Laptop Boot Up Issue

  mEmo99 19:59 11 Dec 2006

When i switch my laptop on i get a media test error telling me to check my cable.

I then get an error pointing to my hal.dll file sying that it is missing or corrupt.

I can't get the laptop to boot from CD-ROM to repair it nor can i get a C:\ prompt to check on my hal.dll file.

I can see the contents when i use an adaptor and connect it to my PC though...

Help would be appreciated...

You say you cant boot from the CDROM what happens when you try.

When my laptop boots I get a screen that says to change the boot order press F10 etc but you have to be very quick to see it does yours have similar (mine is HP)

Can you boot into the bios and change the boot order to boot from the cd.

Apologies if im misreading this.
