This morning, I turned on my computer, only to have it stop booting before it got to the Windows logo. It then gave me the message: windows cannot start because the following file is mssing or corrupt <windows root>/system32/hal.dll.
I then did "ctrl+alt+del" to restart and received the message one more time. I restarted again, with everything going normally. I then did a search for the file in question and found that is was where it was supposed to be. Does this mean it is not missing, but corrupt?
I don't know if I turn off my computer tonight, it will do the same thing when I try to restart. Obviously, the file is not missing, because I was able to eventually boot up. What do I do?
