Default corrupted HAL.dll file

Hey guys im trying to fix a computer that has Windows XP Home Edition on it. when it boots it comes to a screen that says that the HAL.dll is either missing of corrupted please install this file. Well i tried installing a know good HAL.dll file from another Windows XP computer but still no luck. Ive done some research on google and a HAL.dll file is kind of like a layer file that lets the OS talk to the computer hardware, so with that said it think i need a installion cd to get a basic HAL.dll file to replace the corrupted one so it can write that hardware this in the crashed computer to the file. Only problem is i dont have a installation cd cause i have a HP computer and their restore files are on a second partition on the same drive as C:\. So what im trying to get too is, to see if any one out there might have a Windows XP Home Edition cd that they could let me have a copy of that file. PLEASE!!! If anyone can think of any other thing i could try let me know. I have also done a system recovery via the recovery console by a XP recovery disc that i made on another XP computer. Still a no go.


thanks in advance for any help you guys may have!!

when you say there is a recovery partion on the drive that means you will have the files already look for the wim file the files are in there and you can recover the file that way.

Watch this he is good



Kind Regards
