AMD 2000xp PC Chips 841lmr m/b 512DDR Ram 2100. One crutial and one from PCW. 40gig 7200rpm Seagate.
Installed xp upgrade on Tuesday and had a big crash. System said ; <Windowsroot>\system32\hall.dll was missing or currupt. Didn't matter what i did, I could not install this file. The only operating system it would load was 98.Then when I upgraded with xp,there was this blinking message!!
Only way I fixed it was to use Diskwizard and write disk back to zeros(5hours!) and then format and load Xp. All ok except this annoying freeze. Also it stuck on the log on page once. I thought XP was meant to be stable. Didnt have this problem with Me. Help
