Hi when you turn the machine on keep pressing F8 key until the sub menu appears. Once in there select last known good configuration. press enter and allow the computer to boot. If the same thing happens repeat the above but select safe mode and see if it boots then. If it doesn't you will have to reinstall windows if it does shut down and restart.

Thanks J

Try entering the boot menu by pressing F8 when the computer is doing its self test but before windows trys to start. Then choose boot to last known configuration. Try to remove any programs you installed before this problem

Reboot into Safe Mode by repeatingly tapping on F8 while in process of rebooting and then select "last known good configuration". If that fails reboot again to safe mode and select safe mode with command prompt and in the command prompt type "chkdsk /f /r " <enter>

If that doesnt work do place your Windows CD into the Cd-Rom, reboot and select option "Repair"

When I try to boot up my Compaq Presario model no SR 1420UK, I get the message: “Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows...


You can download the hal.dll file from this site www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?hal 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.

IF YOUR HARD DISK IS AN FAT32 PARTITION ITS VERY EASY AND YOU CAN USE WIN98 BOOTDISK WHIHC IS SINGLE DISK AND CAN ACCESS THE WINDOWS SYSTEM FOLDER AND COPY THIS HALL.DLL FILE.

AFTER GETTING PROMPT GO TO
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32
COPY THE HALL.DLL

problem solved

Computer will not start


Hello,

Choose Last Known Good Configuration. If that doesn't work, choose Safe Mode and then do a system restore to roll back your PC.

Windows XP Home Edition on HP Pavilion a367c


Are you able to successfully enter Safe Mode? Are you getting a brief blue screen before the computer restarts?

A possible solution (if you can't get into Safe Mode to further diagnose the issue) is to repair the Windows installation with a Windows XP Home CD. If you know someone with such a disk you can use that with the product key that should be on a sticker on the back of your computer. Otherwise, HP should be able to send you an XP CD since you have an authorized copy of Windows on your computer.

Lap top turns on, however Windows will not start. It keeps going the the "We apologize for the inconvenience,..." choose how you want to restart.


Hi Lisa,
Somehow you have activated the startup sequence request in the msconfig utility. Start up your laptop, press F8 till you come to the boot sequence options menu, select Safe Mode, hit ENTER wait, then when in safe mode, a warning wndow appears just informing you that you have started in Safe Mode ... bla bla bla... Click OK. Then press start button, go to Run.. and in the dialogue box type msconfig and hit ENTER. In the msconfig utility window check on the dot next to Normal Startup - Loda all device drivers & services. Click apply & Ok then Restart your unit. I think this should solve your problem.
