<windows root>system32hal.dll

Post by flashthedeveloper on Fri 19 Nov 2010, 7:58 pm

First topic message reminder :

Uninstalled a piece of Samsung software from my computer last night and turned it off. Tried to log on this morning but I get the above message.

I did some research on the net to try and fix it but I am having no luck even getting past the error message notification when I install the "operating system reinstallation XP Pro service pack 2" cd from dell which came with the laptop and re-boot.

The only other cd's I have which may be useful are the Office XP Small Business one's?

Any help at all would be so valuable because I work for myself and right now is probably the busiest time of the year.

Thanks.

Oh my god, lets try one solution again. Go to Recovery Console again, same steps to get DOS screen. Type this command :

expand CD DRIVE\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32

Important : Change CD DRIVE with name of your CD/DVD Drive, E:, F: etc.. i don't know which one you have.
If computer ask you to overwrite missing file, press Y for Yes.

After that command, type next, one by one, after every command press Enter :
ATTRIB -H -R -S C:\BOOT.INI
DEL C:\BOOT.INI
BOOTCFG /REBUILD FIXBOOT

exit

It must work now!

Don't say that for yourself That's on Windows XP CD, you have to enter Setup, press R to get to Recovery Console, after that follow above steps. You have to get to same windows where you already typed chkdsk command etc.. ;)

OK, you are saying that I need to enter: expand CD DRIVE\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32 - but replace the words CD DRIVE with the letter of my CD/RW drive yes? Well that is the E: drive, so I need to write:

expand E:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32 ?

There is definitely a space between expand and E: ?

expand E:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32

Also, space between _ and c.

Hi Nazzgull,

Got annoyed with it all in the end and gave it to a professional.

Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for the advice and tips.

Thanks mate.
