Hi, guys. First let me tell you that I do know some little about PC, but friend of mine presented me with something that I'm unable to solve. His Compaq Evo N1000c/Win XP pro laptop froze and after hard restart come back with well known "Hal.dll is missing or corrupted" message, Hi does not have installation CD so turned for help to me. Now comes the problem his CD-Rom is busted and by that definition I'm unable to expand missing file from my installation CD. I've tried to copy that file to boot floopy that I've created on my PC and copy the file to His C:\windows\system32 folder. It did not work, now the machine comes back with "Windows could not start because of an error in the software. Please report this problem as: load needed DLLs for Kernel. Please contact your support person to report this problem."
Any of you have solution for this, please?

you could try buying a USB Cd rom drive they arent that expensive and alot of recent motherboards will detect them as bootable devices.

also if your cheep and have a external harddrive lying around somewere. you can do it the ghetto way by taking a normal usb harddrive enclosure, removing the harddrive inside and plugging the cd rom from your computer into the enclosure. of course this only works if both the harddrive and cd rom use the same interface most newer enclosures are SATA now and alot of cd rom drives are still IDE. so just check to make sure you know wether or not your CD is SATA or IDE and make sure the enclosure uses the same interface.

of course this only works with the enclosures that you can take apart alot of the premade external drives are fused shut with melted plastic or glue.

unless of course your talking about the disk it'sself in which case you need to somehow get another one
