"The procedure entry point ntoskrnl.ExiAcquireFastMutex could not be located in the dynamic link library HAL.dll"
All i get is what's above on a blue screen and the laptop will not load up, just keeps shutting down and re-starting, anyone any ideas as to how to fix this without re-installing as i have tried system restore, that won't work, won't even boot into safe mode either and tried last known good configuration etc but nothing works, please help, anyone.
All the searches seem to point to a re-install as the only cure. It looks like malware or spyware maybe the cause. Do you have the skills to remove the drive and connect it as a slave to another pc? You could then run a series of scans and if nothing else recover your data.
