Windows boot errors on my laptop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been getting this error:

    <windows root>\system32\hal.dll

    that won't let me boot my Windows XP pc.

    I found a forum that said to push the F8 key a bunch of times at the first screen to get you into the boot system.  I did that and then I went through the screens & found a diagnostic test.  I ran that and got an error #2-07 FAIL.  What does that mean and how can it be fixed?
