If the system tells you the the HAL.DLL file is corrupted or has been modified in any way, run a simple repair installed.

HAL stands for Hardware Abstract Layer. It's a blueprint of the hardware installed in your computer at the time Windows is installed. It was one of MS failed attempts at stopping people from ghosting their OS installations to other computers, but the fail part is that all you need to do is run repair install and it will create a new HAL.DLL file with a new image, negating the issue entirely.

My gateway lt 20 goes to a missing mess.about <windows root>\system32/hal.dll. immeditly on startup


Hi,

If it cannot access any of the Advanced Boot Options, you may need to reinstall a fresh copy of the Operating System. However, try to run a hard drive diagnostic software to check if your hard drive has bad sectors.

For advanced troubleshooting on how to reinstall the file (system32/hal.dll) without doing a clean install, check the link below.

Hope this helps.

Notebook says that windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt &lt;windows root&gt;/system32/hal.dll.


Causes 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.

To fix it:
1) Restart your PC, sometimes the hall.dll error could be an error itself and your PC should boot up fine.
2) Go into the BIOS by pressing the Delete key as the laptop boots. Then navigate to disk boot priority and make sure this is set to your main hard drive (the one that has Windows installed on it). Save and exit the BIOS. Sometimes if you have a USB flash drive/Pen drive or external hard drive it may automatically switch the boot priority to that.
If these two quick steps don't fix the problem then head over to here and continue reading up about repairing the boot.ini file.

On screen message telling me windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt- &lt;windows root&gt;\system32\hal.dll. Laptop does not start or boot properly


Time to get out that restore disc you made when you first got your laptop. The boot sector has errors. Boot with your rescue disc and run CHKDSK/F to clear the errors.
Hope that helps.

hi, right you need to boot up using your windows disk, change the boot order so it picks your DVD drive first, now select repair once windows starts up.

"<Winnt_root>\System32\Hal.dll missing or corrupt:


  1. Verify the boot.ini file is found on the computer by using a boot diskette or use your Windows CD to get to the MS-DOS "C:\>" prompt.
  2. From this prompt edit the boot.ini, verify that it is pointing to the correct operating system, and that no anomalies are found within the file. Below is a listing of what to verify
  • If only one operating system is on the computer verify that the boot.ini only has one operating system listed. In some situations an alternate configuration line may be added for the same operating system, leaving the improper line.
  • Verify that the "default=" line as well as the operating system line are the same and that they are pointing to the correct operating system.
Verify that the computer has the hal.dll file

From the MS-DOS "C:\>" prompt quickly determine if your computer has the "hal.dll" file by typing "dir hal.dll /s" at the prompt. If the computer returns a "File not found" message, the hal.dll has been deleted.

To recover this file boot the Windows operating system CD and choose the option to "Restore", "Repair", or "Recover." This option will prompt you for the Windows installation to use, the administrators password and will allow you to restore the proper file. At the MS-DOS prompt type the below command.

expand C:\i386\hal.dl_ D:\windows\system32\

In the above example "D" would be the letter of your CD-ROM drive and "C" the letter of the drive your operating system is installed on. For example, your disc drive may be D: and your hard drive is likely C:.
