If you have the original install media that came w/ the computer boot off the main instal cd and follow the prompts to wipe the hard drive and start fresh. If not then you will have to purchase at the least a version of windows of the flavour of your choice or install linux for free.

<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.
