Question about Lenovo ThinkPad Computers & Internet
Cannot install my old copy of ultimate yahtzee on my windows 7 64-bit system it installs on a 32-bit system. Boggle won't install either. how do I get the d3drm.dll file on the laptop?
You can, if you have it already set up on another computer, copy it from the lib on your HDD and save to a USB drive and then replace the one on the 64 bit computer with it. Some software simply will not work with 64 bit OS's though it is rare.

Can you reboot and get into windows or is now corrupt?
What do you mean by 'uninstalled XP'??
You cant uninstall it unless you format the drive, in which case the recovery discs are now probably useless as they rely on a folder on the HDD called i386.
Recovery discs normally dont have the OS on them, they rely on the I386 folder to gather info about the computer and then restores it to the state when it was new.
If you can acess the system, reboot and go into the bios and change the boot sequence to CD, then insert the first recovery disc. then save the settings and the computer will reboot and start the recovery process again, this should clear up the error.
If it does not it will be because the i386 folder is missing in which case you can either explore the recovery discs for it or you will have to buy a copy of Windows XP.

Boot from windows install CD, when it loads, press "R" for repair.
It will go out to dos.
when it gets to dos, type: CHKDSK C: /P then press enter and let it repair, when done
just type EXIT, it will reboot, remove the CD and see if it reboots. If this doesnt work or you need more help, let me know, i can be more detailed if you need, Im just at work and dont have alot of time to type.

Yes the hal.dll is one of the files it needs to boot up, It gets all of the hardware together..I own and ASUS and they pretty good about sending disk. Pull the disk out that came with the system. Just put it your CD and then go into Windows Explorer and look for that file. Its probably under i386 folder or Win32 folder. Once you find it then just drag it over to the c: drive and you are ready..I didn't get a cd player in mine, so you probably didn't either. I ended up buying one from Best Buy, it works really good, it's an HP.But anyway if you can copy that file over to the C: drive of your computer then you will be ok...it didn't way anything else did it> Let me know how it turn out..

HAL.DLL error seems to be caused by corruption of the MFT and root directory. This usually results from a blue screen crash when playing flash video from the web.
The easy fix: Press ALT+F10 at boot-up and run the factory restore. This will lose all of your installed programs and data and restore the machine to its original state.
The 'get your data back' fix: You will need a second (working) XP PC with a CD ROM drive and a standard Windows XP CD (a manufacturer's 'factory restore' disc will not work.)
Follow the instructions here http://komku.blogspot.com/2008/11/install-windows-xp-using-usb-flash-disk.html to create a bootable XP USB memory stick. Also copy C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOCHK.EXE onto the memory stick, You may need that later. DO NOT follow the part about booting off the stick and deleting partitions. Instead...
Boot off the memory stick and select the TXT option. Follow the options to get to the recovery console. Run CHKDSK C: at the recovery console. Once CHKDSK has finished, reboot and everything should be fine. You may find the console asking for the location of AUTOCHK.EXE. It is on the flash drive, which (I think) is mapped as drive U:
Keep the memory stick with your Aspire One at all times, because you never know when you'll need it. Mine has done this about four times in six months.
