Hello guys,

I have a small (maybe big problem).

My computer giving me this message when I turn it on: 'BOOT FROM CD ''windows root system32 hal.dll'' Bla bla bla. I don't have the cd, it doesn't have a floppy drive. I have tried almost everything (by the way, I running window XP).

How do I fix this problem. Tried using my USB but to no avail. Please help

Well the issue we face is the need to repair your Operating System (OS) files. Due to the age of the machine and OS, it does not natively support USB as a modern PC does. Now do you have more desktops at your location? We may be able to repair the drive by taking the drive out of the current machine and chaining it up onto another machine and manually importing and fixing the files.

What is the make and full model number of the computer? It may have a recovery partition that can be used to restore it to factory new state.
