<Windows>\system32\hal.dll. I have attempted to reinstall the entire system from the cd that came with the computer but still receive this message.I have no idea how to install this file if I cannot get the computer to start.I am sure I can download a copy from microsoft onto a disc but how can I get it onto the hard drive? Any help would be so very appreciated...
this is a 5 year old gateway laptop
Also I have tried to boot from the cd but get no option to do so...I read a post in this forum about changing the boot order in bios set-up I have cd/dvd rom selected ahead of hard drive as indicated in the forum post I read.
