The missing or cannot find hal.dll, \windows\system32\hal.dll, or \winnt\system32\hal.dll error message may be experienced on a Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows XP system when the boot.ini becomes corrupted or when a user is attempting to dual boot a computer. As a first aproach have you tried the safe boot (using F8) to start up your computer?

Following files missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system


Well this means one of important files needed to start Windows is corrupted (it's a registry file).
I'd recommend repairing Windows installation. If you have Windows XP and also the Original Windows CD follow: this guide.

You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt. <windows root>\system32\hal.dll.


This is a posible solution, boot your windows in safe mode with command prompt (by pressing 'f8' as the windows splash screen appears a menu will by prompted with this option), enter this:

C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

in the command prompt and follow the instructions to restore the system.

If this doesn't work the problem may be a faulty hard disk, contact again if your problem persists.

Laptop won't start up in Windows due to a missing or corrupt file


No all you have to do is follow its instructions and use the Windows XP cd and during startup boot to the cd and during installation choose the repair option.

This will not make you lose any files and then you will be able to get in and back to work or whatever it is for again.

Assuming that you are using Windows XP, the easiest solution would be to boot from your XP cd and do a system repair. Please let me know if you need more info on how to do this.
