Hi all, I have been using an old computer HP A1220N for saving TS folders and I know I was very close to filling the 200gb hard drive and I went ahead and loaded some more without thinking and that is when my computer started to act up. It was just frozen and was not rebooting. Eventually with a hard reset the computer tried to boot up but I kept getting a ntokrnl.exe file missing or corrupt error on a black screen. I went ahead and purchased xp home sp3 since my computer came from HP with it installed and I never had recovery cd's (never made them). I ran the cd to boot into windows and tried to replace the missing file... Then I started getting this error: system32.hal.dll missing or corrupt. So after trying for awhile to fix it via repair I gave up and reformatted the HDD and did a clean install... Well it tooks about 50 tries to get it to install and boot. Throughout the install process the computer would constantly reboot and start over at the 39 min mark. I even got it to within two minutes of completion several times. Well now the computer is crashing every couple of minutes.. It will lock up and auto reboot or it comes up with a ialmrnt5 display error message.. I believe that what caused the problem was over filling my HDD causing windows files to corrupt... Now I am in a bind because it seems like the driver for the onboard intel chip set is no longer available.. Here are my computer specs... Hoping somebody has some insight, TIA.
