Yes, if you do run the recovery disk, it will reinstall windows and the bundled software package, thus removing all of your personal data on the computer. I would highly recommend picking up an external notebook hard drive enclosure, so that you can remove the hard drive from the laptop, and plug it via usb in another computer, so that you may begin the backup process. Unfortunately with those kinds of error messages that you get, the only real cure is to reinstall the entire OS (provided that your hard drive is also intact, it may not be a half bad idea, to try and run SeaTools for Windows (or DOS) on your laptop's hard drive to make sure it's not failing).

There are few different ways that the "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error may present itself, with the first listing being the most common
Use the following links
Note: if the repair is not successful then you would have to redo the entire OS. This would mean data loss on the computer.
Thanks for using Fixya

HAL.DLL stands for Hardware Abstraction Layer.
It is a Dynamic Link Library that connects to Kernal and Hence your Harware can talk to the software.
The File is available in the installer Disk with some similar name as Hal_ or Hall_.
But Honestly saying, try a safe mode to get to the desktop. Recover as max data possible from your desktop amd documents or my documents to a simple folder saved on a thumbdrive.
Repair the OS.
and check for the stability for say a week. if everything comes back to normal. Its good. else contact me .
