blank screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • when i start my computer, after it loads its starting screen (where you can enter bios) it goes blank and does nothing

    when i put boot disk in the floppy drive it says missing hal.dll and asking me to reinstall the file
    but the problem is i don't know how to reinstall the file cause it can't enter windows, and id doesnt have dos

    later on i somehow managed to enter windows
    there i changed boot.ini from
    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Windows XP home" /fastdetect

    to

    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP" /fastdetect

    and rebooted
    but after that when the loading screen (bios) passes it shows me the message of missing hal.dll without even having the boot disk in the drive

    tnx for your help
