system32/hal.dll fix...question regarding XP disc RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently recieved an error message telling me that the system32 etc. file was corrupt or deleted.  I've already looked up how to fix it using the XP startup disc. But the only XP startup disc I have is one that did not come with my computer(I don't even remember my computer coming with an XP disc). It's an older disc. I was wondering, could I use this older XP disc to fix the file without damaging my computer?

    edit: the XP disc I have is Windows XP Home Edition, and my computer is running on Windows XP Media Center Edition.
