XP and ntoskernel

My laptop crashes at the beginning of booting XP, even in Safe Mode. The error is 'Report Problem: load needed dlls for kernel'.

After some searching it appears that the hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe files are mismatched. However as I can't even start Safe Mode any ideas on how I might correct this problem.

As long as you have a bootable copy of your O/S the fix should be straight forward,good luck...
