I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The hard drive (boot drive) is bad or its contents are corrupted. With no discs, you might want to take it to a friend or to a repair shop to have it repaired

Any help / ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

A:<Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe is missing

Check the keyboard and make sure it is good on another computer. PS/2 is more reliable than USB.

If the keyboard works on another computer, and you cannot get the keystrokes recognized to even boot to BIOS, you have a hardware problem.

I'd be looking at Power Supply first.

Post the specs of your PSU, Make, model, output.

You can create your own Recovery Console disk with this file:http://www.thecomputerparamedic.com/files/rc.isoYou must burn this file to a CD as an ISO. Post back if you need more information on how to do this.Insert the CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.Type: bootcfg /rebuildIt's important to have a space before the "/".To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.Info on the bootcfg command: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291980

"The system seems to have managed to memorize the data on the disc, so now even without the OS disc, it can go into system recovery on its own if I press F11."

It hasn't "memorised" what was on the CD. There is probably a hidden factory recovery partition on the hard drive which is accessed when you press F11 during the boot process. The recovery CD isn't needed for that. Still, I don't know why it doesn't actually work.

You could borrow a CD of the same XP level on the understanding you only need it for repair purposes, and buy a USB powered CD ROM - they don't cost much and you will save a professional repair cost.

Does this also happen if you try to log in using Safe Mode? If you can get in, or borrow a CD, try Checkdisk first. At the Command Prompt, type chkdsk /r (including the space) and press Enter, then let the five stage process run through.

Hello-

I am using Windows XP Professional. On initial bootup process, I get a black screen with the error message:

"Windows could not restart because the following file is missing or corrupt:

<windows root>\system 32\ntoskrnl.exe.

Please re-install a copy of the above file."

The mouse and keyboard are not working. I can do nothing except restart by pressing the power button on the tower. I put the XP disk in to try and reinstall, and the desktop came up. However,it would not run the disk and, again, the mouse and keyboard were not working. The mouse pointer is stuck in the center of the screen. They are both properly connected. Can anything else be done to fix this? Like I said, the mouse and keyboard are apparently disabled, and the disk will not automatically run when I put it in. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
 

A:missing or corrupt <windows root>\system 32\ntoskrnl.exe.

Sounds like it could be a hardware problem.

The easiest thing for you to do would be to download Knoppix and boot into that. if you can get it to start, and it comes up and your keyboard/mouse work, then a hardware motherboard problem is eliminated. Further, Knoppix should detect and mount your hard drive; if it fails to do so that gives substantial weight to the possibility that you have a failed HD. If it does detect and mount it (it will mount it read only) then there are a plethora of tools on Knoppix that will enable you to diagnose and repair whatever is wrong with the partition table or file system.

Go here to get knoppix.

I'm trying to fix my friends Dell the has the "<windows root>\system32\hal.dll is missing or corrupt. Please reinstall it." problem. I already hooked his HD up as a slave on one of my computers and pulled all his files. While doing that I tried replacing it manually. Nothing. I tried doing a repair to the OS, and I hit another wall. "Please enter Administrator Password"? What is this, does anyone know? Is there a Dell protection on doing this? I'm guessing reformatting will have the same problem. Anyone know how to bypass this?

A:<windows root>\system32\hal.dll is missing or corrupt. Please reinstall it.

There are two versions of the Hal.dll. One is for normal use and the other is for APCI (power saver mode). When installing the OS only one of the version is installed. It looks at the BIOS setting for power managment.

He may have changed that setting in his BIOS and it is now looking for the other version of the file. Have him change that setting in BIOS back and the file on the HD should be good to good.

If that dont work then the file is corupted or missing.

Its true from the error message that the Hardware Abstraction Layer (hal.dll) file is missing or corrupt. Reasons can be quite complicated to explain but I suggest five (5) ways out and I advice try them carefully as they are stated.

Method 1:
Does ur PC provide an option for emergency recovery from the recovery partition upon start-up? If it does, u can follow the option to launch the program that you can use 2 revive ur PC. My Compaq nx6310 notebook has a recovery partition too and gives me ...

Press F11 for emergency recovery

... and I've used it for a similar PC revival.

I believe the emergency recovery option uses the recovery partition 2 work. Again, read and consider the options carefully before progressing to avoid loosing ur documents in the long run.

The next 3 other ways to resolve this issue relies on u getting a Windows XP Home Edition CD and then booting ur PC from the CD up till the stage of the Recovery Console. On the page where it says 'Welcome to Setup', you press letter R to enter Recovery Console.

In the recovery console, type the number corresponding to ur windows installation and press enter key. At this stage, u may now try the following steps if Method 1 is not successful.

Method 2: This will try to scan ur disks. It has most often times worked.

Chkdsk /P /R
exit

Method 3: If Methos 2 fails, enter the following commands one after the other in recovery console. They will try to rebuild the boot configuration manager. The last command (exit) will restart ur PC to take effect.

Attrib &#8211;h|-s|-r C:/boot.ini
Del C:/boot.ini
bootcfg /rebuild
fixboot
exit

Method 4: If method 3 fails, enter Recovery Console again and type the following commands. U may replace cddrive with the drive letter of ur CD too.

Expand cddrive:/i386/hal.dl_ C:/windows/system32/hal.dll
exit

Method 5: If the first 4 methods fail, I advice u either Repair ur Operating system or consider a total reinstallation of it.

I know this has been dealt with before in other threads but nothing seems to work for me...

i can't boot up another computer I am getting following error...missing or corrupt file....<windows root>\system32\hal.dll. I have tried booting from my xp pro disk and even going into last known config or safe mode...won't boot up and i keep coming back to that error. Even after going into recovery mode and it finds xp on a list...the only option I am given is re-install xp after re-formatting. I don't want to lose all of my data.

If I could just get it booted in safe mode...couldn't I plug in my external hard drive and copy all of my files? Then I could reformat the hard drive.

Can someone here help? Please, in simple english. I often get lost trying to understand the directions given, thanks :)

A:missing or corrupt file....<windows root>\system32\hal.dll? HELP!!!

Did you try booting the xp disk and running a repair, that should repair you Operating System files and replace any corrupt ones. You'll see the repair option when you boot the disk and as soon as the blue setup screen on the bottom it will ask you to press a function key (f2 i think but cant quite remember) or as you continue the setup it should detect the windows xp and ask if you want to repair it or continue the install.

Hope this helps

I'm getting this error message every time I start up my computer and it's stopping me from getting into Windows. Does anyone know how I can fix it? I've run CHKDSK /R 3 times and it hasn't helped.
 

A:The following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows Root>\System32\hal.dll

There may be an occasion when you boot up your PC that you receive an error message such as HAL.DLL file is corrupt or missing. In many cases this can simply be a misconfiguration in the Boot.Ini file and can easily be corrected by instigating a suitable repair.

1/ Place your Windows XP CD into your CD-ROM and Reboot your PC

2/ XP's setup program will automatically start and files will be loaded to memory

3/When you reach the Welcome to Setup screen choose the Repair option by pressing R

4/ This will start the Recovery console and the list of Windows installations will appear

5/ As you only have one installation on your PC you need to press the number which is relevant to your installations location. This, obviously will typically be 1

6/ Type in your Administrator password. If you are using Windows XP Home edition the administrator password is blank by default so simply press Enter

7/Now type bootcfg/list

8/ A list will now appear of all the entries in your boot.ini file

9/ Next type bootcfg/rebuild

10/ Your boot.ini file should now be repaired

11/ Finally remove your XP CD from the CD-ROM and then type Exit

12/ Reboot your machine to see if the the problem has been cured

I turn on the computer I get the initial display and then then the missing or corrupt: system32\hal.dll

I have made the attempt to reinstall WinXP Sp2 but the failure reoccurs.
I hit F8 and no matter what I select the "missing or corrupt: system32\hal.dll" returns.

Just prior to this the system halted with a couple of blue screens so, being that it been around for some time I decided I would just reload WinXP SP2 and initially all seemed to be going fine however it halted indicating inf's were missing.
Well i made an effort to skip them, as I felt I should be able to load them from another computers system32 folder and that never happened as it completed halted and then began displaying the missing or corrupted hal.dll and I cannot get passed this.

Don't know what else to try.

Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:I cannot get past [missing or corrupt:<Windows root>system32\hal.dll

What I would do is first try to get your computer to boot again.

I would do this by rebuilding the boot information.

To do this go into the repair console and type.
(to get into the repair console boot your XP disk then type r to repair)

Hi,
I have a Compaq Presario Machine with XP SP2. One day it would not turn on and gave me a "ntldr missing" so I googled the problem and followed the suggestion to use the recovery disk and copy the ntldr files, I did that. Upon restart, I now have the "<windows root>\system32\hal.dll is missing or corrupt" and I am not able to start in safe mode.

I hope someone here has any good suggestions, I really need to recover the files and I hope that I do not have to resort to reinstalling windows.

A:root>\system32\hal.dll missing or corrupt

Ok, this is what I've done so far...

I tried unplugging one of my 2 drives that are in the RAID configuration - I restarted and still got the same error message. So I unplugged that drive and plugged the other one back in.

This time I got a mesage when it restarted saying that -

Problem detected with Array 1.
A disk member of a mirrored array has failed or is not responding. The array is still functional, but fault tollerance is disabled...........

After this Windows does load properly, although is running very slowly. I am assuming that i am now running Windows off the other drive that was previously mirroring the other one.

Is it now simply a matter of replacing the other drive? how can I tell if it is faulty?

Thanks

Then we get error msg for 'ntoskrnl.exe' missing or currupt. I tried using the copy cammand but somehow the system shuts down automatically on the repair console before i can type the entire command and execute it.

Hello everyone I have a problem I have an iMac which has a Macinstosh OS and a Windows XP OS Recently my windows stopped working It started normally until the loading screen and then the iMac just restarted I decided not to think about it too much and just reinstall Windows I used Boot camp after missing" or partition. formatting is root>/System32/hal.dll corrupt "<Windows to start from cd "<Windows root>/System32/hal.dll is corrupt or missing" after formatting partition. deleted old windows partition created a new "<Windows root>/System32/hal.dll is corrupt or missing" after formatting partition. partition formated it the computer restarts and boom quot lt Windows root gt System hal dll is corrupt or missing quot I cannot proceed any further An install windows setup is supposed to appear but instead I get this I went to microsoft com for help but needless to say their support sucks I searched the internet but to no avail What I have tried this far is opened windows recovery from CD and fixmbr chkdsk r bootcfg rebuild none of which worked What I completely don't understand is what am I even fixing I formated the Windows partition why is there an error about a missing windows file I deleted the entire OS of course it's missing I just want to clean install windows can someone help me with that Thanks

A:"<Windows root>/System32/hal.dll is corrupt or missing" after formatting partition.

I have the exact same problem except a Mac Pro, and I didn't use boot camp, I used the windows installation/boot disk to install windows after I had deleted everything on the partition that used to have windows.

Some one must know what to do. I am simply trying to install windows again after it had gotten a virus or been corrupted some other way.

I have gone to the recovery and tried bootcfg /rebuild and it just created two places I could start windows from. Even though they were named exactly the same.

And everytime as soon as I try to start in to windows I get THIS:


Windows could not start because the following file is missing
or corrupt:
<Windows root>system32\hal.dll.
Please re-install a copy of the above file.


No files should be missing because I just installed windows. And then deleted it and tried again and the same thing happened. So I figure either something is wrong with my XP disc. Or something is wrong with my hard drive in some way. Maybe simply with the partition. But I don't know, or know what to do if I did know what the problem was. So please HELP me fix it! Or I can't play PC games.

A:System32\NTOSKRNL.EXE is missing or corrupt

If you just need the files then take out the hard drive and put it into another PC or put it into an external enclosure and connect it to another PC. You can also boot with a boot disc like Symantec Ghost, Linux Live or a BartPE cd and get the files that way.

This is assuming the drive is still working properly.

Can you explain in a little more detail about the issues with the recovery disc and keyboard? Also, be aware that using a recovery disc will generally delete all of the date off the drive before doing the recovery.

But I have not even been given the chance to enter a file name in the repair console. Somebody help me, I am lost now.

There are any number of causes of the problem including system hardware.

You can rule out most physical hardware issues (other than the drive itself) by booting to something like Puppy Linux or Ultmate Bootdisk.

Hi

sounds like you have screwed the motherboard whilst moving it,. or you have short somewhere, remove the motherboard and check that none of the metal support posts are touching the board anywhere.

Floppy disk fail, you have the cable plugged in the wrong way either in the mobo or in the floppy drive.

NTOSKRNL>EXE missing is a messed up OS and may require a reinstall of the OS, however do a google on the term and there are several thousand pages on the subject.

Something similar happened to me last week. Windows Vista woudn't boot (totally blank screen). Unplug it, plug it back in, reboot, bluescreen comes up with an "Unrecoverable Hardware Error". Unplug, plug again, reboot, boot, login, half an hour later same bluescreen.

It turns out I had a failing hard drive. I ran every possible test before I replaced it except for ones that used the HD and they all passed. I replaced it, works fine now.

Another symptom of a failing HD are files randomly going missing or corrupt. I'm not entirely sure this is your problem though, considering you managed to boot and run a few sweeps, however if you do have a failing hard drive the best thing to do is to not use it to prevent further damage. Google "Ubuntu Recovery Remix" for more information.

On another note, one other obvious problem I see is the registry cleaner. I suggest you read the announcement about them here.


EDIT: I Googled the file. The first result that came up might help you, but be careful. A few days ago I had someone try to repair the boot.ini file and somehow he screwed up and now there's six copies laying around his HD for no reason. He can boot now, but still..

Getting this message on my laptop, it wants me to "re-install" a copy of this file in order to access my laptop. Can't get anything but a "blue" screen. Was told by a relative to "google" search a copy of this file, (on my other working computer), download it to a cd and then load that cd into my laptop and all should run fine. What should I do? Thanks

If you get an error that NTOSKRNL not found:

Insert and boot from your WindowsXP CD.
At the first R=Repair option, press the R key
Press the number that corresponds to the correct location for the installation of Windows you want to repair.
Typically this will be #1
Change to the drive that has the CD ROM.
CD i386
expand ntkrnlmp.ex_ C:\Windows\System32\ntoskrnl.exe
If WindowsXP is installed in a different location, just make the necessary change to C:\Windows
Take out the CD ROM and type exit

You put in the Windows XP CD/DVD (if you're lucky, you'll have one) and boot from it. At the second R option, press R. Follow instructions. If you do it right, it won't erase anything. Disclaimer: I do not accept any responsibility for anything that may happen. Use the info at your own risk!

If the XP Recovery Console is already installed...try hitting the F11 key at boot. If you can access the RC, I suggest trying the chkdsk /r command first.

If both your systems are desktops, take the hard drive out of the bad one and hook it up as a secondary drive in your good one. This way you can get access to your files. Otherwise you can buy a device which plugs up laptop or desktop hard drives to your system USB port to access files. They are not expensive. www.newegg.com

Hi there,

I would really appreciate some help. First, before someone says it, I have searched for this error, however, as there is no cd rom in the laptop I can't follow the instructions to fix, so I'm stumped!

My brother has a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 with XP. He is receiving the above error message on boot up. The fix appears to be to use the recovery cd? Like I say there's no cd drive on this laptop so I'm clueless as to how to fix it.

Can someone please help? Is there another way to get the system to boot?

Also is there a way to get chkdsk to run without the cd? A couple of forums said that this sometimes fixes the problem but again can't run cheksk unless I can boot the laptop.

Also does anyone know what causes this problem?

Relevancy 87.72%

Is there any way to fix this problem without having cd
 

A:Missing <windows root>\system32\hal.dll.

Depends on what's causing it. If it's caused by a missing boot loader file or a corrupt MBR, you can boot with a substitute media that has the 3 necessary files for booting and it will allow access to the system for possibly making repairs. The boot media will need to be formatted on a ntfs system and contain the three files ntldr, ntdetect.com and boot.ini. I can offer a link for creating such media if you need it.

Otherwise, if the error is caused by some major error in the system files beyond the bootloader area, then you may need the install CD. It could be that the hal.dll file is missing but that's not usually the case.

That is not to say you couldn't get an iso file from the internet and make a Recovery Console boot CD which would allow you to boot to the RC and make repairs but that would depend on your abilities and if you knew where to make such repairs.

BTW, if you are getting that message when using the boot media I offered in the other post of your other thread ( http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/976050-pc-doctor-needed-2.html#post7778423 ), that's a common message when you choose the wrong partition from the initial menu it presents. In your case, you should be choosing the 1st partition of the 1st hard drive. (I think) If you get the message from all choices, then you have a system problem that will require an install CD or RC boot CD as I stated earlier.

If this is the same computer and same problem, you should keep it all in the original thread, lest you lose track of who said what and perhaps lose the interest of your helpers.

How old is your HD. The "hal" message is usually an indication that the computer is having difficulty reading the boot HD. This can be because you have recently been installing other dual OS's, for example, or a dying HD.

Bought as a demo unit from BB 2 years ago...No recovery discs, and no Windows disc

Have tried all of the <F10> features. Nothing will allow it to boot.

I just purchased an Extrenal HDD adapter to allow me to scan the laptop's drive through this PC. This PC isrunning XP Pro, and I can get into the laptop drive.

I looked at the laptop's Windows folder to findthe System32 folder so that I could copy the good file from this PC, but there is no System32 folder.

Can someone steer me in the right direction here? I am hoping it will be as easy as copying the good file from this PC to the laptop HDD and rebooting....

Try tapping on F11 (instead of F10) when HP logo appears. If that does not help, you would need an XP Pro install CD to fix. If you want to copy from a PC, make sure folder options is set to SHOW hidden folders (AFAIK by default the System32 is a hidden folder).

A:<windows root>\system 32\ntoskrnl.exe is missing

Hi heyduke1


It's highly unlikely that CCleaner had anything to do with it. I've used CCleaner in my repair business for six or seven years now, and I've never had any problems with it. CCleaner does not remove kernel files.

Much more likely, you have either a malware infection (or the results of a malware infection that has been partially cleaned), or a hardware misconfiguration or failure.

At the very least, it's possible that your XP boot files have been compromised.

If you don't have backups of valuable data on the hard drive -- if you or a friend has a bootable Live CD, boot your PC with that, and make backups of your data onto removable media. (LiveCDs that can do this: Knoppix, UBCD, UBCD4Win, Ubuntu ... there are many others). Or pull the hard drive & use another computer to save the files. Scan the files for malware, too, to keep from infecting the helper PC or from re-infecting your system when the files are later restored.

Here's Microsoft's Troubleshooter for your repair --- if you're lucky, a run of bootcfg in the Recovery Console might fix things (but read the whole article and see what repair seems best for your situation) --- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314477

Hi Justin,
Do you have an XP installation disc? If so, insert the disc and boot up from it. (You will need to change your boot order in BIOS to do this.) After Windows setup runs, press R to enter the Recovery Console and press the number option for your installation of Windows. This is usually option 1. At the DOS prompt, change to your windows/system32 directory and type expand X:/i386/ntoskrnl.ex_ (where X is the drive letter for your CD drive) and press return. When the file is copied, reboot and change the boot order back to floppy as first boot device, then save the change and reboot. Let me know how you get on.

The fix for the hal.dll issue is this.
Make sure that you habe the BIOS set to boot from CD first.

Then type the following hitting ENTER after each line

Hello and Welcome to TSF

Your going to need a XP cd in order to fix this issue. Can you borrow a friends?

If you get an error regarding a missing or corrupt hal.dll file, it might simply be the BOOT.INI file on the root of the C: drive that is misconfigured.

Here's what to do:

1. Insert and boot from your Windows XP CD.
2. At the first R=Repair option, press the R key
3. Press the number that corresponds to the correct location for the installation of Windows you want to repair.
4. Typically this will be #1
5. Type bootcfg /list to show the current entries in the BOOT.INI file
6. Type bootcfg /rebuild to repair it
7. Take out the CD ROM and type exit

Please help! I have not found any instructions that have helped me so far. I am receiving this error msg when I turn my computer on: "Windows 2000 could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <windows 2000 root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe. Please re-install a copy of the above file."

Please point me in the right direction to fix this. I tried using my Windows 2K disc 1 CD, tried starting in safe (and other) modes- nothing has worked.

I am using Windows 2000 Professional.
 

A:Win 2K root\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

I have a tip for fixing it with XP and the Recover Console. The steps are pretty much the same for Windows2000.

I have a HP...I am missing the file <windows root>\system32\hal.dll.. I have been told that I can reinstall my whole windows operating system with a bootdisk and replace any damaged or corrupt files with this. I went to a friend and they gave me a bootdisk for Windows ME. My computer is (was) operating on XP. I can put my floppy in and I get an A: prompt. I dont know where to go from there. Will this even work anyway? I cannot access anything on my computer. Nothing will start. I am suspecting a virus....please help!!!

My Toshiba s5200 701 crashed today.

Windows shows this error:

+windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: windows root system32/hal.dll+
+please re install it.+

First, this Toshiba is an European model and I am living in the USA.
Second, the model is old.
Third, I do not have the XP CD to reinstal the operating system.

I do not know if it is worthy to purchase a new XP Professional for this computer.

Any ideas, suggestions. Please advise.

A:Satellite 5200-701 windows root system32/hal.dll missing

Hi

I read about such issues?
You will need to reinstall the OS but it could be also possible that this error is related to faulty HDD and/or RAM.
Many uses got this error again after new OS installation and in different cases the RAM or HDD was affected as well.

What to say; it?s your decision what you want to do... I would recommend reinstalling the Win XP once again in order to check if this issue is related only to missing hal.dll in system32 folder.
At the other hand the Win XP licence is not expensive because Win 7 is on the market and nobody want to use "old" OS which will be discontinued in the next couple of years...

And that just for starters! I am trying to get back up and running. It would bootup to loading drivers in normal and safe mode then would "blue screen". After several attempts I have managed to stop the "Blue screen". I Then got, can not start XP, (<Widows Root> \system 32\hal.dll missing or corrupt). After going to MS and trying there fix, I now get an error message about (\min int\system32\config\system) being the cause of not booting.

This a Dell Computer, Windows XP Pro, Raid, I can get it into the norton system restore program but it does not give me the option of just restoring the O/S It is a destructive recovery only. That is a Last resort option. Any help would be great! I have an Original Dell XP Pro sp2 CD.

Okay, I have looked around to try and find a topic that fit my situation, but I didn't really find anthing that helped me...

I have access to another computer, but on the computer that is getting that error message I do not have the XP disk to boot from or anything to actually get Windows to come up.

So I believe all I need to do is reinstall that file correct? If so...where can I find it, and how do I get the computer to bring up Windows so that I CAN reinstall it?

Any help would be appreciated!! Please help me out..

Put in the XP CD. Choose R for repair.

At the DOS prompt try Fixmbr and Fixboot commands.

hi,,.,.

when i come to boot up i get the message
my windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
<windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe.
please re-install a copy of the above file

i have tried to put my xp bootable disc, but keyboard is not working,,
i tried many keyboards but its not working

plz plz plz plz plz help me how i repair windows without my keyboard
or
tell me another solution,.,.,.(try to understand my problem, my english is not so good,.,)

A:<window root>/system32/ntoskrnl.exe

I would say try a Last Known Good Configuration, but since your keyboard doesn't work, I don't believe you will be able to get to that menu.

Although, maybe it works before Windows actually loads.

On startup, continuously tap F8 until it brings you to a menu, from that menu, please choose Last Known Good Configuration. See if that helps.

Also, here is a pretty explanation of the problem and some solutions to it. See if any help . .

This morning upon trying to boot up my computer I was greeted with an error message stating the system 32 file hal.dll was damaged or missing and windows could not start. I have the same error even if I try to boot in safe mode.

I'm able to get the computer to boot up if I choose "last know good configuration" but whenever I turn it on again I still get the same problem. Last night I did install some updates from windows so my best guess if something went wrong with those.

I'd appreciate some help in fixing this issue. I have Windows XP CD that came with the computer but I would really prefer to repair the problem rather than reinstalling entirely and having to reinstall everything.

Here is some information on my computer:
Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 3 (2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.120504-1619)
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6600 @ 2.40GHz (2 CPUs)
Memory: 2046MB RAM

A:Computer can't boot up-<windows root>\system32\hal.dll damaged or missing

If you read this -> How to start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature in Windows XP that should have 'fixed' most problems related to startup (if it works).

So, something is amiss.

How about a System Restore to sometime a week ago or so?

Hello Everyone!

I am trying to recover an IMB t23 notebook computer. This notebook comes with the recovery data preloaded in the computer. After starting the computer, I am to press F11 to start the recovery process. Everything goes fine until the Windows 2000 Pro OS is supposed to be installed. Then, I get a message that says: missing or corrupt <windows 2000 root>system32ntoskrnl.exe

The recovery processs gets stuck here. I restarted the computer and pressed F11 several times and each time, I get stuck at this step.

I don't have an IMB recovery cd so does anyone know whether there is anything I can download from the internet that could resolve this problem?

Thank you very much in advance!!

A:Missing or Corrupt ntoskrnl.exe AND Windows XP cd will not boot

if your cd rom is set to boot in your bios, and it tries to access the disk and you hear clicking noises, your cd rom drive may be bad. depending on what brand of computer it is, most of them have a boot option right when you turn on the computer, it normally states "press F11 / F12" for boot menu
