  • did you find a fix to this problem? i have the same issue

  • I just had the same thing happen after losing a hard drive and getting it replaced then downloaded updates (70 of them) of which 53 failed, asked for a restart and then got the message, does not look like anyone has a answer yet. also looks like it is from windows updates
    Friday, May 18, 2007 12:08 PM
  • I have just had this happen after trying to install a driver to synchronise my mobile to my pc, then restarting. I've tried using the recovery discs but no joy. Any thoughts or ideas?
    Sunday, May 20, 2007 11:59 AM
  • Well I fixed my computer but it required a total recovery, deleting every thing on the hard drive and starting over, not a lot of fun, the problem looks like it was caused because I missed a step or two on the original install, and when doing the updates it created this.
    Sunday, May 20, 2007 2:07 PM
  • Yeah I had an error that said Disc Error press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart. When I did this it kept saying the same message. I did a hard reset and then this error came up. This all happened overnight. The previous day I had been installing the new Windows Update software and then the next day suprise suprise, I found this on my computer screen. Any help is really appriciated!

  • Came across this website - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314477 providing solution to your problem.

    Hope this will help.

  • One day I also started my computer and received a message;  missing or corrupt <windows root>\system32\hal.dll. so i tried all sorts of things but in the end i found out that if you go in to the programs and look for the system 32 and get hal.dll up. i found out some how it had changed to captitals , so i changed it back to lower case and it worked fine after that. so i started the comp up and pressed  F8 and go in on safe mode, press start, press search, type in system 32, go in to system 32 programs and look for  hal.dll   program / folder and see if it had been changed to    HAL.DLL    , if it has change it back to by renaming it    hal.dll  

    i hope this works for people as it did for me.    oh and by the way i'm not a computer person i just got lucky i think.

  • We solved the problem as followed:

    We saved hal.dll from an other PC on an USB stick

    We put that into the PC with the problem. In the recovery console we typed after the C prompt d to go to the USB stick

    Then we typed dir to see if we could find hal.dll op the stick.

    Then we typed copy hal.dll and we were asked if we wanted to replace HAL.dll

    We typed y

    And after that we could restart the computer as normal.

    1) Go to run; type Chkdsk /f and enter; answer Y when prompted; and reboot.

    2) Go to windows; open system32 folder; open chkdsk.exe and it should recover lost,corrupted or missing files.

    3) Go to control panel; open add or remove programs; remove windows xp service pack 3; go to microsoft windows update and download service pack 3 again.

  • Hi which system model or brand are you using?

    Some brands like DELL have restore partitions through which windows can be repaired and reinstalled without using cd’s.

    Hi

    I have the Cisnet.tks

  • Hi

    Cisnet is an internet service provider and not the name of your system brand, if you are not sure then you must use Win xp disk to repair the missing file. the easies way is to download the trial version of Windows XP from http://www.softpedia.com/get/Others/Miscellaneous/Windows-XP-Embedded-with-SP2.shtml and create a bootable file and login to recovery console and repair or replace the missing files.

     

    Enjoy

  • I do not think Microsoft shall help you with this problem.I have had this on my grandson's laptop and eventually had to replace the hard disc and reformat the windows xp.That is my experience with this problem.
    I venture to say that microsoft is driving its users to opt for pirated programs by not coming forward with solutions of this program problem.Why should it occur is the first question microsoft should answer.

    Hello,

    I've been having the same problem with this error message. This has happened due to a mistake that the MS Company has made in and with regards to the SERVICE PACK 3 update. On a few occations the company tech desides to attempt to answer questions regarding this matter but the answers provided do not work for very clear reasons. I was wondering if you have had the chance to hear weather or not there will be a law suit regarding this matter. If there is please contact me ASAP. Seeing as I have had some expensive equipment destroyed as a result of this problem. Please if you wish to use this comment on the fourm please do. because I feel that all parties that have suffered damage to their equipment should bring and file suit due to this matter ASAP. The MS Company should pay for or replace all damaged equipment due to this matter.

    Hello,

    I've been having the same problem with this error message. This has happened due to a mistake that the MS Company has made in and with regards to the SERVICE PACK 3 update. On a few occations the company tech desides to attempt to answer questions regarding this matter but the answers provided do not work for very clear reasons. I was wondering if you have had the chance to hear weather or not there will be a law suit regarding this matter. If there is please contact me ASAP. Seeing as I have had some expensive equipment destroyed as a result of this problem. Please if you wish to use this comment on the fourm please do. because I feel that all parties that have suffered damage to their equipment should bring and file suit due to this matter ASAP. The MS Company should pay for or replace all damaged equipment due to this matter.

    RUN

     

    CHKDSK /F

     

    ENTER Y when prompted at reboot

  • I just found out I had the same problem on my pc.  How I found this was I was trying to do a system restore, and no matter what date I chose, it would not restore.  Someone from MS emailed and said to try to run system restore in safe mode.  While in safe mode, it gave me the option of logging into Windows XP Home Edition or regular Windows,  When I tried to log on to the XP version, I got that same dratted error message about that stupid dll file!!  Logging into regular windows, no problem and I was able to do the system restore.  Other than that, I am able to shut down the computer and restart.  I have emailed MS again (the same rep who helped with the system restore) and I will write back to tell what she says about this file

    1. Go to search

    2. Click on Search all files and folders

    3. Type in the search engine: hal.dll

    4. Drag the file that says windows system32 and drop it on a flash drive.

    5. Put it into the computer and follow the directions

     

    I'm glad to be of assistance,

     

    You are Welcome
