Compaq pc recovery problem

I ran pc recovery and it appeared to work except when I re-booted I received a message telling me that "hal.dll" was missing. If hal.dll is important to the system, it should have been in the recovery. Any ideas?

Hi,
hal.dll is a dynamic-link-library.
Not necessarilly a part of your operating system.
could be a printer or other peripheral device driver.
try re-installing all of your other hardware device drivers.

Unable bootup & error prompt that HAL.dll file missing or corrupt


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.
Resolution
  1. Restart the PC. The hal.dll error could be a fluke.

  2. Check for proper boot order in BIOS. You might see the hal.dll error if the boot order in BIOS is first looking at a hard drive other than your main hard drive.

    Note: If you've recently changed your boot order or recently flashed your BIOS, this may be what's causing your problem.

  3. Run Windows XP System Restore from a command prompt. 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.

  4. Repair or replace the boot.ini file. 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.

Recovery cd here is what show up when i turn on


You did not mention what is the manufacturer and what is the operating system you have but you can try following:

hal.dll is the file which protects your hardware devices to access the memory directly. HAL ( Harware Abstraction Layer).

To repair hal.dll we would require the recovery discs else you can try recovery console in your computer

1. press the power button and keep tapping on F 11 for HP computer and ctrl+F11 for Dell computer
2. check if you get a Recovery Manager
3. you can perform a recovery from here

How to fix samsung nc10 hal.dll problem


Windows 2000 and XP have a recovery console. You manually restore the hall.dll. Here is the exact procedure:
1. Insert the Windows CD and start the computer
2. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R
3. Type a number corresponding to the Windows installation you wish to repair (usually 1) and press Enter
4. When prompted, type the administrator password and press Enter.
5. Enter the following (assuming the you O.S. is installed on partition C:):
ATTRIB -H -R -S C:\BOOT.INI
DEL C:\BOOT.INI
BOOTCFG /REBUILD FIXBOOT

6. Exit the console, remove the disc and restart your computer.

Or you can always reinstall the operating system.
After that you could make a recovery image and use the image to reinstall. Here is a link:http://www.fixya.com/support/r4213055-quickly_reinstall_operating_system .

The file <windows root>\system32\hal.dll.


Restart the PC. The hal.dll error could be a fluke.
Check for proper boot order in BIOS. You might see the hal.dll error if the boot order in BIOS is first looking at a hard drive other than your main hard drive.
Note: If you've recently changed your boot order or recently flashed your BIOS, this may be what's causing your problem.
Run Windows XP System Restore from a command prompt. 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.
Repair or replace the boot.ini file. 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.
Write a new partition boot sector to the Windows XP system partition. If the partition boot sector has become corrupt or isn't properly configured, you may receive the hal.dll error.
Recover data from any bad sectors on your hard drive. If 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.
Restore the hal.dll file from the Windows XP CD. If the hal.dll file is truly the cause of the problem, restoring it from the original Windows XP CD may do the trick.
Perform a repair installation of Windows XP. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.
Perform a clean installation of Windows XP. This type of installation will completely remove Windows XP from your PC and install it again from scratch.
Note: While this will almost certainly resolve any hal.dll errors, it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

Will not boot


either order yourself some recovery CD's or find an xp cd and perform the installation. you're better off with the second solution so that all that bloatware (extra ridiculous software) is not installed.
