help My lenovo won't boot up. says windows root system32\hal.dll is missing or corrupt

2010-01-14, 5:52 AM

I then put in my windows xp pro disk in to boot from the disk as suggested.

Now it appears there is another problem.


it says setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.


Suggest running a manufacturer supplied diagnostic or set up program of which I don't ever remember having.


Where can I find this disk?


I just finished dumping all my personal files off of the computer ran virus scanners, glary utilities etc to give this computer to a collage student but now it is not worth a paperweight. Would love someone to help me get it running so someone in need can make good use of it. I donate an average of 2 or 3 laptops or desktops every 2 years.


appreciate the help in advance.

If this software is downloadable I would be happy to just burn it and put it in my Lenovo.




I can be reached at canlendyou at aol dot com.
