Hi, I have an HP Pavilion 3650 with Windows XP. Everytime I tried to turn it on the following message appeared. "Windows cannot be started because the following file is missing or corrupt <windows root>system 32\hal.dll". I'm not sure what's wrong or what's missing, but any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Your error message is a corrupt file within your Operating System. You can try to copy the file to your hard drive or you can try to do a system restore if you have your XP cd.

I don't have a system restore disk, but if I were to copy the file to my hard drive, would I have to save the file onto a hard disk?

Hey, I am having the same problem...
Windows cannot be started because the following file is missing or corrupt <windows root>system 32\hal.dll
I'm using Windows XP, I have a custom built computer and I haven't added/removed/changed any hardware or software since last month(June), when I updated my video card.  I dont have a system restore disk, but I have an external hard drive(iPod), would it be possible for me to get that hal file and stick it on my iPod, then get the computer to boot from my iPod? Can it work that way?

Hey, I have the same problem. When I start up my computer the following message appears: windows root>\system 32\hal.dll this file may be corrupted or removed. So I tried restoring it but it crashes all the time during these restore sessions. I get about 10 seconds after I press the 'start up' button before it crashes, which obviously isn't enough time for me to restore my computer with the Emachine XP cd I have. So what should I do because it seems as if there is no solution to this problem? Could some one plz help me with my problem as soon as possible thanks Smiley

For all of you: http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_haldll_missing.htm
Also: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;320252
Also for a lot of more links: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/WinXP/Q_21091291.html

Now then, onto the repair, for you who do have the Windows XP CD, use the Recovery Console as said in the first link above. Alternatively use the Repair Installation of Windows, although do watch out as this will rid you of all hotfixes and service packs. So make sure you have those backed up to run directly after the reinstall!!

For you with only a Restore CD, use the correct start up floppies for your XP version. Anyone in here who wasn't using Windows XP? Since no one mentioned their OS. Wink
