the problem is that when i start the laptop it says :
"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
Please re-install a copy of the above file."
1)I know that i should boot the laptop on the Windows XP SP2 CD and repair it from the Windows setup, but i wanna know if i should do a automated repair wish repairs everything i guess or just re-install a copy of hal.dll and if i just have to re-install a copy, what are the commands?
2) It seems that the CD drive of the laptop is not workin well because at some point of the windows setup before reaching the repair part it stops reading the XP CD and ask me to insert it, though its in, and i know the CD is fine because i've tried it on another computer,so i was wondering if there is another way to fix hal.dll without using the CD drive.
Thanks in advance.
