We all know the problem at the boot when it says "Windows root corrupt balbalbla yeyeye replace corrupt or deleted Hal.dll file in windows root" etc...
4 days ago, this problem emerged from my PC unexpectedly.
First thing I did is that I replaced the actual file using the recovery console. It did not work of course.
Then I did chkdsk C: /r which took 2 hours to do. No effect.
Then I fixed the boot.ini by typing the following commands: bootcfg /rebuild etc.... It did work (after I rebuilt the boot file of my computer, it started normally) but only temporarily:
every time I shut down my 3 years old computer, it does not shut down correctly; the CPU is turned on with a black screen on the monitor so I shut it down by pressing the holy button.
When I start my computer again, the main problem reappears: the hall.dll [bleep].
So every boot, I always do the bootcfg /rebuild command which takes around 20 minutes to be completed. It was annoying but at least my computer is still usable.
So I used the time machine (system restore) reverting my computer's original state 1 week ago. After the restore, my computer booted. The hall problem seemed to dissapear but a new enemy emerged:
the Windows Xp page, where there is a loading bar, freezes EVERY TIME I reboot.
So I was stuck with this unknown problem. Surprisingly (and fortunately) safe mode works. I booted my pc from safe mode and went back to the present time (I undid system restore).
I am once again faced with hal.dll [bleep] and I do not know how to fix this.
Anyone have any idea how to fix this?
Thank you in advance.
