Ok, so I have a computer that is pretty much nuked, the disk is completely deleted because a virus corrupted my hal.dll file.
I could not use my Windows XP recovery disk because it would always end up going to a BSOD (blue screen of death). I can successfully boot up ISO's though. The installation was successful up until the setup says "Starting Windows Install" or something rather, then it would leave me to a BSOD.
I heard that if i used a Disk Eraser, I could just easily install a fresh version of XP. But when the Disk Eraser, specifically Active@ Kill Disk, had I thought, successfully deleted the disk, I tried booting up Windows XP install again. But to no avail, I got the BSOD again.
Is there a way I could save my PC, or does this really mean I have to buy a new machine again?
