I did something stupid

Recommended Posts

Ok, heres the story.

Last night i was doing something on the internet, when i came along this page that said i needed to update my video codecs to go this this site. well i clicked ok. so it started to install, then im think this ain't right to I closed it thinking it was some virus or something. No today i went on my laptop and then a window popped up said that something was wrong.

So i decided that i would just reset my laptop back a couple days. while in the process of doing that i screwed up somehow. I went to PC recovery and started to go though that. and when it started to back up my file i decided not to do that yet to i shut done my computer to stop it(thinking that nothing would happen).

Now when i try to start my laptop it tells me this:

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

<windows root>/system32/hal.dll.

Please re-install a copy of the above file."

What did i do? and how can i fix it?

If he got a XP disk than that the way to go ,But most notebook manufacturer do not give you a disk  unless you pay extra for it. They usually partition the drive and put a System Recovery or PC Recovery in that partition.

I dont have a disk. I started it up again and i pressed something and it went to my pc recovery screen.

Will this erase everything? I hope not because i had my laptop just the way i liked it.
