You should have a sticker on your PC that states your product key. These product keys may not match the CD you have for Windows.
That's Okay though. You can go to install Windows in the usual manner and when you get to the point where the software states "A Windows Installation Already Exists" you will see a choice to do a Repair. Choose the repair option and you'll be fine.
If you have already done a full install and reached the point where the key is rejected, you should see an 800 number to telephone. Go ahead and phone them. Tell them the truth and they will give you what is called a "B" Key, b as in backup. I've had to do this for HP, IBM, Gateway and Dell owners who've lost or didn't have a CD. Microsoft gets this problem ALL THE TIME. So don't hesitate to call them.
If, however, you haven't done anything at all you can use the System File Checker and have this CD in your CD Drive. System File Checker looks for missing and invalid files and replaces them, using the CDROM as the source. The SFC doesn't care if you own the CD or not. But, if you get an error message about the CD being wrong, you are infected with a root kit virus. Nothing short of a DoD disk wipe and reinstall will help you.
You'll need to telephone (800) 426-9400; M-F, 6 AM - 5:30 PM Pacific time
And let them help you out.

I am going to start with the assumption you have already tried to reboot, then next choices from there go kinda like this...
Run windows XP restore from command prompt. (From
safe ,mode type C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and press Enter. 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.
Replace the boot.ini file (run msconfig) 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.
Right click on c: drive, click
on properties, then tools, click on the error checking button, the put a
checkmark in each box, Click start and it may say it needs to run on next
reboot click OK the reboot. 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.
Run a repair install of the operating system. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.
