Won't boot - hal.dll missing
Hi all hope someone can help me.
I tried to turn on my laptop the other day and all that appeared were thin horizontal lines and then a sort of negative screen and then after a while it just went white. i plugged my flat screen into the laptop and it said it could not boot as there was a missing file.
I have tried to boot from my windows CD with no joy, I recently replaced the original cd-rom with a cd-rw drive, not sure if that could have anything to do with it.
I've tried changing the BIOS to boot from cd-rom, but no joy with that, i'm now stumped.
Any help would be gratefully appreciated, cheers, Kets.
