the CD-ROM.
Some computers may require that you modify the basic input/output system (BIOS) settings before you can start the computer from a CD-ROM. For information about how to modify BIOS, see your computer documentation.
At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.
Press the number key that corresponds to the installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER.
Type the Administrator password, and then press ENTER.
With the Windows XP CD-ROM still in the CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:
cd system32
ren RPCRT4.dll RPCRT4.old
cd \i386
expand RPCRT4.dl_ BootDriveLetter:\windows\system32

It'll fix your problem. :-)

Dll c:/windows/system32/digeste.dll is not valid windows image " this message is appearing on my computer compaq presario laptop - it seems some virus has entered- please let me know how to remove it

Try to download this program and it should remove the virus. It is malwarebytes and it is one i highly recommend. This is just a trial version so you won't have to pay anything but it won't actively scan your system. You will have to do a manual scan each time.

When you do a scan set it to do a full system scan and i hope you have something to do for a couple hours.

You can download the hal.dll file from this site most of the windows missing dll files you can find here.

Also download windows nt or xp boot image from the net and create floppies or cd rom from that to boot up.
