Can you use other bootable media to restore the old HAL.DLL file?
I don't believe that System Restore will be of help here, and you'd have to be able to boot into Windows in order to run the System File Checker (SFC.EXE /SCANNOW)
I'd suggest a repair install of XP (a repair install is supposed to leave your programs and data intact). If you have Internet Explorer 7 installed, read this first: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=917964
Then the "how-to" for the repair install is here: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
