Can anyone help me with this? First I was getting the <windows root> \system32\hal.dll. error. I found this site and followed the directions posted for it. Once I restarted my computer I now get: Windows could not restart because of an error in the software Please report this problem as: load needed DLLs for kernel. I have no idea what to do and I really need to get my computer running. I have my only part way finished master's thesis on it so I really hope there is a way to get it running again. Also the first time I tried to fix it during this part: 2. Enter Load Identifier This is the name of the operating system. When you receive this message, type the name of your operating system, and then press ENTER. I didnít put the full operating system name in which is Windows XP Media Center Edition. Now when the computer boots up I have to choose between Windows XP and Windows XP Media Center Edition. How do I fix that? Thank-you for any help you can give me. I really donít know anything about this kind of stuff. I would really appreciate the help

Hi hisser & welcome to Geeks2Go!
Your best option if you have a proper Microsoft XP MCE CD is to perform a 'repair' install which should get you up and running again without overwriting your own files in My Documents. Go here: http://www.michaelst...pairinstall.htm

If your CD is only a manufacturer's recovery disc you can't use that for a repair install. If you had been sensible enough to create backups of your work and other files you could simply re-install Windows with a recovery CD if that's all you have, overwriting everything but safe in the knowledge that your work is already backed up. Without those backups, only a repair install will preserve your files.

Thanks for the help. I'll try this. I did have some of the paper saved. I don't have an external hard drive or anything like that so what I do is e-mail the paper to me when I'm done working on each section. The problem was that the error happended while I was still working on my paper. I was actually in the middle of typing a sentence when it froze then went to the blue screen of death. When I restarted it had an error message. Do any of you know why this error happens? I never had problems like this before on other computers. My laptop is only about a year old and I have had nothing but problems with it. This isn't the first time it went bad. I talked to Dell and they said it's a program problem but they couldn't tell me what is causing the problem.
