Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario S5100NX (DM172A#ABA) PC Desktop ?

My computer(Compaq 5301RSH 5000 SERIES) won't start because "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: system32hal.dll. Please re-install a copy of the above file." What can I do to fix it.


Answers :

Alright..Not a big problem..Generally happens due to some files corrupting. Put your Windows CD in the drive, boot form the Disc and choose to repair the operating system. The problem will be solved.

Thank you!

Let me guess, Compaq did not provide you with an original Windows installation disc? Of course not. You can call Compaq and request they send you your restore CD's if you did not get them either. Or, you can shut down your system press the power button an as it is booting press shift F10 and follow the prompts for a system restore. It may require cds, this depends on the level of corruption/destruction state the system is in. There is a reason this file is corrupt or the file system became corrupt. Hope it helps, post for additional help.

I have an ACER notebook Aspire 4920 and, I think, because an update I installed (prompted I may add by my laptop!) it is now not working. When I turn it on it goes into Startup Repair mode and then tells me it can't fix the problem automatically. It then gives me the options to either: System Restore (not actually an option as when I go on it it tells me I can't do this!), Windows Complete PC restore (which i can't do as have no Backup), Windows Memory restore, or command prompt.
